LOS ANGELES (AP) — Kyle Hendricks scattered four hits over seven innings, Starlin Castro had three hits and scored three runs, and the Chicago Cubs beat Los Angeles 8-2 on Friday night, snapping the Dodgers' six-game winning streak.

Making his fourth major league start after being called up from Triple-A, Hendricks (2-1) allowed one earned run, struck out three and walked one in his return to Dodger Stadium, where he pitched in high school. The rookie had two of Chicago's 13 hits.

Ryan Sweeney had two hits and scored twice, and Luis Valbuena homered and drove in two runs for the last-place Cubs, who have won four of their last five.

Dan Haren's woes followed him into a new month. He is in the midst of a career-worst five-game skid, having lost all four of his starts in July. The right-hander (8-9) gave up seven runs — six earned — and eight hits in 4 1-3 innings, struck out three and walked two.
