|Loney Leads Dodgers Past Cubs
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Chad Billingsley won his fourth consecutive start and James Loney had three hits as the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Chicago Cubs 8-5 Wednesday night.
Loney was a home run short of the cycle and Casey Blake homered and drove in two runs for the Dodgers, who won for 15th time in 21 games.
Jonathan Broxton got five outs for his 11th save in 13 opportunities.
The game was delayed for 18 minutes in top of the fourth inning after a nearby fire caused the lights to go out at Wrigley Field.
Billingsley (6-2) allowed three runs and a season-high 10 hits, struck out six and walked one. He threw 100 pitches on a humid Chicago night.
Xavier Nady hit a pinch-hit homer for the Cubs, who committed three errors and had a three-game winning streak snapped.
