Trea Turner slam, solo HR; Kershaw hurt, Dodgers beat Brews

By BETH HARRIS AP Sports Writer

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Trea Turner hit a grand slam and solo home run as the Los Angeles Dodgers extended the NL West race for at least another day, rallying past the Milwaukee Brewers 8-6 after starter Clayton Kershaw got hurt.

Pinch-hitter Matt Beaty launched a tiebreaking homer in the seventh inning to help the defending World Series champions maintain their increasingly slim bid for a ninth consecutive division title.

San Francisco has clinched at least a tie for the title and reduced its magic number to one.

The Giants lead Los Angeles by two games.

The Dodgers trailed the NL Central champion Brewers 5-1 after three innings, but came back to win their 13th in a row at home.

Kershaw exited his start with left forearm discomfort in the second inning.
