    Josh Beckett struggles with encore; Dodgers fall to Pirates, 2-1

    Hanley Ramirez comes in handy as Dodgers defeat Pirates, 12-2

    Dodgers are still trying to find their groove
    For the second consecutive year, the Dodgers are 71/2 games out of first place after the first game of June. It all worked out just fine last year, of course. But, on the first day of June 2013, Yasiel Puig was two days from his major league debut,...
