ON THE MOUND: Josh Beckett continued to be victimized by the Dodgers' inconsistency, as he lost for the third time in his last four starts. Beckett pitched seven innings and was charged with four runs (three earned) and five hits. He struck out six.

AT THE PLATE: The Dodgers scored only one run in five innings against Bronson Arroyo, who said after the game he would likely be put on the disabled list because of a sore elbow. Matt Kemp continued to show signs of life at the plate, as he was two for three with a walk. Kemp is batting .419 over his last 10 games. Adrian Gonzalez is also showing signs he could be coming out of his offensive funk. Gonzalez was one for three with a walk and reached base safely six times in the three-game series.

MEDICAL REPORT: Carl Crawford's recovery has stalled, Manager Don Mattingly said. Crawford, who has been sidelined since May 27 because of a sprained left ankle, is no longer hitting or running. "We really thought he was getting close," Mattingly said. "And all of a sudden, it seemed like he hit a level where he was feeling different things and wasn't able to keep going." … Juan Uribe could start a minor league rehabilitation assignment this week. Uribe is recovering from a right hamstring strain.

UP NEXT: Hyun-Jin Ryu (7-3, 3.33 ERA) will face the Colorado Rockies and Tyler Matzek (1-0, 2.57) on Monday at 7 p.m. at Dodger Stadium. On the air: SportsNet LA; Radio: 570, 1020 (Spanish).
