More: Pirates lose another one run game, fall to Dodgers
There wasn't a lot of activity in the the Pittsburgh Pirates 2-1 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday, until Andre Either hit a home run to give the Dodgers a defining one-run advantage.
Kevin Correia pitched six inning for the Pirates and gave one run, four hits in six innings. Correia also struck out three batters and walked four. Jason Grilli, however, was the losing pitcher, coming in after the game was already tied 1-1 in the eighth inning when he gave up the homer to Eithier.
Pittsburgh score that lone run on five hits in the game, while Los Angeles put up seven hits. For the Dodgers, the winning pitcher was Kenley Jansen and Javy Guerra got the save, but it was Clayton Kershaw who pitched the first seven innings of the game. Kershaw gave up only one earned run, four hits and he struck out seven without walking any Pittsburgh hitters.
The squads will play again Wednesday at 10:10 p.m.
