Baker Lifts Cubs To Wild Victory Over Dodgers
CHICAGO (AP) — Jeff Baker hit a tiebreaking two-run double in the eighth inning and the Chicago Cubs got a banner day from the top of their lineup in a wild 10-8 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday.
Starlin Castro, Darwin Barney and Marlon Byrd combined for nine hits, six RBIs and four runs as Chicago roughed up Ted Lilly in his return to Wrigley Field. Castro tied a career high with four hits and Reed Johnson went 2 for 3 and scored twice.
The Dodgers scored seven unanswered runs to take an 8-5 lead before Chicago responded with a five-run eighth.
