LOS ANGELES -- Corey Seager has become an NL MVP Award candidate as a rookie with timely homers and a big batting average.He made himself the difference in a game Sunday just by running hard to second base.Brock Stewart and four relievers combined on a four-hitter and Andrew Toles scored on a fielders choice in the eighth inning thanks to Seagers hustle, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers over Jon Lester and the Chicago Cubs 1-0.With one out in the eighth, pinch-hitter Toles was hit by a pitch, and then Trevor Cahill (3-4) threw away Howie Kendricks short roller, allowing Toles to reach third.After an intentional walk to Seager and a strikeout, Adrian Gonzalez hit a soft grounder to the left side, away from the shifted Cubs defense. Javier Baez stumbled backward to field it and made a casual throw to late-arriving second baseman Ben Zobrist. Umpires ruled a sliding Seager beat Zobrist to the bag, allowing Toles to score, and a review upheld the call.As soon as I saw him (Baez) throw to second I knew I had a chance of being safe, Seager said. Fortunately, it worked out for us.Seagers right foot slid into the base with Zobrists left foot barely inches from coming down on the bag.I didnt expect to be late on the play, but we didnt communicate on the play, Baez said. (Seager) beat the throw. Next time, I will be better and will be in my spot.We made a mental mistake at second and it costs us, Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. (Javier Baez is) a young player but he has as much instinct for this game as anyone Ive ever seen. Im not going to beat up my guys.The Dodgers took two of three from the Cubs over the weekend and maintained a two-game lead over the San Francisco Giants in the NL West.Stewart struck out eight over five innings of two-hit ball, and then Jesse Chavez, Grant Dayton, Joe Blanton and Kenley Jansen closed up shop. Blanton (5-2) got the win and Jansen got three outs for his 39th save.Were very excited for Brock, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. We believe in Brock. He was throwing his fastball, slider and change pitches with conviction.Stewart began the season with Class A Rancho Cucamonga and was making just this third big league start. He struck out eight of the first 12 batters to set a career high and struck out six in a row during one stretch.He also got his first major league hit with a single in the third off Lester. He was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the fifth after throwing 80 pitches.I could have thrown more, but it is not my decision, he said. And we got the win and that is all that matters.Lester struck out six and pitched three-hit ball over six innings, and the Cubs also four-hit the Dodgers.I felt efficient early in the game but in the fifth and sixth innings they ran deep counts and made me work, Lester.Kendrick walked to lead off the first and reached third on an errant pickoff attempt by catcher David Ross, but Lester struck out Seager, Justin Turner and Gonzalez successively to end the threat.DISASTER AVERTEDSeager and second baseman Charlie Culberson bumped into each other and nearly dropped a pop-up by Addison Russell in the eighth inning. Both players called for the ball beyond second base, and Seager got his glove on it first but was brushed by Culberson. The ball popped out of Seagers glove and hit off Culbersons mitt before Seager barehanded it for the third out.TRAINERS ROOMCubs: RHP John Lackey (right shoulder strain) will throw a bullpen session Monday at home, and manager Joe Maddon said Lackey is scheduled to throw a second bullpen session during Chicagos homestand before a decision is made about when he will be activated.Dodgers: OF Andre Ethier (broken right tibia) went 0 for 3 and played four innings in right field for Rancho Cucamonga on Saturday night in his second rehab game. Hes been out since spring training. ... Louis Coleman (right shoulder fatigue) is on rehab assignment with Triple-A Oklahoma City and has tossed scoreless innings in three rehab games there and with the rookie-level Arizona League Dodgers.ROAD WARRIORSEntering this game, the Cubs (37-27) were one of two NL teams at least 10 games over .500 on the road. The St. Louis Cardinals were the other (38-24).UP NEXTCubs: RHP Jake Arrieta (16-5, 2.62) will open a seven-game homestand Monday against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Last time out, Arrieta gave up two hits in eight scoreless innings to earn his league-leading 16th victory against the San Diego Padres.Dodgers: RHP Kenta Maeda (13-7, 3.37) will start at Colorado on Monday.

Kurtley Beales return to action will be well worth the wait and could come in Sundays Champions Cup tie against Connacht, according to Wasps director of rugby Dai Young.The Australia utility back, who has been capped 60 times by the Wallabies, agreed a switch to England from the Waratahs in a deal said to be worth some £700,000 per season as one of Wasps marquee players, only to suffer a serious knee injury.It has been a long road back to fitness for the 27-year-old, but Young revealed his recovery from the potentially season-ending patella tendon problem was almost complete.Young is excited by the prospect of Beales impact in both the domestic Aviva Premiership and European campaigns.First of all, Kurtley is really excited. It is difficult for him as you can imagine, he told PA Sport. There was a lot of fanfare about us signing him and then unfortunately he got injured, which was then surrounded by questions of was it going to be a three-month, six-month or nine-month injury?Coming to a new club at the other end of the world pretty much injured has been difficult for Kurtley really, and it is a long rehab process.In fairness to him, he has got his head down and worked his socks off.Young continued: Kurtley is really excited about getting involved. He has got a couple of sessions to get through yet [this week], but we are pretty confident that he will have some involvement on the weekend.If he is looking extremely confident with eveerything, then we will probably start him, otherwise we will put him on the bench.dddddddddddd That is hoping he does not get any reaction through training, but at the moment he is not having any of that so fingers crossed he will be available.Young believes Kurtley will certainly bring something different to Wasps dynamic.He is a world-class player, without a shadow of a doubt, he said.It will probably take him a little bit of time to settle into our patterns and get his sharpeness back, but some of the touches he has done in training already, there is no denying the quality he possesses.Wasps have been blighted by injury this season, but still sit just a point behind Saracens in the Premiership and are also second in Champions Cup Pool 2 as they prepare to take on leaders Connacht at the Ricoh Arena in the first of back-to-back European games.Young reports the likes of fly-half Jimmy Gopperth, wing Christian Wade and prop Jake Cooper-Woolley are all positive ahead of the weekend, but Danny Cipriani, centre Kyle Eastmond and lock Matt Symons remain doubtful.Hopefully we will get a couple back, but we wont get the full contingent, he said.It has been a difficult period, but every team has it and you just have to get on with it.I think we are through the woods now with more guys coming back than going out.
