    The Padres lit up Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw to complete the improbable sweep at Chavez Ravine.

    The pitching match-up didn't look promising: Former Cy Young award winner Clayton Kershaw vs. career 6-game winner Tyson Ross.

    Kershaw was not sharp. In fact, he gave up a career high three home runs. Evreth Cabrera hit one in the fourth. Chris Denorfia reached the seats in the fifth and Kyle Blanks hit a no-doubter to left in the sixth. The five runs Kershaw allowed to the Padres was the most in his career.

    Every Padres starter had a hit, including Chase Headley who returned to the line-up for the first time this season.

    The Padres won 7-2 and improve to 5-10 on the season. The Friars are off Thursday and begin a three game series in San Francisco Friday.
