LOS ANGELES -- Travis Wood outpitched Clayton Kershaw in a matchup of All-Star lefties, and Dioner Navarro and Starlin Castro had run-scoring singles to help the Chicago Cubs beat the Dodgers 3-2 Tuesday night, snapping an eight-game skid against first-place Los Angeles.

After losing 6-2 against Zack Greinke in the series opener, the Cubs caught Kershaw on a decidedly off-night for the ace who came in with a major league-leading 1.72 ERA. Kershaw's streak of 18 scoreless innings, dating to Aug. 17, ended in the third when the Cubs took a 1-0 lead.

Wood (8-10) allowed one unearned run and five hits in seven innings. He struck out six and walked two for his first victory since July 28 at San Francisco.

Kevin Gregg pitched the ninth to earn his 27th save in 32 chances.
