Cubs hold off Dodgers
Los Angeles, CA (Sports Network) - Travis Wood worked seven strong innings to guide the Chicago Cubs to a 3-2 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers in the second of a three-game set at Chavez Ravine.
Wood (8-10) allowed one unearned run on five hits and two walks while striking out six to earn his first win of the month. The southpaw had dropped his last three decisions.
Dioner Navarro went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored against his former club and Starlin Castro added two hits and an RBI for the Cubs, who had dropped eight of their last 10 games entering the contest.
Navarro spent parts of three seasons with LA (2005-06, 2011).
Kevin Gregg put the tying-run on base in the ninth, but got rookie sensation Yasiel Puig to pop out to end the game. It was Gregg's 27th save of the season.
Clayton Kershaw (13-8) was pegged with the loss after giving up two runs -- one earned -- on seven hits while striking out nine over 5 2/3 innings.
Andre Ethier and Juan Uribe each drove in a run for the Dodgers, who have dropped three of their last four games.
