Pirates Vs. Dodgers Final Score: Bucs Offense Anemic Yet Again In 4-1 Loss

The Pirates lost 4-1 to the Dodgers Wednesday night as their offense, in what has become a clear trend in this young season, flopped yet again.

The Bucs mustered only six hits against Chad Billingsley and the Dodgers, the fourth time in five games that the Pirates offense has been held to six hits or fewer. On Wednesday, one of those hits was a solo homer to left by Clint Barmes.

The Dodgers scored two runs against Bucs starter Erik Bedard, one on a single by Juan Rivera in the third, and the other on a single by Andre Ethier in the sixth. They scored two more in the seventh on a string of hits against Tony Watson and Evan Meek.

Billingsley picked up the win while striking out four and walking none in six innings. The Pirates struck out eight times and didn’t walk in the course of the game.
