LOS ANGELES, CA - Clayton Kershaw pitched eight strong innings for his major league leading 17th win and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Washington Nationals 4-1 Tuesday night.

Doug Fister (12-6) lost his third consecutive start. He went five-plus innings, gave up 10 hits, four runs, walked two and struck out two.

Bryce Harper homered in the seventh for the Nationals' only run of the game. It was the first homer by a lefty against Kershaw this season.

With the win, the Dodgers (78-61) moved one game behind the Nationals (78-59) for the National League's best record.
