LOS ANGELES, May 4 (UPI) -- Geovany Soto smacked a two-run double in the top of the ninth inning Tuesday to pace the Chicago Cubs to a 4-1 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Andre Ethier extended his hitting streak to 29 games with a fourth-inning single but the Dodgers were held to six hits by Cubs starter Rick Dempster and relievers Kerry Wood (1-1) and Carlos Marmol, who notched his eighth save.
Jonathan Broxton (1-2) took the loss, giving up two runs on no hits and two walks in 1/3 of an inning.
Broxton started the ninth with the score tied 1-1. He gave up back-to-back walks with one out and was pulled in favor of Blake Hawksworth, who served up Soto's double and an insurance RBI single to Blake DeWitt.
The Dodgers had scored first on Matt Kemp's RBI single in the sixth, but the Cubs tied it in the seventh on a solo home run by Carlos Pena.
Los Angeles has lost three of its last four games.
