Homers back Haeger
Photos
Dodgers 2, Cubs 0
Matt Kemp watches his home run in the second inning. (Jon SooHoo/Dodgers)
Rookie Charlie Haeger blanked the Cubs into the eighth inning, using his dancing knuckleball to strike out seven and earn his first win for the Dodgers. He got all the offensive support he would need in the form of homers from Matt Kemp (18th of the season) and Casey Blake (15th).
