Clayton Kershaw was sailing along with a shutout in the sixth inning tonight when he gave up his first career grand slam -- a monster shot by Phillies outfielder Aaron Altherr. Kershaw had been sharp with his breaking ball all night, but he threw one too many sliders to Altherr. Manager Dave Roberts pulled Kershaw for a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning. The Dodgers, who have a magic number of four to clinch the NL West, trail the Phillies 4-2.
