Billingsley, Dodgers Look To Snap Two-Game Skid Against Diamondbacks

The Dodgers are 5-8 against the Diamondbacks this season.

The Los Angeles Dodgers look to snap their three-game losing streak on Tuesday night, hosting the Arizona Diamondbacks at Dodger Stadium. Chad Billingsley looks to get back on track after a string of bad starts. Ian Kennedy gets the start for Arizona, looking for his 20th win of the season.

Billingsley is 2-3 with a 5.20 ERA in 10 starts since the All-Star break, but it has been even worse in his last two outings. He has allowed nine runs in 6 1/3 innings over his last two outings, including just 2 1/3 in his last start, the shortest outing by a Dodger this season. Billingsley has spoken of a mechanical flaw in his delivery. He'll need to fix it for tonight, facing Kennedy, who has beaten the Dodgers in all three starts against them this year.
