Left-hander John Danks, who entered with a 3-5 record and an ERA of 4.66, picked up his fourth victory. He allowed just two hits — both by Dee Gordon — and one run while striking out five. He walked three and hit Scott Van Slyke twice.The Dodgers, who had just the two hits, got their only run in the eighth inning when Hanley Ramirez grounded into a forceout that brought home Gordon, who had hit a one-out double.Ronald Belisario — throwing smoke — closed out the game for the White Sox for the second consecutive night by pitching a 1-2-3 ninth inning. It was his fifth save.Prior to the game, Mattingly emphasized that his team’s struggles are not the result of one or two players failing to play up to their potential. It’s about the team not playing as a unit.Mattingly brought former Dodgers manager Tommy Lasorda into the conversation. “Tommy says it all the time,” Mattingly said. “And it seems corny at times, but he says, ‘Hey, we’ve all gotta get on one end of the rope and pull.’ And you know what? As many times as you’ve heard Tommy say it, it’s absolutely true.”Afterward, Mattingly was an upset man.“Josh was good, the bullpen threw the ball good,” Mattingly said. “Yeah, obviously, Danks was that good tonight. He was just better than us tonight. I just thought he was better than us. He was better than us tonight. I really think you should talk to them.“I’m tired of answering the questions, honestly. Home, away, whatever, I don’t know. It’s just being, basically, (expletive). We’re just not that good.”When a reporter asked Mattingly about the slump Adrian Gonzalez is in — he went 0 for 4 in the cleanup spot — Mattingly was not happy.“Seriously, one thing, and we’re going to look at one thing,” he said, frustrated. “I don’t have any problems with Adrian at all, to be honest with you.”A lifetime .293 hitter, Gonzalez is batting .259 and has four hits in his last 22 at-bats.Indeed, frustration has set in as the Dodgers are now just one game over .500 and have lost three of four.Asked what his team needs to do to turn it around, Mattingly said, “We need to win.”Catcher Drew Butera wore a bummed-out look.“Yeah, it’s frustrating,” Butera said. “We got the loss. He (Beckett) pitched real well, the bullpen pitched real well. It’s frustrating we couldn’t give him a little help.” Beckett was asked what he thought about his manager’s analogy about everyone tugging on the end of the rope.“I don’t know,” he said. “I don’t get too caught up in that stuff. My job here is to make quality pitches and execute.”On the plus side, the Dodgers are playing well defensively. They had one error Wednesday, the only one in the three-game series. Gordon has noticed.“I think we’re playing better defense,” he said. “We’ve been on page on the defensive side of the ball. We’ve been playing better defensively.”The White Sox (31-30) got on the board in the top of the third when Garcia smacked a home run over the center-field fence on the first pitch from Beckett. Garcia came in with just 46 at-bats, one RBI and no major-league home runs.An inning later, Dunn took Beckett deep over the right-field wall for his ninth home run of the season and a 2-0 Chicago lead. The Dodgers had a chance to score in the bottom of the fourth. With one out and Gonzalez on second via an error and Van Slyke at first on a walk, Justin Turner came to bat. He hit a ground ball to second baseman Gordon Beckham, who threw out Turner at first after missing a tag on Van Slyke. A rundown ensued with the ball eventually being thrown to third base to try and get Gonzalez, who had rounded the bag.Gonzalez was ruled safe, and Van Slyke had gotten to second. But White Sox manager Robin Ventura asked for a review, and Gonzalez was subsequently called out to end the inning.The fifth inning might have brought a first. The White Sox had runners at the corners with one out. Dunn was issued what appeared to be a walk to load the bases. But Mattingly came out to talk to the umpires, apparently telling that it was only a 3-2 count.Umpires then instituted a crew review and Mattingly was right. Dunn came back to the plate and was struck out by Beckett on a slow curve. Beckett got out of the inning when Alexei Ramirez hit into a force play.The Dodgers now head to Colorado to begin a three-game series Friday. Then they will play four at Cincinnati starting Monday. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error The Dodgers last year went 42-8 from June to August. It was an incredible run.A year later, the Dodgers are struggling at 31-30 after Wednesday’s loss to the Chicago White Sox in their series finale. The difference? Togetherness, manager Don Mattingly said.Los Angeles once again wasn’t all that together. Josh Beckett pitched well enough to win, but his teammates couldn’t buy many runs — or many hits, for that matter — and the White Sox came away with a 2-1 victory before 45,540 at Dodger Stadium.Beckett (3-3) took the loss. He pitched six innings and gave up nine hits and two runs — home runs by Leury Garcia and Adam Dunn — while striking out six.
