CHICAGO — Scott Kazmir and two relievers combined on a one-hitter, matching zeros with Cubs ace Jake Arrieta before the Los Angeles Dodgers got to Chicago’s bullpen for a 5-0 victory Tuesday night.

Arrieta went seven scoreless innings, but was denied his 21st consecutive victory. The Cubs had won in Arrieta’s last 23 starts.

Cubs left-hander Clayton Richard (0-1) gave up three straight singles to lefties in the eighth, the last Adrian Gonzalez’s liner to left that scored Chase Utley and ended the Dodgers’ 16-inning scoreless streak.

Corey Seager hit a three-run homer off Trevor Cahill in the ninth.

Kazmir allowed a single and a walk with seven strikeouts in six innings. Adam Liberatore struck out one in a perfect ninth.

MARLINS 7, PIRATES 1: Jose Fernandez pitched seven scoreless innings to help Miami beat Gerrit Cole and visiting Pittsburgh.

Christian Yelich had a tie-breaking RBI single in the seventh, J.T. Realmuto had three hits for the Marlins and A.J. Ramos pitched a shaky ninth for his 16th save.

NATIONALS 5, PHILLIES 1: Daniel Murphy hit one of four Washington home runs, Joe Ross allowed three hits in seven innings and the visiting Nationals won their third straight.
