Fifth Starter Competition Heats Up

Three contenders for the Dodgers’ fifth starter job saw action Saturday, with mixed results.

Eric Stults and Russ Ortiz threw a pair of scoreless innings each against the White Sox, but James McDonald was charged with three runs on five hits in two innings as he struggled with command of his off-speed pitches.

Swingman Jeff Weaver, who missed three days of workouts for the birth of his son, was charged with three runs on four hits and the loss in his first game action. — Ken Gurnick
