Kemp, who had major foot surgery in the off-season, sprinted home without a play. Jackson's weak throw was off line, and the Dodgers had a 2-1 lead.
Haren still barely hit 90 mph, but he held the Tigers to three hits, walking one and striking out four. The only run he allowed came on Jackson's homer in the second inning. In the 12 innings of his first two starts as a Dodger, he has allowed one run.
The Dodgers' first run came on their first at-bat. Gordon, who'd hit only two home runs in parts of three previous seasons, tagged a 1-2 pitch and sent it out to right.
For the night, Scherzer (0-1) allowed two runs on six hits and a walk, striking out four.
Withrow threw a perfect seventh and has pitched in five games (six innings) this season without allowing a run; he has struck out nine.
