Game 5 slipping away as Dodgers push lead to 5-1

Joakim Soria entered for the seventh inning, and a one-out walk to pitcher Clayton Kershaw started another rally for the Dodgers.

Cody Bellinger, who drove in the winning run in the 13th inning Tuesday night, lined a double to the gap in left-center. Justin Turner followed with a single up the middle to plate Kershaw.

That meant the end for Soria, who gave way to Xavier Cedeno.

A soft roller to third by pinch-hitter Brian Dozier left third baseman Mike Moustakas with only a play at first for the second out as Bellinger scored.

Meanwhile, Kershaw retired the last 13 batters he has faced before departing for Pedro Baez.
