Dodgers 7, Cubs 3

First two-game winning streak in more than two weeks. The boys rode another solid performance from Derek Lowe, who now has a 1.86 ERA over his past four starts, and a three-run homer by Matt Kemp that capped a five-run seventh. All the Dodgers’ offense came against Cubs ace Carlos Zambrano, who was touched for seven earned runs on 13 hits over 6 2/3 innings. Russell Martin also homered, a two-run shot, and drove in a third run with a single that put the Dodgers ahead to stay in the seventh. Saito struck out all three batters he faced in the ninth. Dodgers go to 30-32. Snakes play later at Pittsburgh.
