Entering the highly anticipated weekend series with the Red Sox, which was billed as a potential preview to the World Series, the Dodgers failed to show up. With a 8-1 loss on Sunday evening, the Dodgers were left reeling in frustration and the Red Sox were ecstatic to be returning to Boston with another series win.

LOS ANGELES As an injured observer watching from the sidelines, Dodgers pitcher Josh Beckett knows exactly what he's seeing when he watches Dodgers teammate Clayton Kershaw on the mound.
