Loney, Manny, Martin Power Dodgers Past Cubs

CHICAGO (AP) - Manny Ramirez and Joe Torre brought their winning postseason ways to the Los Angeles Dodgers - and Wrigley Field.

James Loney hit a go-ahead grand slam off a wild Ryan Dempster, Ramirez and Russell Martin homered and the new-look Dodgers beat the Chicago Cubs 7-2 in their NL playoff opener Wednesday night.

The Cubs entered the postseason with the best record in league, hoping for a fast start 100 years after their last World Series Championship.

But Ramirez and Torre, winners of six World Series crowns in the AL, wound up on top in their first playoff game together.
