Clayton Kershaw is no longer winless.
The 20-year-old prize of the Dodgers' farm system picked up his first major league win today, tossing six shutout innings at Dodger Stadium in a 2-0, sweep-sealing victory over the Washington Nationals
Kershaw's first victory landed on the same day that Dodgers Manager Joe Torre said Andruw Jones would be the team's fourth outfielder until further notice. Torre opted for a starting outfield of Juan Pierre in left, Matt Kemp in center and Andre Ethier in right.
Jones, who signed a two-year, $36-million contract in the winter, is hitting .166 with two home runs and 12 runs batted in. He has four hits and 31 strikeouts in 54 at-bats with runners in scoring position.
Chan Ho Park, Hong-Chih Kuo and Jonathan Broxton combined to pitch three scoreless innings for the Dodgers, with Broxton picking up his fourth save.
