The Cubs believe pitcher Jason Hammel will be fine for his next start after leaving Monday's 2-0 win over the Dodgers with cramping in his right leg.

Five different Cubs pitchers retired the final 25 Dodgers in their 2-0 win on Monday. The Dodgers managed a 2-out bloop followed by a walk in the first inning and that's all the base runners they would see. Travis Wood was the hero throwing 4 perfect innings coming in cold off the bench.

Jason Hammel left Monday's game against the Dodgers before the start of the third inning after experiencing what looked like a right leg injury, perhaps a cramp. He tried throwing with trainers looking on but left in favor of Travis Wood. It's 0-0 in the 3rd.
