Los Angeles Dodgers continued their impressive road streak as they defeated the Chicago Cubs 1-0, stretching the franchise record to 14 wins.
The win streak on the road is now the longest in the National League for 56 years, and the latest victory owed much to the pitching of Stephen Fife who recorded 5 1/3 scoreless innings against the Cubs.
Despite the win - the Dodgers will be sweating over injuries to Hanley Ramirez, who left with his right arm in a sling and Matt Kemp, who left nursing an injury to his left ankle.
Ramirez fell awkwardly into the stands after catching a pop-up in innings number seven, and will have a scan today to determine the extent of the injury.
Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis scored the only run of the game, and explained how the team seem to thrive as the underdogs when playing away from their home crowd.
"We feel with our team on the road that we're underdogs. It's 25 guys versus the whole stadium to beat. On the road we seem to come together well," said Ellis.
LA travel to St. Louis to take on the Cardinals in their next fixture later today as they look to extend their winning streak.
