Road Warriors: Dodgers Win Club Record 14th Straight on Road

Road Warriors: Dodgers Win Club Record 14th Straight on Road

(AP) Dodgers win 14th straight on road, top Cubs 1-0
CHICAGO
A.J. Ellis hit an RBI single, Stephen Fife pitched into the sixth inning in his return from the disabled list, and the Los Angeles Dodgers extended their franchise-record road winning streak to 14 games with a 1-0 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Sunday.

A day after rookie Yasiel Puig hurt his thumb trying to make a catch, another Dodgers star was hurt. Shortstop Hanley Ramirez exited the game in the seventh inning after he tumbled into the stands catching a fly ball. He held his right shoulder as he walked off the field.

The Dodgers haven’t lost on the road since July 6 in San Francisco.

The NL record for consecutive road wins is 17, accomplished by the New York Giants in 1916. The last team to win 14 straight road games was the Detroit Tigers in 1984.
