Cubs Vs. Dodgers Final Score: LA Defeats Chicago, 7-6

The Cubs gave the Dodgers all they could handle on Sunday but still couldn't quite come away with the victory, as Los Angeles defeated Chicago 7-6 in the series finale.

Anthony Rizzo plated half of the Cubs' runs in this one, going 2-for-4 with three RBIs. Rizzo had an RBI single in the first inning for the first score of the game. Then he hit a sacrifice fly in the seventh to kick off the scoring in Chicago's most productive inning. Rizzo's ninth inning solo home run gave the Cubs a chance at a comeback, but it wasn't enough.

There were four blown saves - a pair of relief pitchers from each team. Starter Justin Germano gave up two earned runs on three hits in 5 1/3 innings pitched.

For the Dodgers, Kenley Jansen picked up a blown save and the win for giving up the homer to Rizzo that tied the game before being bailed out by Hanley Ramirez's walk-off RBI single.
