Josh Beckett unable to go four innings Tuesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10:50 pm ET) Dodgers pitcher Josh Beckett lasted just 3 2/3 innings Tuesday.

Beckett was limited in his first start off the disabled list. He allowed four runs on six hits over 3 2/3 innings. Beckett threw 69 pitches before being removed from the game. He struck out four and did not issue any walks. 

Home runs wound up being a major issue for Beckett. He allowed three during the game. Neil Walker and Ike Davis went yard in the second inning, and Gregory Polanco struck in the third. Neil Walker added a run-scoring double, scoring the fourth run. 

The performance earned Beckett a no-decision. His next start is slated to come against the Braves.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10:48 pm ET) Cubs pitcher Kyle Hendricks turned in a fantastic start Tuesday against the Padres.

He put two men on in three different innings, but was able to get inning-ending double plays each time. Hendricks also managed to finish strong, striking out the side in his final inning of work. 

The win brought Hendricks to 1-0 on the year. His next start is slated to come against the Cardinals.

Anthony Rizzo would add a solo shot in the third, and Justin Ruggiano would single in a run in the fifth.

The loss dropped Stults to 3-12 on the year. His next start will come against the Braves.

Jacob Turner earns the win Tuesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Turner ran into trouble early, but was able to pitch around any big plays. After giving up a single with the bases loaded, Turner was able to escape the first inning after inducing a double-play. A Justin Upton home run was the only other blemish against his stat-line. 

Turner tossed five innings, giving up two runs on four hits. He struck out four and walked two. The win brings Turner to 3-6 on the year. He’ll take on the Astros in his next outing. 


Mike Minor roughed up Tuesday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Minor lasted just three innings, giving up six runs on 10 hits. Things could have actually been worse. Minor loaded the bases in the first inning before recording an out, but managed to escape after giving up just one run. After a quiet second inning, things went south. Minor walked the leadoff hitter to open the third, and allowed to straight hits to bring in another run. A ground out and single scored the other two runs during the inning.

Minor actually came out for the fourth, but was replaced after giving up three straight hits to open the inning. A run scored after Minor left the game, but was charged to him. 

The loss dropped Minor to 3-6 on the year. He’s set to take on the Padres in his next start.
