Dodgers complete sweep with 9-2 win over Nationals

WASHINGTON (AP) - Matt Kemp returned to the lineup with a home run and a double in the same inning Sunday, and the Los Angeles Dodgers completed a sweep of the Washington Nationals with a 9-2 win that moved them into a tie for first place - at least temporarily - in the NL West.

Activated from the 15-day disabled list before the game, Kemp led off the second with a homer that bounced among the cherry trees beyond the left-field stands. He then doubled home Andre Ethier in a seven-run inning against Jordan Zimmermann (12-5), quickly turning a much-anticipated matchup of All-Star aces into a rout.

Clayton Kershaw (9-6) allowed two runs and two hits over seven innings with nine strikeouts and no walks, leaving his major league-best ERA at 2.01.

Arizona beat San Francisco 3-1 to avoid a sweep at the hands of the Giants to stay half a game ahead of the Dodgers in the NL West.
