GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Dontrelle Willis left because of a shoulder injury just seven pitches into his latest comeback try, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the mistake-prone Chicago Cubs 7-6 Monday.
The 2003 NL Rookie of the Year signed a minor league contract with the Cubs in January. He walked Nick Evans on six pitches to open the eighth inning and then threw one pitch to the next batter before trainers went out to the mound.
Dodgers infielder Omar Luna had the go-ahead RBI in eighth.
The Dodgers trailed by four runs after three innings. The Cubs scored six runs off Dodger pitchers Chad Billingsley and Chris Capuano. Los Angeles scored three in the fifth, including two on Chicago balks.
