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.

Jesse Rogers ESPN Staff Writer 

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.

Ben Zobrist tied his career high with a hit in his 16th consecutive game while earlier reaching base with a walk making it 35 straight starts he's gotten on. He scored the first run of the game as the Cubs lead the Dodgers 1-0 in the 5th.

Cubs say Jason Hammel left Monday's game against the Dodgers because of cramping in his right hamstring. He's being evaluated.

Jesse Rogers ESPN Staff Writer 

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.
