LOS ANGELES-Things started off the right way for the Los Angeles Dodgers in the first of a three-game series against the Chicago Cubs at Dodger Stadium. They ended on the wrong foot by the time the contest between the two teams had ended.
Thanks to the power smash play of third baseman Kris Bryant, the Chicago Cubs rallied from a 4-2 deficit to come away with a 6-4 win Friday, Aug. 26. Pitcher Bud Norris looked pretty good through the early innings for the Dodgers, going for six strikeouts in five innings.
The Dodgers roughed up Cubs pitcher Mike Montgomery for four runs, but could not finished the game off with a win, giving Chicago their 82nd win of the season. Despite Adrian Gonzales’ 16th home run of the season, Bryant’s 34th and 35th home runs of the year, the last coming in the top of the 10th inning, closed the deal for the Cubs in Game 1.
