Dodgers go to the bottom of ninth inning with a 1-0 lead over the Cubs

TOP OF NINTH: Dodgers 1, Cubs 0

Joc Pederson led off against Aroldis Chapman with a walk and stole second base. Yasmani Grandal bunted him to third, so the Dodgers needed only a ball reasonably deep in the outfield to score an insurance run.

They did not produce one. Enrique Hernandez flew out to shallow center field and Yasiel Puig popped out to Chapman.

Kenley Jansen will have little room for error in his second inning of work, the Dodgers still leading 1-0.
