It did not seem to matter what decision Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo made here over the weekend. Whether he stuck with his starter, whether he played things conservatively, whether he managed aggressively – whatever his move, it seemed, it was bound to fail.

For the third consecutive day, the Diamondbacks watched a late-game lead evaporate against the Los Angeles Dodgers. All three games ended with the same 3-2 score. And all three ended with carnage strewn across the landscape.

They easily could have won each of the four games they played at Dodger Stadium over the weekend. They could have headed home with a comfortable lead in the National League West, riding high after beating back their rival.

Instead, they left Dodger Stadium on Sunday as a third-place team, losers of three of four. They were overtaken in the standings by both the Dodgers, the new stretch-run leaders, and the Colorado Rockies.

With 25 games remaining, the Diamondbacks might not have lost the National League West over the weekend, but they made winning it far more difficult.

BOX SCORE:  Dodgers 3, Diamondbacks 2
