CHICAGO (AP) — The Los Angeles Dodgers sent Clayton Kershaw and Trevor Bauer to the mound, hoping two of baseball's best pitchers would put the brakes on this recent skid. Instead, they came away with two more losses.

Kershaw lasted one inning in the shortest start of his stellar career, Bauer didn't get through the fifth in the nightcap, and the Chicago Cubs beat the Dodgers 7-1 and 4-3 Tuesday to sweep a day-night doubleheader.
