Cubs Vs. Dodgers Score Update: Chicago Offense Sputters In 5-1 Loss

After opening their series against the Los Angeles Dodgers with an impressive 5-4 win, the Chicago Cubs delivered a listless offensive performance and fell 5-1 at Wrigley Field. The Cubs had no answer for Chris Capuano, who threw seven shutout innings and struck out seven batters for the win.

Not only did Capuano dominate on the mound, he also delivered a key hit at the plate. Capuano drove in two runs on a double in the second inning to help peg the Dodgers to an early lead they wouldn't relinquish. On the mound, Capuano allowed only three hits and improved his record to 4-0 with a 2.21 ERA.

Chris Volstad saw his record drop to 0-4 after allowing five earned runs in five innings. Starlin Castro was the lone Cub to have success at the plate, as he delivered three hits and scored the lone run of the game for Chicago.
