8/3 Dodgers 3, Cubs 0

Saturday’s game

Jeff Samardzija lost his 10th game a 3-0 loss to the Dodgers. Samardzija struck out nine and notched a quality start but it wasn’t enough. He has received zero runs of support in his last two starts. The right-hander is 2-5 with a 4.86 ERA in 12 home games.

* Junior Lake was batting .538 in the first three games of the series.

* The Cubs grounded into a season-high tying four double plays.

* The Cubs were shut out for the seventh time this season and fell to 1-6 in the first seven games of this eight-game homestand.

* Luis Valbuena was headed to the DL with a right oblique strain.

* With the win, the Dodgers set a franchise record with their 13th-consecutive road victory, joining the 1976 Philadelphia Phillies (April 17-June 2, 1976) as the only NL teams in the last 56 years to win 13-straight road contests
