Kemp, Dodgers beat Cubs 8-5

CHICAGO (AP) -

Matt Kemp homered and had four RBIs, Yasiel Puig scored a career-high four times and the NL West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers used six pitchers to beat the Chicago Cubs 8-5 on Sunday.

Kemp had four hits for the Dodgers, who clinched a playoff berth on Friday and entered with a 3 1-2 game lead over the Giants in the NL West. Los Angeles pushed starter Dan Haren back a day so he could face San Francisco on Monday.

The Dodgers instead used the bullpen. Jamey Wright made his first start since Sept. 1, 2013, with the Rays, allowing a run and three hits in two innings.

Chris Perez (1-3) struck out two in 1 1-3 innings for his first victory since Aug. 14, 2013. And Kenley Jansen earned his 43rd save in 48 chances.
