Jeff Locke bamboozled the Dodgers for seven innings, holding them to no runs on just two hits through seven innings. Mark Melancon and Jason Grilli each gave up two hits in their innings of relief, but the Dodgers could never plate a runner, falling to Pittsburgh 3-0.
Yasiel Puig went 2 for 4 with a bunt single to lead off the game and an infield hit in the ninth. Jerry Hairston had the Dodgers only extra base hit, a double in the 8th.
The Pirates are now 40-27 on the season and 24-12 at PNC Park. The Dodgers are 28-38 and 9-18 on the road. I appreciate that the Bucs and Dodgers have winning percentages on the home and road that are reciprocal.
