|Colvin's RBI All Lilly Needs, Cubs Top Dodgers
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Ted Lilly pitched seven scoreless innings, Tyler Colvin drove in the lone run with a double in the eighth, and the Chicago Cubs beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 1-0 on Thursday.
Mike Fontenot led off the eighth with a triple down the right field line and came around on Colvin's one-out double down the line, which chased tough luck loser John Ely (3-2) and sent the Cubs to their eighth win in 11 games. Both players had come on in the eighth for the Cubs, with Colvin going to left as part of a double switch in which Sean Marshall replaced Lilly.
Fontenot replaced Jeff Baker at third when he walked off the field with a vision problem in his right eye following a leadoff single by Russell Martin. Marshall (5-1) also gave up a one-out single to Matt Kemp, putting runners on first and second, before Casey Blake lined to first and James Loney grounded to second.
