Julio Urías had his shortest start in eight months and the Cubs feasted off him and the Dodgers bullpen. But left-hander Drew Smyly took a perfect game into the eighth in the Cubs’ blowout win.
The Dodgers placed Michael Grove on the injured list with a right groin strain, and called up Jake Reed from Triple-A Oklahoma City. Ryan Pepiot was moved to the 60-day injured list with his oblique strain.
The Dodgers and Cubs play a four-game series at Wrigley Field in Chicago beginning Thursday night, the second weekend series in a row between these two teams.
