Extra bases

Desmond Jennings, sidelined with a tight left hamstring, was out of the starting lineup again on Tuesday night. Maddon reported that he had no update on Jennings, who played catch on Tuesday but did not run.

• Jennings' injury could open up some doors for Tim Beckham to get more playing time than he was originally thought to receive during his September callup. Beckham has been impressive thus far, entering Tuesday with two hits in six at-bats, as well as a sacrifice fly on Monday, when he started at second base.
