LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Clayton Kershaw got his 19th victory, allowing one hit over five-plus innings before he was ejected along with manager Don Mattingly, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the National League West-leading Arizona Diamondbacks 3-2 Wednesday night.

Gerardo Parra got the only hit off Kershaw (19-5), a double in the third, before he retired the next seven batters in a row and then got ejected for hitting Parra on the right elbow.

The incident was a carryover from Tuesday night's game in which Parra momentarily stood at the plate to admire his solo homer off reliever Hong-Chih Kuo that tied the game in the seventh.

Parra was annoyed Kuo had thrown an earlier pitch near his head, although afterward he said he didn't think it was deliberate.
