Manager Joe Maddon shook the Cubs on Sunday against the left-footed Dodgers Hyun-Jin Ryu, but the offense was defeated on Sunday in a 3-2 loss to the Dodgers who moved 2-5.
The Cubs scored nine hits against Hyun-Jin Ryu and relievers Ross Stripling and Kenley Jansen, but the Dodgers produced faster shots as the Cubs (39-32) lost a game behind the Brewers in the National League.
The Cubs took advantage of the mistake of the third base player, Justin Turner, to score two points against Ryu in front of the sixth goal, but Cody Bellinger countered at the end of the run with a decisive pass by Jose Quintana.
In eighth place, Chris Taylor took a first step ahead of reliever Steve Cishek, starting his second run. Taylor is ranked second on a grounder.
Russell Martin followed with only one field left. Third baseman Dino Ebel wasted no time getting Taylor home, while left-field player Kris Bryant introduced the ball before Taylor reached the finish line. third rank.
But Ebel's decision paid off as Bryant's throw was off-line and passed receiver Willson Contreras for the long distance race.
The Cubs put equal points and wins in the leading position with a goal in the ninth, but Jansen pushed the hitter-pincher Victor Caratini to hit a scorer on the mound, which led to the defensive player's choice at home. And Javier Baez headed for the center of the field, where Alex Verdugo managed a plunge to finish the match.
For the first time this season, Baez beat Ryu, who brought his championship ERA to 1.26. Baez played 1 against 4 against Ryu, but was furious against the marble umpire, DJ Reyburn, on a third shot called to end seventh and stole his bat and his helmet.
Quintana pulled out the first two batters at the bottom of the first goal before allowing David Freese to be hit and to run three consecutive hitters to score Freese on the first pass.
