Sean Marshall Gets The W, Colvin Has The Winning RBI

Chicago, IL (Sports Network) – Tyler Colvin’s run-scoring double in the bottom of the eighth inning proved to be the only offense, as the Chicago Cubs edged the Los Angeles Dodgers, 1-0, in the rubber match of a three-game series at Wrigley Field.

Mike Fontenot, who replaced injured third baseman Jeff Baker, tripled to start the eighth and scored on Colvin’s two-bagger for Chicago, which has won four of its last five and have lost only three times in the last 11 games overall.

Ted Lilly worked seven solid innings but did not factor in the decision. The veteran left-hander scattered three hits, issued three walks and fanned five. Sean Marshall (5-1) picked up the win with a scoreless eighth. Carlos Marmol locked the game down in the ninth to record his 11th save of the season.

Back To Back Extra Base Hits Give Cubs The Lead In The 8th

Mike Fontenot, who replaced Jeff Baker at third base, led off the bottom of the eighth inning with a triple down the right field line. The hit normally would have gone for only a double, but Xavier Paul, the Dodgers right fielder, had trouble with the side wall at Wrigley. Paul lost his glove and the ball when he took a bad angle and slammed into the wall in pursuit of Fontenot’s hit.

One batter later, Fontenot scored as Tyler Colvin lined his own hit down the right field line. James Loney deflected the ball into foul territory, where Xavier Paul once again crashed into the side wall in hot pursuit. Paul’s second incident was ruled an error, and Colvin was credited with a RBI double.

The Cubs have two out and a runner on third in the bottom of the eighth. They lead 1-0 as Jeff Weaver replaces starting pitcher John Ely.
