The Los Angeles Dodgers hung on for a 5-3 win over the Cincinnati Reds Sunday.
Kershaw, back from a hip injury that kept him from pitching since Sept. 11, threw five innings and allowed only one run on five hits. He also walked five. Gonzalez, a middle-of-the-order bat who hadn't homered since his debut game with the Dodgers last month, hit solo shots in the third and seventh innings as Los Angeles remained three games back of the last Wild Card spot.
