Los Angeles Dodgers’ starting pitcher Josh Beckett has not missed a start since coming off the disabled list to make his season debut on April 9. Suffering a loss Tuesday, the right-hander is now 5-5 with a 2.46 ERA this season.
He also provided one of the more memorable Dodger moments this season by throwing a no-hitter against the Philadelphia Phillies on May 25. Prior to Beckett’s start Tuesday, Don Mattingly stated the pitcher was experiencing some soreness and it’s something the team monitors between each of his starts.
Soreness may have been a factor in tonight’s contest against the Cleveland Indians. Beckett had a subpar pitching performance, going five innings and giving up five runs on six hits. Before tonight, Beckett had thrown seven innings in his last three starts.
