DENVER -- Clayton Kershaw turned in a clunker, a rare bad outing for one of baseballs best pitchers. After the game, Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly was asked a question he hardly ever hears: Whats wrong with Kershaw? "Who got the win today?" Mattingly teased. Kershaw, of course, even if he didnt have his electric stuff. The lefty surrendered a career-high 11 hits in five shaky innings and Yasiel Puig scored the go-ahead run before leaving with a strained right knee as the surging Dodgers beat the Colorado Rockies 10-8 on Monday. It was hardly vintage Kershaw (14-Cool, who struggled with his fastball command. He vowed to quickly repress this performance, not take a single thing from it. "Theres nothing to gain from pitching bad like this," said Kershaw, who gave up five runs as his ERA jumped from a league-leading 1.72 to 1.89. "Im just going to chalk this up to a bad start and enjoy getting a win I probably didnt deserve." Puig certainly had an interesting day. He was called out for interference on the bases in the first inning, hit by a pitch in the fourth and then aggravated his knee on an awkward slide into third base in the sixth. He gingerly jogged home from third on Hanley Ramirezs sacrifice fly, before being replaced in right field. Mattingly will sit Puig on Tuesday, but was planning to do so anyway. Puig said through a translator the knee has been giving him trouble for a little while now and just acted up. "Going to get treatment see how it feels," Puig said. Andre Ethier had three hits, including a two-run homer, to lift the Dodgers to their fifth straight victory. Theyre now 35-8 since the All-Star break. Jeff Manship (0-5) took the loss as he gave up three runs -- two earned -- in relief of starter Chad Bettis. The Dodgers bullpen struggled late, with Ronald Belisario allowing two runs in the eighth to cut the lead to 8-7. But he got Michael Cuddyer to hit into an inning-ending double play with the tying runner on third. Los Angeles added two insurance runs in the ninth on a run-scoring single from Juan Uribe and an RBI double from Carl Crawford. That came in handy as Kenley Jansen endured a rocky ninth, giving up a solo homer to Wilin Rosario, before picking up his 25th save in 28 chances. Kershaw had a forgettable first inning, giving up an uncharacteristic three runs. After that, he quickly settled into a groove, even helping himself out at the plate with a tiebreaking two-run single in the fifth. But the lead didnt last, with Nolan Arenado hitting an RBI double in the bottom half of the inning and later scoring Jordan Pachecos single. Kershaw came into game with opposing teams hitting just .186 off of him. The Rockies, using a makeshift lineup that didnt include Troy Tulowitzki or Todd Helton, pounded him for 11 hits. "Just be aggressive with him," Arenado said of his teams approach at the plate. "His stuff is really good. You try not to get behind in the count and we got to him pretty good." Sure did. "I didnt pitch great. They got a ton of hits. Just one of those days," said Kershaw, who was 2 for 2 with a sacrifice at the plate. "They beat me up pretty good. The team picked me up. Got a bunch of runs today. Feels good." And well-warranted, in Mattinglys opinion. "He deserved one of these as good as hes pitched," Mattingly said. "Obviously, theres nothing wrong with Clayton Kershaw." NOTES: Newly acquired Dodgers INF Michael Young could make his first start Tuesday at third base. He struck out Monday when he was called on to pinch-hit in the ninth. Young was acquired over the weekend from the Philadelphia Phillies for a minor league pitcher. ... The Dodgers plan to keep OF Matt Kemp (ankle) on a rehab assignment until he feels comfortable. "Wed all like to have him back as soon as possible," Mattingly said. ... Mattingly said RHP Edinson Volquez will start Wednesdays game against Colorado. ... Helton got the afternoon off a day after collecting his 2,500th hit, while Tulowitzki (sore legs) and Dexter Fowler (knee) also were out. ... Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez (sprained right middle finger) could soon come off the disabled list. Chris Ivory Jersey . A judge had summoned Clemens and Brian McNamee to federal court in Brooklyn for settlement talks aimed at heading off a trial in the defamation case. McNamees lawyer emerged saying an agreement wasnt likely. "I think this is a case where the lines are deeply drawn in the sand," said attorney Richard Emery. Malik Jackson Jersey . Bilbaos first victory in four rounds lifted it four points clear of Real Sociedad and kept it in command of Spains last Champions League berth for next season. In contrast, Betis was left 11 points from safety after a dismal performance that at times bordered on self-destruction amid some questionable refereeing decisions.

And follow right through Deadline Day for all the updates. From Pierre LeBrun While Anaheim GM Bob Murray said earlier this season he was not going to trade Jonas Hiller despite the fact hes an unrestricted free agent on July 1, some sources have told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun that Murray might be willing to move another goalie.Sebastian Coe said track and field will continue to experiment with innovation as the sport attempts to win back fans following recent scandal. Speaking as the curtain was set to come down on the World Indoor Championships, the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) president said changes introduced in Portland could feature at next years World Outdoor Championships in London.In the shot put, long jump and triple jump the field was whittled down to the top four athletes for the final attempts in each event, with the changes made in order to ensure that the entire focus of the crowd was on the finale of each event as it took place. Great Britains Robbie Grabarz competes in the high jump final at the IAAF World Indoor Championships in Portland While the innovations appeared to be well-received by spectators, they were not universally embraced by athletes, with New Zealand shot put star Valerie Adams complaining on Saturday about delays in her event. However, Coe said the spirit of change represented the future.Its really important that when we have the opportunity to road test innovation we take it, Coe said.Not everything were going to do is going to work. But Id rather be in a sport where we sometimes have to say Okay, that didnt work quite as planned rather than sitting there sclerotically for the next 10 years. IAAF president Sebastian Coe You arent going to see growth and development of the sport like that if you dont innovate.ddddddddddddSome of the things that weve road-tested here youll see in other formats. And youll see evidence of that in London 2017 and beyond.Coe meanwhile insisted that the absence of Russia in Portland - banned from competition after last years World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) report which uncovered a systemic doping regime in Russian athletics - had not tarnished the meeting. Burundis Francin Niyonsaba (R) and Great Britains Lynsey Sharp compete in the 800m at the IAAF World Indoor Championships in Portland He said: Its a sad moment for our sport ... but it hasnt stopped this from being a fantastic athletic experience for spectators and athletes alike.Coe said the attendances at the Oregon Convention Center - which have been close to sold out over the four days of competition - indicated that the sport retained support despite drugs and corruption scandals.It shows you that the sport is still very strong, Coe added. Nobody is denying the challenges that lie ahead to regain trust but this has been a pretty good start.
