Dodgers have no answer for pitcher Patrick Corbin in 3-0 loss to the Diamondbacks | LAT

The Dodgers have played seven games this season. They have scored one run or fewer in four.

The lineup longs for the return of All-Star third baseman Justin Turner as he recuperates from a fractured wrist. The malaise extends from Chris Taylor (.574 on-base plus slugging percentage) at the top of the lineup to Corey Seager (.414 OPS) and Puig (.476 OPS) in the middle to Logan Forsythe (.291 OPS) at the bottom.

After Kenley Jansen blew a save on Monday, the offense scored only one run during the final two games of this three-day pounding.

Given the Cubs struggles, the fact that the Dodgers struggles have probably been worse this first week is the one thing that keeps me sane.
