MELBOURNE, Australia -- Defending champion Adam Scott shot a 5-under 66 Saturday to open a four-stroke lead at the Australian Masters and close in on a second consecutive win Down Under. The Masters champion and winner of last weeks Australian PGA has a three-round total of 14-under 199 at Royal Melbourne. "Im in a really good position for tomorrow," Scott said. "I put the ball in play and made a couple of putts for the first time this week." Vijay Singh shot a 63 and was in a four-way tie for second with Australians Matthew Griffin (69), Nick Cullen (69) and Nathan Holman (70). American Matt Kuchar was sixth after a 67, five strokes behind Scott. Singh, 50, is looking for his first tournament win since 2008. This is Scotts first trip back to Australia since winning at Augusta in April. Hell partner Jason Day next week in the World Cup, also at Royal Melbourne, then play the Australian Open at Royal Sydney the week after. Without mentioning a number, Scott says he could improve on Sunday and win twice in a row. "A good score is going to be out there," he said. "Not wasting any shots and taking advantage of the good ones. Vijay must have done something like that today." Singh bogeyed the par-4 ninth, but had three birdies on the back nine to move into contention. He started the day seven strokes behind Scott. He credited a recent switch from a long putter to a conventional one for his strong play Saturday. "The first nine holes were incredible, I thought I could have birdied every hole. I was three under, but the first eight holes I didnt hit anything outside of 10 feet," Singh said. He will play in the final group with Scott, a rare Sunday occurrence for the Fijian veteran who has battled injuries over the past several years. "After 08 I had a couple of operations on my knee so that kind of got me back two years," Singh said. "And then you start to limp and your whole body kind of reacts differently -- I started to have a lot of back aches. But last year it started to get better, and Im much stronger, healthier and happier." Scott said "its been a while" since he and Singh played together. "His game is in great shape," Scott said. "This course doesnt favour anybody. With good playing, theres a good score there." Jarrod Lyle, continuing his comeback from a 20-month layoff due to leukemia, shot 70 Saturday and was at even par. Lyle was diagnosed with leukemia in March 2012 when he was a regular on the PGA Tour. Lyle, who had leukemia for the first time when he was 17, has a medical exemption to return to the PGA Tour when hes ready. After making the cut Friday, he said that might not be until late 2014.

LOS ANGELES -- Clayton Kershaw would have welcomed a little help from the umpires in the ninth inning, if only to end the game a bit sooner. When he didnt get it, the Dodgers ace finished off the Braves on his own. He scattered nine hits and struck out nine while tying his career-best winning streak of 10 games in a 2-1 victory Thursday night that completed Los Angeles three-game sweep of Atlanta. "Fortunately for us a lot of times he comes out on top," catcher A.J. Ellis said. "Hes an amazing talent who is just as strong in the ninth as he is in the first. Theres no drop-off ever. Were spoiled rotten." Kershaw (13-2) notched his second consecutive complete game for the second time in his career following his three-hit shutout at San Francisco last weekend. He is unbeaten in his last 11 starts with a 10-0 record since June 2. The left-hander beat the Braves for the first time during the regular season in his career. "You want to be the same from the first inning to the ninth," Kershaw said. "I got hurt this year at the beginning, but now I feel pretty strong." Kershaw had to work to close out the Braves in the ninth, when he finally gave up a run. With one out, B.J. Upton singled and advanced to third on Tommy La Stellas single. Freddie Freeman went down swinging for the second out, bringing the cheering crowd of 51,163 to its feet. But the Braves closed to 2-1 on Justin Uptons infield single to third. Juan Uribe charged to field the ball and fired to first, where Adrian Gonzalez stretched for the throw. Upton was called safe by umpire Mike Estabrook. Manager Don Mattingly challenged the call as the crowd grew rowdier. Kershaw crouched behind the mound waiting for a decision. It took 2 1-2 minutes before the umpires upheld the call, putting the potential go-ahead run on first. Evan Gattis grounded out to shortstop to end the game. "It looked really close. The umpire got it right," Kershaw said. "t;It would have been nice to get that overturned.dddddddddddd" Yasiel Puig homered as the Dodgers stretched their winning streak to a season-high six games and swept the Braves for the first time since taking four in a row from July 26-29, 1990, at home. The Dodgers, who turned three double plays, moved a season-best 3 1/2 games ahead of the idle Giants in the NL West. Julio Teheran (10-7) dueled with Kershaw, but fell behind in the first. Puig walked and scored from first when Gonzalez doubled to deep right-centre field. "I had my best and everything was working, but I made a couple of mistakes and they got two runs," Teheran said. "It was fun (pitching against Kershaw). I know its not that easy to face him, but we had a real battle out there." Puig extended the lead to 2-0 with his 13th homer in the third. Teheran gave up five hits in eight innings. He struck out nine and walked three in his third complete game of the season and his first loss. TRAINERS ROOM Braves: Outfielder Jason Heyward missed his third straight game with a sore back that he strained last week chasing a foul ball. Manager Fredi Gonzalez said he hopes Heyward can return sometime this weekend in San Diego. Dodgers: Left-hander Scott Elbert was outrighted to Triple-A Albuquerque. ON DECK Braves: Atlanta heads to San Diego for a three-game series beginning Friday. Left-hander Mike Minor (4-6, 5.23 ERA) will start the opener. Dodgers: The Cubs arrive Friday for a three-game set, with Dan Haren (8-8, 4.49 ERA) taking the mound. The right-hander lost all four of his starts in July. UPTONS HITTING Justin Upton is hitting .347 with nine runs scored, six doubles, two homers and eight RBIs in 14 games since the All-Star break. DOMINATING PUIG Puig has hit safely in all 11 career games against the Braves, batting .511 and that includes four post-season games. It was his 16th consecutive game hitting safely against an NL East opponent since May 2.
