LOS ANGELES (AP) - Clayton Kershaw scattered nine hits and struck out nine while tying his career-best winning streak of 10 games, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Atlanta Braves 2-1 Thursday night to complete the three-game sweep.

Kershaw (13-2) pitched his second consecutive complete game for the second time in his career. He is unbeaten in his last 11 starts with a 10-0 record since June 2. The left-hander beat the Braves for the first time during the regular season in his career.

The Dodgers won their season-high sixth in a row and swept the Braves for the first time since taking four in a row from July 26-29, 1990, at home.
