Clayton Kershaw's return helps end Dodgers' slide with 1-0 defeat of Padres

The toughest obstacle Clayton Kershaw faced Friday night appeared about 15 minutes after a 1-0 victory over the San Diego Padres .

As Kershaw stood before a group of reporters, after six scoreless innings in his first outing for the Dodgers since July 23, a potato chip lodged in his throat.

During the fourth, as he struck out the side, Kershaw induced a strikeout of outfielder Jose Pirela by bouncing a curveball.

When Kershaw singled in the fifth inning, after a walk by rookie outfielder Alex Verdugo in the second plate appearance of his career, it was only the Dodgers’ second hit of the evening.

He froze outfielder Jabari Blash with an 0-2 fastball, fanned third baseman Cory Spangenberg with a slider and ended the inning on a groundout from catcher Austin Hedges.
