Dodgers look to snap 5-game losing streak

Don Mattingly's 52nd birthday didn't begin well. How will it end? - Rob Carr

Jerry Hairston Jr., who spent the first seven years of his career with the Orioles, gets the start in right field on Saturday night in Baltimore.

The Dodgers look for something, anything to shake their slump on Saturday night against the Orioles. The Dodgers have lost five straight games and are 1-6 in the seven games since Carlos Quentin broke Zack Greinke's collarbone.

The Dodgers had a seven-game losing streak in 2012, and they also had a five-game losing streak. In 2010, they had four different six-game losing streaks.

The 7-5 loss on Saturday morning dropped the Dodgers to 17-50 (.254) in American League parks since the beginning of the 2005 season.

After Carl Crawford served as designated hitter in the first game of the doubleheader, Andre Ethier is the designated hitter for the night game on Saturday, with Jerry Hairston in right field. So the Dodgers' decision to add a third catcher for five games continues to be a head scratcher, as the only dividend it has yielded so far has been having Tim Federowicz pinch hit late in a blowout on Wednesday night at home.
