Kershaw returns from bereavement to face Giants

SAN FRANCISCO -- Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw was activated off the bereavement list to start Friday night's game against the Giants, with Ted Lilly going on the 15-day disabled list.

Kershaw was placed on the list Monday after the death of his father in Texas. Kershaw returned to Los Angeles and flew with the club to San Francisco on the Thursday off-day. He received a no-decision after allowing one run on three hits over seven innings in the Dodgers' 2-1 walk-off loss.


Lilly went on the DL with a strained rib-cage muscle on the right side of his back.
