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.
