Clayton Kershaw felt strong ? if not quite effective ? in his return from the disabled list.

That was good enough for the Los Angeles Dodgers. They had muscle to spare against the New York Mets.

Kershaw and Jacob deGrom stumbled in an unexpected ace showdown Will Dissly Color Rush Jersey , Matt Kemp hit a pinch grand slam and the Dodgers won 8-3 on Saturday night.

The Dodgers have won 11 straight against the Mets dating to May 2016, matching their best run in the rivalry. Los Angeles beat New York 11 straight times in 1963-64.

Kershaw gave up two runs over three innings in a surprise return from a lower back strain. He threw 55 pitches, starting out strong before laboring through his final inning.

?Good to be back,? Kershaw said. ?Now I can focus on getting better.?

Left-handed rookie Caleb Ferguson (1-1) replaced him and escaped a couple tight situations over four scoreless innings for his first major league win.

DeGrom (5-3) allowed three earned runs in six innings, including Max Muncy?s 14th home run in the first. He entered the game with a major league-leading 1.51 ERA and hadn?t allowed three earned runs in a game since April 16 against Washington.

New York has lost five straight overall and 12 of 13 at home. The Mets have scored four or fewer runs in 15 straight home games dating to May 20. Some fans at Citi Field were wearing paper bags over their heads by the end of the game.

?It was tough tonight,? said Brandon Nimmo, who had three hits for New York.

Kemp cleared the bases during a five-run eighth inning with his eighth career slam and 13th home run this season. Chris Taylor had a key two-run pinch double, and Los Angeles won for the 24th time in 33 games.

KERSHAW BUILDING UP

Kershaw was scheduled to make a rehab start with Triple-A Oklahoma City at Omaha Josh Sitton Color Rush Jersey , but Los Angeles decided Friday to have him pitch in New York because of precarious weather in Nebraska. The lefty ace had been sidelined since June 1.

Kershaw was electric in the first inning, freezing leadoff man Nimmo on a curveball for a three-pitch strikeout and catching Todd Frazier looking for a five-pitch K.

The three-time Cy Young Award winner wasn?t as sharp after that. Michael Conforto and Jose Bautista lined consecutive doubles in the second inning to tie it at 1, and Kershaw threw 25 pitches in the third inning, including an RBI single by Wilmer Flores to put New York ahead 2-1.

Kershaw struck out four, walked one and allowed five hits before Taylor hit for him in the fourth. Kershaw was expected to be limited to roughly 60 pitches, and he threw an extra simulated inning inside after being replaced.

?The most important thing, he came out of it feeling good, feeling strong Harrison Phillips Color Rush Jersey ,? manager Dave Roberts said.

FERGUSON?S ?GOOD TREND?

Ferguson struck out six, walked one and allowed three hits. The 21-year-old worked out of trouble in the fifth and seventh innings. The latter jam emerged when Cody Bellinger badly misplayed Nimmo?s low liner to center, leading to a one-out triple. Ferguson then struck out Frazier and got Asdrubal Cabrera to ground out.

Ferguson dropped his ERA from 7.59 to 5.52 in his first career relief appearance ? he?d previously made three starts. Roberts said Ferguson has shown a ?good trend? of looking more comfortable with each outing.

?He?s handling himself considerably better each time out there,? Roberts said.

JOEY BATS

Bautista hit a solo homer off Yimi Garcia in the eighth inning, his fourth this season.

TRAINER?S ROOM

Dodgers: RHP Walker Buehler (4-1, 2.63) is still dealing with soreness from a right rib microfracture. Buehler nixed a scheduled bullpen session Saturday, and Roberts said he may throw it Sunday if there?s improvement. ? LHP Adam Liberatore was optioned to Triple-A to make space for Kershaw.

UP NEXT

LHP Rich Hill (1-2, 4.99) starts the series finale for the Dodgers. Jason Vargas was supposed to start for New York Authentic Adam Boqvist Jersey , but the Mets placed him on the DL with a strained calf late Saturday night. The team expected to name a replacement starter early Sunday.

Follow Jake Seiner at Christian McCaffrey will have an even bigger role in the Panthers? offense this season.

McCaffrey, the team?s first-round draft pick in 2017, carried the ball 117 times for 435 yards and established a franchise rookie record with 80 receptions. He finished the season with seven touchdowns.

While McCaffrey led the Panthers in receptions, he?ll be counted on to carry the ball more after the team parted ways with its all-time leading rusher Jonathan Stewart. Panthers two-time NFL Coach of the Year Ron Rivera believes McCaffrey is up to the task, saying he can be a running back who carries the ball 200 times this season.

McCaffrey?s durability has been questioned at times because his body build is more akin to a scat back than a power back.

He averaged just 3.7 yards per carry in 2017.

?Yeah, why not?? Rivera said of the prospect of a 200-carry season. ?Everybody forgets that when he was (at Stanford) he carried the ball between the tackles more than anybody and touched the ball more than anybody. I don?t see why not.?

McCaffrey is all for it.

?Obviously anybody on the team wants the ball as much as possible,? McCaffrey said. ?That is football. You should want to compete. But we are here to win football games, so whatever that means and whatever that takes we?re going to do.?

McCaffrey Ronald Acuna Jr. Atlanta Braves Jersey , the son of three-time Super Bowl champion wide receiver Ed McCaffrey, likes what he?s seen so far from new offensive coordinator Norv Turner, who has taken over for Mike Shula.

He feels ?a lot more comfortable? in his second year with the Panthers, even though he?s learning a new offensive scheme. But he wouldn?t discuss what will be different about his workload this year or in what different ways he will be used under Turner for competitive reasons.

?However they want to use me, that is where I will be,? McCaffrey said. ?I think we have a lot of great talent and a lot of different weapons.?

He won?t be carrying the entire load in the backfield, of course.

The Panthers added depth at running back signing 2017 1,000-yard rusher C.J. Anderson Tracy Walker Color Rush Jersey , who played in Denver and helped the Broncos beat Carolina in the Super Bowl in 2015. Carolina is also expecting some added help from Cameron Artis-Payne and Kenjon Barner.

And don?t forget, it was quarterback Cam Newton who led the team with 754 yards rushing and six touchdowns last season.

The 21-year-old McCaffrey enters the season with a new perspective after a ?traumatic experience? earlier this summer.

McCaffrey, his brothers and some friends were in Colorado when they saw an elderly man fall off a cliff while hiking with his 13-year-old grandson. McCaffrey called 911 and one of his friends administered chest compressions.

McCaffrey said paramedics arrived at the scene in about 11 minutes. The 72-year-old Dan Smoker Sr. survived the fall and McCaffrey has developed a friendship with him and his family. He even plans to invite the Smokers to a Panthers home game this season.

?When you see something like that, you have a better appreciation for life and take every moment in,? McCaffrey said. ?We had a decompression moment after that. You look at life and realize it can be gone in any split second.?
