The quick lead came in support of Clayton Kershaw, who managed to avoid squandering it despite some early control trouble. Pitching at Miller Park for the first time since closing Game 7 of the Championship Series here in October, Kershaw allowed two runs across six innings in his second start off the injured list. His command was initially faulty — he issued four walks, including two to Yelich, in the first three innings — but he didn’t allow a hit until Orlando Arcia led off the fifth with a triple into the right-field corner. Two batters later, Kershaw served up a slider over the plate to Lorenzo Cain. It landed just over the wall in left-center field.
