A seven-game homestand resulted in a 3-4 record for the Los Angeles Dodgers, who have split the first two of a three-game series with the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Dodgers will play the finale against the Diamondbacks Sunday before moving on to New York and Philadelphia for the remaining road games.

The bullpen has yet again been a source of frustration for the Dodgers. Public enemy No. 1 out of the bullpen has been Brian Wilson as he continues to struggle along in his outings. Wilson’s velocity was low in an appearance Wednesday, but the reliever managed to put forth a better effort in Friday’s win.
