Slugfest! Kershaw wins, Dodgers bang 6 HRs, beat Pirates 8-3

Clayton Kershaw pitched his way to freedom while earning his first win in 2 ½ months.

The three-time NL Cy Young Award winner won't be facing any further restrictions in his next start after a solid outing in the Los Angeles Dodgers' 8-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Tuesday night.

Five Dodgers homered including Max Muncy with a pair, and the team's six homers were the most they've hit at home since also launching six on Sept. 9, 2013, against Arizona.

"You want to get guys back in the dugout as fast as possible the way they're swinging the bats," said Kershaw, who was limited by a pitch count in his last three outings.
