Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error LOS ANGELES >> You don’t spend most of a century as ‘lovable losers’ and completely forget how that works.The Chicago Cubs cracked first in a scoreless game, bungling the day’s only run into the Dodgers’ laps in an eighth inning that featured no hits and only two balls put in play by Dodgers hitters. That run gave the Dodgers a 1-0 victory Sunday afternoon.The win (the Dodgers’ second 1-0 win in the past five games) gave the Dodgers two of three in the series against the team with the best record in baseball — and a sweep was only a wild pitch away. The Cubs won Friday night in extra innings after an errant cut fastball from Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen led to a blown save.“Couple miscues in that inning … fortunately we took advantage of them,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said of the decisive eighth inning. Sunday’s game was scoreless into the bottom of the eighth inning when Cubs reliever Trevor Cahill hit pinch hitter Andrew Toles with a pitch. That put the go-ahead run on base with one out.Cahill compounded his mistake with an even bigger one. Howie Kendrick chopped a ball into the grass to the left of the pitcher’s mound. With Kendrick running hard down the first-base line, Cahill fielded it and rushed his throw to first base, sending it into right field. That allowed Toles to go to third and Kendrick to second.After an intentional walk of Corey Seager loaded the bases, reliever Carl Edwards Jr. replaced Cahill and struck out Justin Turner. With two outs and the bases loaded, the Cubs were shifted to the right side for Adrian Gonzalez. He hit a ground ball to the shortstop spot where third baseman Javier Baez was playing.It should have ended the inning. But instead of throwing to first to get the slow-footed Gonzalez, Baez surprised second baseman Ben Zobrist by going to second for the force out.“I completely forgot about who was running down the line,” Baez told reporters after the game.Zobrist had been playing on the outfield grass against Gonzalez and was late getting to the base. Seager’s foot beat him to the base by a hair. Seager was safe (a call confirmed by replay review), allowing Toles to score the only run of the day in an inning that featured no hits and only two balls put in play.“It’s one of those plays where you see Chase (Utley) run hard every time so that’s what you do,” Seager said. “You see him do that over and over again – it rubs off.“Jansen closed out the combined four-hit shutout that began with rookie right-hander Brock Stewart pitching five scoreless innings.Stewart came into the game with an 0-2 record and 11.25 ERA after two previous starts (and a relief appearance) did not go very well. But he was terrific against the Cubs. He retired 12 of the first 14 batters, eight on strikeouts (including six consecutive batters at one point), and held the Cubs scoreless on two hits and two walks while striking out eight in his five innings.“I thought it was a playoff atmosphere,” Stewart said from the perspective of his four big-league appearances. “I don’t really know any better. But it felt like it.” “When you start playing very good teams, you have to take advantage of every opportunity. The other night, they took advantage of a miscue with us and they won that game. We knew we matched up well with that club and we played them toe to toe.”Believing they matched up well with the Cubs heading into this weekend must have been a theoretical exercise on the Dodgers’ part. They lost three of four to the Cubs in Wrigley Field back at the end of May and beginning of June.Things have changed since then, seeds planted by the first-year manager and changes in the roster beginning to show fruit now in the type of plays that decided Sunday’s game.“Completely different,” Roberts said, comparing the Dodgers of early June to the current group. “I don’t know who was on our roster then. It doesn’t really matter. But I know the way our guys have come together. It’s completely different. The focus, the attention to detail – completely different club.”
