Clayton Kershaw stepped atop a major league mound Tuesday night in Washington, D.C. for the first time since the Dodgers’ season-opening victory against the Diamondbacks on March 22 at the Sydney Cricket Ground in southeastern Australia.

The ace left-hander showed no rust following that nearly-seven-week absence -- the result of a teres major muscle strain -- throwing seven scoreless innings and striking out a total of nine Nationals hitters as Los Angeles rolled to an 8-3 victory.
