Clayton Kershaw struck out four over six scoreless innings, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers past the San Francisco Giants 7-0 a day after he spoke out in support of his Black teammates as the clubs decided not to play in protest of racial injustice. 

AJ Pollock hit a two-run homer and Dodgers star Mookie Betts reached 1,000 hits in his 824th game with his sixth-inning single. 

The souvenir ball was quickly retrieved, authenticated and put in a protective box.

The Dodgers won the nightcap 2-0, as the Giants were held to just two hits, after managing only four in the early game.
