Kershaw bounces back, Dodgers beat winless A’s 5-1

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Clayton Kershaw struck out eight in seven smooth innings to send the Athletics to their worst start in more than a century, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat winless Oakland 5-1 for their fifth straight victory. Mookie Betts homered for the first time this season, a towering shot to left-center in the ninth. Max Muncy and Edwin Rios also went deep for the World Series champion Dodgers. At 0-6, the A’s have matched the poorest start in franchise history. The 1916 Philadelphia Athletics also began the season with six consecutive losses. Oakland and Atlanta are the only winless teams in the majors. Kershaw allowed one run and four hits without issuing a walk.
