Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander Josh Beckett left his start Friday against the Chicago Cubs after three innings Friday because of a sore thumb on his pitching hand.
Expected to be the Dodgers' No. 5 starter, Beckett allowed only an infield single to Emilio Bonifacio while walking two and striking out one.
