Hammel walks 5 in Cubs' 4-1 loss to Dodgers in series opener

LOS ANGELES (AP) Jason Hammel eagerly anticipated matching up against Clayton Kershaw. The Cubs' right-hander was holding his own through the first five innings while the Dodgers' ace was rolling through Chicago's lineup.

"Kershaw was locked in from the first pitch and I felt good too," Hammel said. "It had the feelings of a good pitchers' duel, but I was kind of the first one to blink."

He sure did in the sixth inning.
