Kershaw goes 1 inning in DH opener, Dodgers swept by Cubs

CHICAGO (AP) — Clayton Kershaw lasted one inning in the shortest start of his stellar career in the opener, Trevor Bauer didn’t get through the fifth in the nightcap, and the Chicago Cubs beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-3 to sweep a split doubleheader. David Bote, who tagged Kershaw for a three-run double in a 7-1 win, delivered a game-ending single in the ninth inning of the nightcap. Javier Báez hit a tying, two-run homer with two outs in the eighth. Chicago took two from the World Series champions after losing seven of nine. The Dodgers lost for the eighth time in 10 games.
