Los Angeles Dodgers defeat Chicago Cubs 9-4: The Dodgers defeated the Cubs to complete the three-game series sweep over the defending World Series champions. Jon Lester struggled for the Cubs, giving up six runs in 3.1 innings. He is now 3-3 on the season with a 3.86 ERA. His ERA isn’t too bad, but his 3-3 record is surprising for a pitcher of his caliber. Clayton Kershaw also struggled, giving up four runs and eleven hits in 4.1 innings. He was not the pitcher of record for the Dodgers. Josh Fields came on in relief and got the victory. He pitched 1.2 scoreless innings without giving up a hit. All thirteen combined runs were scored via the long ball. In what was supposed to be a pitcher’s duel, this game was full of offense.
