Dodgers Vs. Diamondbacks Game Preview: Josh Beckett Makes Dodger Stadium Debut For L.A.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have lost two straight against the Arizona Diamondbacks, and they will look to turn things around with Josh Beckett (5-12, 5.21 ERA) on the hill making his Dodgers Stadium debut. Beckett's first start saw him allow three runs on seven hits in 5 2/3 innings while striking out six and walking three as the club's offense went silent and the team lost 10-0.

Beckett will face off with Tyler Skaggs (1-1, 2.92 ERA), Arizona's rookie pitching prospect. Skaggs struggled in his second big league start, giving up three runs (two earned) with five strikeouts, two walks and two batters hit.

The Dodgers are 4 1/2 games behind the San Francisco Giants in the NL West pennant race, and only 1 1/2 games out of one of the two NL Wild Cards. With a three game series coming up against the Giants, putting together a few wins could put them within striking distance of the division title.
