The Dodgers were manhandled by the Diamondbacks for the second time in two nights. The 11-5 loss came a day after a 13-5 drubbing. Taking it on the chin Saturday was Dodgers starter Kenta Maeda, who gave up four home runs, two more than he had ever given up in a major league game. Maeda's ERA is now a whopping 8.05. David Peralta had a Diamondbacks' record four doubles.

Dodgers RHP Kenta Maeda has given up four HRs to the Diamondbacks in less than 5 IP. The Dodgers need length out of Maeda on Saturday since five relievers saw action Friday. Maeda's ERA has now ballooned to 8.05 this season. The Dodgers trail Arizona 6-2 after losing 13-5 Friday night.

Jazz C Rudy Gobert (knee) is listed as doubtful for Game 4 against the Clippers

Doug Padilla ESPN Staff Writer 

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts was coy when asked where LHP Julio Urias might make his next start after throwing 93 pitches and 5.2 IP for AAA Oklahoma City on Friday. Asked if it might be with the Dodgers, Roberts repeated that it would be five innings. One consideration on whether Urias pitches for the Dodgers next is if the bullpen is rested and ready to back him up that day.

Jazz C Rudy Gobert is being evaluated on a daily basis, but a source says it's unlikely that he will be ready to play in Sunday's Game 4.
