Grady 1, Lou 0

Grady sent Ethier to hit for Andy LaRoche leading off the bottom of the eighth. Piniella countered with lefty Scott Eyre because Ethier hits left-handed. Ethier countered with a game-tying homer, the first pinch-hit jack this year by any Dodger not named Wilson Betemit. Also, Russell Martin made a spectacular catch of a foul pop by Matt Murton in the seventh, falling into the below-ground-level front row of the dugout-club seats and still holding onto the ball. Cubs 1, Dodgers 1, bottom 8
