Cubs 7, Dodgers 0
Eric Stults reacts after being taken out in the fourth inning. (Nam Y. Huh/AP)
On a tear entering this series, the Dodgers were shut out for the first time all season and endured their worst loss of 2009 a day after scoring one run in the opener at Wrigley Field. Matt Kemp had two of Los Angeles' five hits, which wasn't enough to pick up southpaw Eric Stults, who lasted just three-plus innings of four-run ball.
