DODGERS 9, PIRATES 3
- Hiroki Kuroda: 97 pitches (70 strikes), 8.0 IP, 5 H, 1 ER, 3K
- Andre Ethier: 2 HR, 3-for-5, 4 RBIs
- Xavier Paul: 2-for-5, 2 R
- Matt Kemp: 2-for-4, 3 R
- James Loney: 3-for-4, 2 RBIs
- Blake DeWitt: 4-for-4, 3 RBIs
Not in the box score: great defensive plays by Matt Kemp and Ronnie Belliard.
Home sweet home? The Dodgers are riding a few streaks:
- they've won all three of their home series
- they've had five consecutive errorless games
- Ethier has homered in three straight games (with 4 HR total)
Today's lone speedbump was George Sherrill unable to close the game, even with an eight-run lead.
Off-day tomorrow (PCS alert!), with the Brewers coming into town starting Tuesday.
