55+ Cubs move to 3-0, with a 11-2 win over the Dodgers.

On a perfect Thursday night at the A-Diamond, the Cubs pounded out 15 hits and worked 5 walks in an 11-2 victory over the Dodgers.
The big inning came in the top of the 4th, with the Cubs holding a slim 2-1 advantage. The Cubs started of the inning with 6 consecutive hits,
plating 6 runs, to blow the game open. Ron Lochner singled to lead off the inning, and was followed by a Jerry Rosen single.
Dave Mitchell plated Lochner, with a RBI double. Jim Bonaparte followed with a RBI single, and Dan Hernandez followed suit. Alex Marin joined the
hit parade with a single, and two outs later Chris Dunn pitched in a RBI single.

The Cubs would add 3 more in the top of the 6th, on two walks, 3 wild pitches, a Dunn double, and a Mike Girard RBI single.
Jerry Rosen led the way with 3 singles in 4 at bats. Chris Dunn, Ron Lochner, Dave Mitchell, and Jim Bonaparte all added 2 hit each.

Meanwhile, Mike Girard limited a very potent Dodgers offense to just 2 runs on 9 hits and no walks, while striking out 3.
The Dodgers plated the first run of the game in the bottom of the 2nd inning on three consecutive singles by Mark Callahan, Greg Gougler and Jim Bradley.
Their other run came in the bottom of the 4th, when Steve Jiampeti doubled down the left field line to lead off the inning; Harvey Staulters singled him to third; and
Marc Trinchillo plated him on a sacrifice fly. Harvey Staulters, Greg Gougler, and Jim Bradley all had two hits each for the Dodgers. Marc Trinchillo, Steve Jianpeti,
and Mark Callahan had the other hits for the Dodgers.

Next up for the Cubs is a game against the Pirates next Friday night at the B-Diamond.
Next up for the Dodgers is a game next Tuesday night vs the Twins at the A-Diamond.
