Coghlan's homeun leads Cubs to 7-3 win over Dodgers

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Edwin Jackson pitched six innings for his first victory in six weeks and Chris Coghlan hit a tiebreaking two-run homer, leading the Chicago Cubs to a 7-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Sunday.

Jackson (6-11) allowed two runs and seven hits, struck out six and walked none. The right-hander was 0-4 with a 7.39 ERA in his previous seven starts since beating Pittsburgh 6-3 on June 20 at Wrigley Field.

The Dodgers dropped two of three to the team with the third-worst record in the majors. Los Angeles' NL West lead was trimmed to 2 1/2 games over San Francisco, which won 9-0 at the New York Mets.
