Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Chris Capuano tossed 6 1/3 scoreless innings to
lead the way in the Los Angeles Dodgers' 13th consecutive road win, a 3-0
triumph over the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field.
Carl Crawford contributed three hits, including a two-run single, to help the
Dodgers establish a new franchise record for consecutive victories away from
home. The mark was originally set from Aug. 25-Sept. 6, 1924, when the club
was then located in Brooklyn and known as the Robins.
Capuano (4-6) scattered six hits and a walk while striking out five, with the
veteran lefty aided by three double plays turned by the Dodgers' infield. Four
Los Angeles relievers combined for 2 2/3 frames of two-hit ball to finish off
the shutout, with Kenley Jansen striking out to in a perfect ninth to record
his 16th save.
Jeff Samardzija (6-10) racked up nine strikeouts in six innings of work for
Chicago, but issued five walks and permitted all three runs on seven hits.
The Cubs have now lost six of seven on their current homestand, with three of
those setbacks taking place in this four-game set which concludes Sunday.
