Andre the Giant rescues LA
Ethier huge in a pinch
With the Dodgers trailing by one in the ninth, Andre Ethier hit a three-run pinch-hit homer to send L.A. to a four-game series win over the Cubs. James Loney also homered and doubled home Russell Martin and his sprained left knee from first, as the Dodgers pulled within 3 1/2 games in the West and 2 1/2 in the Wild Card.

Series at a glance:
Cubs suffer crushing loss
Alfonso Soriano led off with a home run and added a three-run go-ahead blast in the seventh, but disaster loomed. After Jason Marquis had retired the first 14 batters he faced and exited after seven, Ryan Dempster allowed four runs in the ninth that saw the Cubs fall into a first-place tie with idle Milwaukee.
