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.
