Dodgers News: Brock Stewart Struggles in Loss to Cubs

After a 5-1 start, the Dodgers have dropped three straight in blowout fashion.

Luckily for them, it’s spring training.

Brock Stewart gave up five earned runs in the 4th as L.A. fell to the Cubs 9-3 on Saturday. Kenta Maeda made the start, allowing two runs in two innings.

In a 2-2 tie, Stewart walked in a run before surrendering a grand slam to 2016 NL MVP Kris Bryant. It certainly wasn’t the appearance Stewart wanted as he competes for a spot in the rotation.

On the positive end for Los Angeles, Andre Ethier’s 4th inning single turned into a run via Chase Utley’s double. Utley had two RBI on the day, while Joc Pederson addded another.

Julio Urias starts for the Dodgers Sunday against Seattle. It will be his second appearance of the season.
