Dodgers week in review


A two-game Dodgers winning streak was snapped last Sunday afternoon at the Stadium as Arizona tripped up the Boys in Blue 3-1.

Chris Iannetta belted a solo homer and Jake Lamb added a bases-loaded walk in the third inning while Paul Goldschmidt tacked on a run batted in single in the seventh.

The only run the Dodgers (7-6) scored came in the fourth inning when Yasiel Puig unloaded a two-out, run-tallying double.

On Saturday, Puig (three hits with four RBIs) lined a three-run smash (fourth) in the eighth inning that iced an 8-4 decision over the Diamondbacks.

Logan Forsythe collected three hits and scored a run while Alex Wood (1-0) was credited with the victory after working three and one-third hitless and scoreless innings in relief with three strikeouts.

Three-time Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw bested one-time teammate Zack Greinke 7-1 on Friday.

Kershaw (2-1) left after eight and one-third frames, fanning eight with one walk and four hits with one run.

Andrew Toles scored two runs and had a single and a homer with a pair of RBIs.

Brett Anderson (1-0) limited the Boys of Summer to three hits across five frames for Chicago at Wrigley Field on Thursday as the world champion Cubs prevailed 4-0.

Anthony Rizzo (two hits and two RBIs) and Addison Russell each clubbed solo shots.

Brandon McCarthy (2-0) was on the mark as he helped the Dodgers to a 2-0 triumph on Wednesday after working six innings while allowing four hits with four strikeouts and three walks.

Toles homered in the first inning and Chase Utley added an insurance run in the ninth.

The Cubs emerged with a 3-2 victory on Monday after Rizzo’s base hit in the ninth drove in pinch hitter Jon Jay, who singled.

Corey Seager’s run-producing double in the sixth inning sliced the lead to 2-1.
