CHICAGO (AP) — Chris Denorfia hit a game-ending sacrifice fly in the 10th inning, and the Chicago Cubs beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 1-0 on Tuesday night for their fourth consecutive victory.

The Cubs loaded the bases with no outs in the 10th on two singles and a walk. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly then replaced Joel Peralta (1-1) with Kenley Jansen and brought the infield in.

Los Angeles got one out when Addison Russell bounced into a fielder’s choice, with first baseman Adrian Gonzalez juggling the ball before making a strong throw to the plate. But Denorfia followed with a line drive to center that Joc Pederson brought in on the run, giving him no chance of making a play.

Jason Motte (5-1) pitched a scoreless inning for the win, finishing a three-hitter for Jason Hammel and three relievers.
