LOS ANGELES (AP) — Ricky Nolasco pitched eight innings of three-hit ball, Hanley Ramirez and Andre Ethier hit solo homers and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Chicago Cubs 4-0 on Wednesday.

The first-place Dodgers earned their 21st victory in August, tying the Los Angeles record for most wins in a calendar month. They avoided a second straight series loss by taking two of three from the last-place Cubs.

Nolasco (11-9) struck out a season high-tying 11 and won his sixth straight start. Edwin Jackson (7-14) took the loss.

Dodgers rookie Yasiel Puig left after four innings with no immediate explanation. He didn’t slide into second base to try to break up a double play in the first inning and visibly reacted after striking out in the third.
