Dodgers vs Cubs: Cubs-Dodgers Game: Cubs a 2-1 win over the Dodgers

The Dodgers and Cubs play the second game of a split doubleheader. Rich Hill will make his first start since he tried to start Game 2 of the Dodgers last doubleheader, May 19 in Washington. Lefty Mike Montgomery will be on the mound for the Cubs.

Kyle Schwarber hit his 13th home run in the seventh inning, and Kris Bryant’s leadoff triple in the 10th set up a single by Albert Almora Jr. to give the Cubs a 2-1 win over the Dodgers in the second game of a split doubleheader Tuesday night.

Left-hander Rich Hill held the Cubs to three hits over six innings in his first start since coming off the 10-day disabled list.

Cubs starter Mike Montgomery limited the Dodgers to five hits in six innings. But Montgomery issued four walks, including a free pass to Cody Bellinger that set up an RBI single by Austin Barnes in the sixth.

Montgomery threw 100 pitches as his ERA in five starts is 1.21.

The Cubs added reliever Justin Hancock as the 26th player for the second game.

Javier Baez made his first start since getting hit on the left elbow by a pitch in Sunday’s 5-0 loss to the Cardinals. Baez drew an intentional walk prior to Almora’s game-winning hit.
