Error costs Cubs
Photos
Dodgers 2, Cubs 1
Ryan Theriot tries unsuccessfully to steal second after his RBI single in the third. (AP)
Randy Wells nearly matched Randy Wolf pitch for pitch, but he allowed a two-run double to Wolf in the second inning after Aramis Ramirez's error with two outs. Wells took the loss as the Cubs were held to one hit -- an RBI single by Ryan Theriot in the third after a walk by Sam Fuld.
