The Cubs lost 9-4 to the Dodgers behind 4 home runs including two, three run home runs off starter Jon Lester. The visitors hit three themselves, all off Clayton Kershaw but they failed to get the big hit when they needed it most. Javier Baez and Kris Bryant both struck out in the 5th inning with two on in a 6-4 game AFTER the Cubs had chased Kershaw. That was the difference as LA extended the lead in the late innings. The Cubs have been swept in a series 3 times this year already, that's one more time than all of last season.
