There’s no stopping the red-hot Dodgers. They defeated the Cubs by the score of 6-2 at Wrigley Field yesterday afternoon to move 10 games over .500 for the first time this season.
Hyun-Jin Ryu matched a season-high by giving up 11 hits, but managed to escape with just two runs scoring over 5 2/3 innings. He’s now 10-3 with a 3.15 ERA in 21 starts. Making his return to Chicago, Carlos Marmol pitched a scoreless ninth inning to finish off the victory. Well, of course he did.
The first-place Dodgers have now won 12 consecutive road games, tying a franchise record from 1924. They’ll look to keep rolling this afternoon when Chris Capuano faces Jeff Samardzija.
