Rapid Reaction: Pirates 6, Dodgers 1

PITTSBURGH – One good thing happened. Yasiel Puig got on the field for the first time in four days. He pinch hit and drew a walk against Pittsburgh Pirates reliever Justin Wilson in the eighth inning, leading to the promise of him starting this weekend’s games in San Francisco. Otherwise, it was a fairly ugly loss for the Dodgers at PNC Park, 6-1 Wednesday night, dropping them to 2-4 on this road trip. How it happened: Dan Haren’s trudge through the middle of the season continued.

Rapid Reaction: Pirates 12, Dodgers 7

PITTSBURGH -- Josh Beckett was the brightest surprise of the first half for the Los Angeles Dodgers, but his story took an ominous turn when he started feeling hip pain in June and went into the All-Star break on the disabled list. Tuesday, he returned and didn't look like the pitcher with the fourth-best ERA in the National League in a 12-7 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates. Combined with some miserable work from the bullpen, the Dodgers' needs entering the trade deadline appear clearer and clearer: add quality to the rotation and bullpen.
