Dempster dinged

Giants 4, Cubs 2
Ryan Dempster regroups after giving up a two-run single in the third. (Nam Y. Huh/AP)
All-Star Ryan Dempster hadn't lost a game at Wrigley Field all year, but the three runs he allowed in the third inning put the Cubs in a hole they never escaped despite a ninth-inning rally in which All-Star Geovany Soto drove in a run. Jim Edmonds doubled home the other Cubs tally.
