Uribe Leads Streaking Dodgers Past Cubs
CHICAGO (AP) -- Juan Uribe hit a two-run homer, Andre Ethier extended his major league-best hitting streak to 19 games and the surging Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Chicago Cubs 12-2 Friday.

Uribe also had a run-scoring single in the Dodgers' six-run third inning and a sacrifice fly in the sixth, giving him nine RBIs in his last three games and 12 this year. Pinch-hitter Marcus Thames added a two-run drive in the ninth as Los Angeles set a season high for runs and hits (14).

Chad Billingsley (2-1) made the most of all that run support, pitching into the seventh in his second straight solid start. He also capped Los Angeles' biggest inning of the year with an RBI single for his first hit in 2011.
