Joe Maddon called chasing Alex Wood after 5 innings on Friday night "somewhat of a victory" but the Cubs couldn't breakthrough against the Dodgers bullpen in their 4-0 loss. Maddon also admitted it's possible starter Jake Arrieta's velocity dip could be leading to a higher home run total. He averaged 92.4 mph on Friday and gave up two long balls in the loss: "Maybe the velocity not at 95 might bleed into that (home runs) a little bit," Maddon said.

The Cubs lost to the Dodgers 4-0 behind another strong performance by Dodgers lefty Alex Wood. Meanwhile, Jake Arrieta continued a disturbing trend by giving up two more home runs. He's allowed ten this season, the same amount he gave up in all of 2015 and only 6 off his 2016 total. The Cubs had just two hits on the night, singles by Jason Heyward and Javier Baez.
