Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images(CHICAGO) — The Los Angeles Dodgers extended their franchise-record road winning streak to 14 games by beating the Chicago Cubs, 1-0, Sunday.

Stephen Fife pitched 5 1/3 scoreless innings and A.J. Ellis’ RBI single in the second inning vaulted the NL West-leading Dodgers (61-49) to victory.

Not everything went well for the boys from Los Angeles. In the seventh inning shortstop Hanley Ramirez had to leave the game after he hurt his right shoulder while falling in the stands to catch a fly ball.

Dodgers skipper Don Mattingly says he expects Ramirez to have an MRI on the shoulder Monday.

The Dodgers now head to St. Louis for a four-game series against the Cardinals. If the Dodgers win all four games, they will break the New York Giants’ NL record of 17 consecutive road wins. The Giants set that record in 1916.
