Dodgers Take Rubber Game from CubsLOS ANGELES (AP) - Ricky Nolasco pitched eight innings of three-hit ball, Hanley Ramirez and Andre Ethier hit solo homers and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Chicago Cubs 4-0 on Wednesday.
The first-place Dodgers earned their 21st victory in August, tying the Los Angeles record for most wins in a calendar month. They avoided a second straight series loss by taking two of three from the last-place Cubs.
Nolasco struck out a season high-tying 11 and won his sixth straight start. Edwin Jackson took the loss.
Dodgers rookie Yasiel Puig left after four innings with no immediate explanation. He didn't slide into second base to try to break up a double play in the first inning and visibly reacted after striking out in the third.
