CHICAGO, May 5 (UPI) -- Chris Capuano hurled seven shutout innings and socked a two-run double Saturday, hoisting the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 5-1 win over the Chicago Cubs.

Capuano (4-0) won for the fourth time in six starts to begin the season, taming Chicago on three hits while walking two and striking out seven.

After Matt Treanor's sacrifice fly in the second inning broke a scoreless tie, the hurler followed by lacing a pitch into the right-center field gap, chasing home Bobby Abreu and James Loney for a 3-0 Dodgers lead.

Dee Gordon added two hits and an RBI double for the National League West-leading Dodgers, who evened their three-game series at Wrigley Field.

Cubs starter Chris Volstad (0-4) remained winless in 2012, surrendering all five Los Angeles runs on four hits in a five-inning effort.

Ian Stewart had an RBI single and Starlin Castro went 3-for-4 with a run scored for Chicago.
