Tyler Flowers added a solo homer and Abreu went 2-for-4 in his
second game since coming off the disabled list. Noesi (1-4) yielded
one run on five hits and four walks to win for the first time since
May 6, 2012, and Ronald Belisario worked a perfect ninth against his
former team for his fourth save.
Yasiel Puig and Drew Butera had two hits apiece for the Dodgers, who
had their four-game interleague winning streak come to an end. Abreu
began the scoring with a two-run homer in the first off Dan Haren
(5-4), who allowed four runs over six innings and remained winless
in his last four starts.
Matt Kemp scored on Dee Gordonís sacrifice fly in the second, but
Chicago answered in the third as Adam Eaton drew a leadoff walk and
later scored on Abreuís fielderís choice. Flowers delivered a
two-out solo homer in the fourth off Haren, and Chicago held on to
win for the fifth time in its last eight games.
Los Angeles drew a total of seven walks, but was 0-for-7 with
runners in scoring position and left 12 men on base. The Dodgers had
runners on the corners with one out in the fourth before second
baseman Gordon Beckham made a diving catch on Harenís liner and
Gordon struck out to end the inning.
