LOS ANGELES -- A quick look at the Chicago Cubs' 5-2 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday night.

The good: Alfonso Soriano hit his major league high 11th home run. Feisty Reed Johnson had two more hits in four at-bats.

The bad: Left-handed starter James Russell couldn't get out of the fifth inning, dropping his fourth straight start.

Beyond the box score: Todd Wellemeyer will start at Triple-A Iowa on Thursday and veteran Doug Davis will start for Single-A Daytona on Wednesday. Andrew Cashner and Randy Wells threw off the mound for the first time since April 4 and 5.

Up next: Ryan Dempster (1-3) faces Chad Billingsley (2-1)

Quote of the night: Comedian Jeff Garlin on his beloved Cubs team after Monday's loss. "This year's team is a big bowl of nothing."
