The Cubs rolled to their fifth straight win with a 2-1 win over the punchless Dodgers in LA. Carlos Zambrano pitched eight innings, struck out nine and allowed only one hit and one unearned run. The run scored only after Hee Seop Choi struck out on a pitch over his head, Hank White failed to catch it and Choi reached first base. Then Choi scored on a bloop double that should have been caught by Neifi Perez. It was LA’s only hit.
Hank did however drive in the only Cubs run in regulation with a grounder to third. So that’s something, right?
