Chicago 1, Dodgers 0 ( 10 in­nings)

Los Angeles Times - - BASEBALL - — Dy­lan Her­nan­dez

KEY MO­MENT: Man­ager Don Mat­tingly waited un­til the Cubs loaded the bases with no outs in the 10th in­ning to in­sert closer Ken­ley Jansen into the game. Pre­dictably, the move turned out to be too late. Jansen got Ad­di­son Rus­sell to ground into a force­out that pre­vented Mike Bax­ter from scor­ing a walk- off run from third base, only to give up a sac­ri­fice fly to the next bat­ter, Chris Denor­fia. Jansen in­her­ited the three baserun­ners from Joel Peralta, who hadn’t pitched since April 23 be­cause of nerve- re­lated prob­lems. Peralta was ac­ti­vated Mon­day from the dis­abled list.

AT THE PLATE: The Dodgers were lim­ited to three hits, in­clud­ing a fly ball by Yasiel Puig that was lost in the lights by the out­field­ers and was recorded as a triple. Cal­laspo had a dou­ble in the third in­ning. The Dodgers’ only other hit was a two- out sin­gle by Adrian Gon­za­lez in the ninth in­ning.

ON THE MOUND: Zack Greinke pitched six in­nings, but his per­sonal win­less streak reached nine starts. Greinke gave up only three hits. He walked two and struck out five. Juan Ni­ca­sio, Adam Lib­er­a­tore and Yimi Gar­cia each pitched an in­ning of re­lief to send the game into ex­tra in­nings.

EX­TRA BASES: Hec­tor Oliv­era’s as­cen­sion to the ma­jor leagues could be de­layed, as the $ 62.5- mil­lion in­fielder is on triple- A Ok­la­homa City’s seven- day dis­abled list and in Ari­zona re­ha­bil­i­tat­ing a strained left ham­string. Mat­tingly de­scribed Oliv­era’s ham­string in­jury as mild, say­ing the Cuban was di­ag­nosed with a Grade 1 strain. Mat­tingly was not cer­tain when Oliv­era could re­sume play­ing games. Oliv­era last played Satur­day. He is bat­ting .387 with one home run and one run bat­ted in in seven games. Be­fore the 30- year- old Oliv­era was pro­moted to triple A, he played in six games for dou­ble- A Tulsa, where he bat­ted .318 with a home run and six RBIs. … Joc Ped­er­son ranks sixth among Na­tional League out­field­ers in All- Star bal­lot­ing, which is two places higher than he was last week. Gon­za­lez re­mains sec­ond among NL first base­men.

UP NEXT: Mike Bolsinger ( 4- 2, 2.87 ERA) will face the Cubs and Kyle Hen­dricks ( 2- 3, 4.28) on Wed­nes­day at 5 p. m. PDT at Wrigley Field. TV: ESPN2, Sport­sNet LA; Ra­dio: 570, 1020.
