CHICAGO, Aug. 4 (UPI) -- Stephen Fife and three Los Angeles relievers combined on a shutout Sunday, lifting the Dodgers to a 1-0 win and a four-game sweep of the Chicago Cubs.

Chris Withrow and J.P. Howell teamed up for 2 2/3 scoreless relief innings and Kenley Jansen struck out the side in the ninth for his 17th save as the National League West-leading Dodgers reeled off their 31st win in 38 games.

A.J. Ellis provided the game's only run with a RBI single in the second inning.

Chicago's Carlos Villanueva (2-8) was saddled with the hard-luck loss, yielding just the one run on two hits over six innings. He walked three and struck out five.
