CHICAGO -- Anthony Rizzo and Addison Russell each hit solo homers while Brett Anderson scattered three hits over five innings as the Chicago Cubs beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-0 in Thursday afternoon's series finale.
The Wrigley Field victory was the Cubs' second in three games against the Dodgers and gave them their third straight series triumph.
Anderson (1-0) worked five shutout innings in his second start and home debut. He struck out two and walked four.
Chicago (6-3) has won four of its last five. Los Angeles (5-5) has dropped four of its last six.
Rizzo opened a 1-0 lead with his first homer of the season, a blast into the right-field bleachers on left-handed starter Hyun-Jin Ryu's 2-1 pitch with two gone in the first inning. It was his first regular-season homer since Sept. 28, 2016 against the Pirates.
The Dodgers threatened with runners on second and third with two out the fourth, but Anderson preserved the shutout by coaxing Trayce Thompson into an inning-ending grounder to Russell at shortstop.
Russell then doubled the Cubs' lead in the bottom of the inning, sending Ryu's 2-0 pitch out of the park onto Waveland Ave. for his first homer of the season and a 2-0 edge.
Anderson faced bases loaded with two out in the fifth after walking Ryu and Justin Turner and giving up a single to Corey Seager. But the threat ended when Yasiel Puig popped out in foul territory near first base.
Rizzo, who went 2-for-4 with two RBIs, singled in Jay for a 4-0 lead. Schwarber's bid to score was denied on a throw from left fielder Enrique Hernandez to catcher Yasmani Grandal, who tagged Schwarber.
Ryu (0-2) departed after that for reliever Josh Fields. Ryu worked 4 2/3 innings and allowed four earned runs on six hits, struck out two and walked five.
Ryu made his second start of the season and just his third since 2014 after sitting out 2015 and part of 2016 following left shoulder surgery. He went back on the disabled list last July with elbow tendonitis and did not return.
