2-1. Timely batting of Dodgers spoil the return of star Jon Lester

 Chicago (USA), – The timely batting of the Los Angeles Dodgers embittered the return of starter Jon Lester to the Cubs’ rotation, scoring with an error and a sacrifice fly that allowed the Los Angeles team to play on Thursday. The National League won 2-1 at the Chicago Cubs and avoided the sweep in the series of three games they played at Wrigley Field.

Lester (1-1), who spent 16 days on the injured list with a strained left thigh, accepted a dirty run and four hits over five innings.

Right fielder Cody Bellinger produced the Dodgers’ second career with a high fly-by in front of Kyle Ryan in the eighth inning, after the bases were filled with two tickets and a pitch.
Bellinger reached the thirty-first race comeback and tied with the outfielder Christian Yelich, of the Milwaukee Brewers, the best mark in the Majors.

The Dodgers All-Star outfielder went 2-1 and raised his batting average to 4,226, the most outstanding of the majors.
Dominican reliever Pedro Báez (2-1) dealt three strikeouts in one inning and one third to take the win.

Curaçao closer Kenley Jansen accepted a home run by emerging Cuban Albert Almora Jr. in the ninth, but he took the last three outs to clinch his eighth save.

The Dodgers took the lead 1-0 in the fifth inning. The Mexican Alex Verdugo, who went 4-1 with scoring, opened with a triple to center field and Chris Taylor hit a routine shot, which Puerto Rican shortstop Javier Báez accidentally kicked, for an error. (EFE).
