Dodgers Get Past Cubs
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Hanley Ramirez lined an RBI single over a drawn-in infield in the ninth inning, and Los Angeles Dodgers completed a three-game sweep of the Chicago Cubs with a seesaw 7-6 victory Sunday.

Shawn Camp (2-5) walked Matt Kemp on four pitches with one out and Andre Ethier's single put runners at the corners for Ramirez.

Cubs talented rookie Anthony Rizzo had three RBIs including a tying solo home run leading off the top of the ninth against Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen (5-3) after Ethier gave Los Angeles a 6-5 lead with a two-run double in the seventh against James Russell. The blown save was Jansen's sixth in 27 opportunities.

Alfonso Soriano put the Cubs ahead 5-4 in the seventh with a two-run single against Javy Guerra, who came in after Randy Choate gave up Rizzo's sacrifice fly.
