CHICAGO, JULY 6 -- Andre Dawson went three for four with two home runs and a double to drive in four runs and Steve Trout pitched a four-hitter yesterday, leading the Chicago Cubs to a 7-0 victory over the San Diego Padres.
Dawson, batting fourth for the first time this season, homered in the second inning, doubled and scored on a single by Keith Moreland in the fourth and capped a four-run fifth with a three-run homer, his 23rd of the season. He increased his RBI production for the season to 73.
Both of his homers cleared the left field screen and landed on Waveland Avenue. Moreland also hit a homer that fell onto Waveland Avenue in the sixth inning, his 14th of the season.
Trout (5-3) allowed four singles: to Tony Gwynn in the fourth, to Garry Templeton in the fifth and eighth and to Shane Mack in the eighth. He walked three and struck out five in pitching his second complete game of the season. It was Trout's first shutout in two years and the eighth of his career.
The game marked the fourth time this season and the 21st time in his career that Dawson has hit two homers in one game.
