Late risers get sweep

Cubs 2, Dodgers 1
Kosuke Fukudome follows through on a single during the fourth inning. (Brian Kersey/AP)
Carlos Zambrano's herculean effort -- 130 pitches over eight innings -- kept the Cubs in the ballgame, and it paid off in a sweep of the Dodgers. Geovany Soto tied the score at 1 in the ninth on a sac fly, and Alfonso Soriano's single plated Mike Fontenot for the winner in the 10th.
