BOTTOM OF SIXTH: DODGERS 4, CUBS 0

Justin Turner began the half-inning by smashing a home run to left-center, stretching the Dodgers lead to four runs and ending starter Jake Arrieta’s night.

Cubs Manager Joe Maddon brought in left-hander Travis Wood, and Adrian Gonzalez struck out. Yasiel Puig pinch-hit for Josh Reddick and singled in the infield. Next up, Joc Pederson popped out to third. Yasmani Grandal worked a walk.

When Howie Kendrick pinch-hit for Andrew Toles, Maddon removed Wood for right-hander Justin Grimm. He got Kendrick to ground out sharply to end the inning.

Right-hander Joe Blanton is going to relieve Hill for the top of the seventh.
