Josh Beckett (5-12, 5.21) vs. Tyler Skaggs (1-1, 2.92).
Did you hear Don Mattingly held another team meeting after last night's loss? We hear his speech went something like this:
"Okay, guys, something's gotta change. There's only
thirty twenty-nine games left in the regular season. We've lost seven eight in a row to the Diamondbacks, and mustering only five six hits and zero three runs over nine eleven innings is completely unacceptable.
"Now, I know it looks like we've lost a valuable contributor in
Kenley Jansen Chad Billingsley, but that doesn't mean you just give up. Pitching reinforcement is on the way, with Matt Guerrier Javy Guerra soon to join us.
"So get out there and give it your all. You won't want 2012 to be as disappointing as
2010 2011, do you?"
