Puig leads Dodgers past Cubs 6-4

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (Associated Press) -

Yasiel Puig hit a long home run and scored two runs to lead the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 6-4 win over the Chicago Cubs on Thursday.

Hanley Ramirez and Jerry Hairston each drove in two runs for the Dodgers, who got a win a night after having a 4-game winning streak snapped and improved their record to 11-2 since the All-Star break.

Junior Lake and Anthony Rizzo each homered twice for the Cubs, who lost for the fourth time in five games.

Dodgers starter Ricky Nolasco (7-9) allowed three long solo home runs and lasted just five innings, but that was enough to get the win. Kenley Jansen pitched a perfect ninth to earn his 15th save.

The Cubs took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first on back-to-back solo homers from Lake and Rizzo.
