The Dodgers offense was stymied by Zac Gallen, the defense was subpar, and the pitching wasn’t very effective in a loss to the Diamondbacks and a missed opportunity to gain ground in the National League West.
Clayton Kershaw starts for the Dodgers on Saturday against the Diamondbacks, but with Kenley Jansen and Blake Treinen used heavily of late, how they finish might be just as important.
The Dodgers swept the D-backs in their last meeting.
