Mookie Betts will miss his third straight start with a sore left middle finger today. "The hope," Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said, is that the time off coupled with tomorrow's scheduled off day will be enough to get him back in the lineup Friday. But he is "not certain." ‬In terms of Betts potentially having to go on the IL: "I just don't think we're there yet with Mookie."
