CHICAGO (AP) - Justin Turner and Adrian Gonzalez homered, and the Los Angeles Dodgers snapped Chicago's four-game win streak with a 5-2 victory over the Cubs on Wednesday night.

Gonzalez connected for a leadoff drive in the second and Turner belted a three-run shot in the third, helping Los Angeles bounce back after it scored just two runs in the first two games of the four-game series. Joc Pederson added an RBI single in the eighth for the NL West leaders, who had lost four of five overall.

J.P. Howell (3-1) replaced Mike Bolsinger with two out in the fifth and pitched 1 1/3 scoreless innings for the win. Kenley Jansen got three outs for his 10th save in 11 chances.

Addison Russell had two hits and drove in a run for Chicago, which had won five of seven. The Cubs finished with nine hits, but left eight runners on base.
