It was another solid outing for Dodgers RHP Brandon McCarthy, who gave up two runs over seven innings to a Diamondbacks offense that had been red hot. The club's No. 4 starter when the season started, McCarthy has been the best Dodgers pitcher not named Clayton Kershaw. McCarthy and Kershaw are the only Dodgers to have pitched into the seventh inning this year.

Terrific split screen shot on NESN of Machado-Pedroia conversation. Pedroia said, "It's not me." Machado pointed to head.

Not surprising in 6-0 game that Matt Barnes would take opportunity to throw at Manny Machado. Out of bounds, though, to throw up around head.

The Cubs dropped the finale to the Reds 7-5 on Sunday after getting down early in the game but the story of the day has to be Reds starter Bronson Arroyo. He may have reached 85 mph on a pitch or two but he hovered in the 70's while retiring the first 10 batters he faced. Anthony Rizzo's third home run in as many days were the only runs scored off of Arroyo as he fanned 7 with his slow stuff. A ninth inning rally stalled when Miguel Montero hit into a double play while John Lackey wasn't great and neither was the Cubs defense. Their win streak ends at 4.

It is starting to look more likely that LHP Julio Urias will pitch for the Dodgers this week at San Francisco. Manager Dave Roberts would not confirm such a scenario, but if he moves Kenta Maeda's next start to Friday, somebody will have to pick up a start. Urias is lined up to pitch on Wednesday, although the Dodgers could use him Wednesday or Thursday against the Giants.

Doug Padilla ESPN Staff Writer 

Dodgers RHP Kenta Maeda, currently scheduled to pitch Thursday at San Francisco, could have that outing delayed until Friday, manager Dave Roberts said. That would have the struggling pitcher lined up for the opener of a home series against the Phillies.
