|Dodgers Beat Cubs Behind Martin, Billingsley
|LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Russell Martin hit a three-run homer, All-Star Andre Ethier had a pair of RBI singles and Casey Blake drove in two runs, helping the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Chicago Cubs 9-7 Friday night.
The Dodgers have won eight of 11, and they finally broke out some offense against the Cubs, who have lost the first two games of this series. Neither team had scored more than three runs in any of the previous four games between them at Dodger Stadium.
Chad Billingsley (7-4) won his third in a row, allowing four runs and seven hits in seven-plus innings. He struck out nine and walked four.
