DODGERS HOLD OFF CUBS IN SERIES FINALE

The Los Angeles Dodgers spoiled Jon Lesters return to the starting rotation by scoring runs on an error and sacrifice fly Thursday to nip the Chicago Cubs 2-1 in the final game of the three game series at Wrigley Field. The  win enabled the Dodgers to avoid a sweep. Lester fell to 1-1 after allowing two runs on four hits in five innings in his return from a left hamstring strain. Cody Bellinger drove in the game winner-his 31st RBI of the season tying Christian Yelich of Milwaukee. Pedro Baez (2-1) picked up the win in relief for LA with Kenly Janzen picking up the save despite allowing Albert Almora Jr to hit a solo homer in the ninth. The Cubs are in Arizona Friday night to open up a three game series with the Diamondbacks. Kyle Hendricks (1-3) will go for the Cubs in the opener against Robbie Ray (0-1). The game can be heard on Lite 103 WAKO beginning with the pregame at 8:05 p.m. Central Time.
