Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Despite Yasiel Puig out of the lineup and Zack
Greinke getting an extra day of rest before his start, Stephen Fife made his
first start in almost a month and kept the Los Angeles Dodgers on track.
The Dodgers built on what is already a franchise record with their 14th
straight road win and improved to 14-2 since the All-Star Break with a 1-0
victory against the Chicago Cubs to wrap up a four-game series sweep.
Fife (4-3) made his first start since July 6 after missing time due to right
shoulder bursitis and tossed 5 1/3 scoreless innings with five strikeouts.
Hanley Ramirez walked and scored a run for Los Angeles, but left the game in
the seventh inning after he made a catch in foul ground and ran into the wall
past third base. He held his right shoulder as he walked off the field.
Andre Ethier and A.J. Ellis were the only Dodgers to record a hit en route to
Carlos Villanueva (2-8) was a hard-luck loser as he dropped his fourth
straight decision. He gave up one run on two hits in six innings.
Dioner Navarro and Nate Schierholtz each had two hits, but the Cubs fell for
the seventh time in eight games.
