Clayton Kershaw has a solid outing in Dodgers' loss to Giants

ON THE MOUND: Clayton Kershaw limited the Giants to three runs and seven hits over seven innings. The only real mistake he made was in the seventh inning, when he hung a curveball to Brandon Hicks, who sent it over the left-field wall for a two-run home run. Chris Withrow gave up a run in the eighth inning that increased the Dodgers' deficit to 4-2. Closer Kenley Jansen's three-run 10th inning included two walks and a wild pitch.

AT THE PLATE: Hanley Ramirez tied the score at 4-4 and sent the game into extra innings with a two-run, ninth-inning home run off Giants closer Sergio Romo. Earlier in the game, the slumping shortstop doubled and scored on a single by Adrian Gonzalez. Yasiel Puig hit the Dodgers' other home run, a sixth-inning blast off starter Tim Hudson.

ON THE FARM: Catcher A.J. Ellis started his minor league rehabilitation assignment, catching nine innings for triple-A Albuquerque in an 11-0 defeat to Tulsa. Ellis was one for two and was caught stealing. He is expected to play in at least one more game for Albuquerque.

MEDICAL UPDATE: Juan Uribe ran outdoors before the game but remained unavailable. The Dodgers remain undecided whether to place the veteran third baseman on the 15-day disabled list.

SECURITY MEASURES: Metal detectors will be utilized at select gates for the Monday and Wednesday games as part of a plan to gradually implement them at Dodger Stadium. Every major league stadium will be required to have metal detectors by 2015.

UP NEXT: Dan Haren (4-1, 2.68) will face the Miami Marlins and Tom Koehler (3-2, 1.99) at Dodger Stadium on Monday at 7 p.m. On the air: TV: SportsNet LA. Radio: 570, 1020.
