  • Preview: Dodgers at Pirates

    The Pittsburgh Pirates and Los Angeles Dodgers had the ball flying out of PNC Park for the middle contest of their three-game series, which wraps up with the rubber match Wednesday. The Pirates slugged three homers and the Dodgers two in Pittsburgh's 12-7 win to even the series, marking the Pirates' first multi-homer game at home since June 9. They've also given up their share of blasts at home, allowing 40 homers at PNC Park this season after surrendering only 37 at home all of last season.One of the players who went deep for Pittsburgh on Tuesday was second baseman Neil Walker, who is hitting .478 during a six-game hitting streak. The Pirates haven't had to contend with Dodgers stars Hanley Ramirez and Yasiel Puig so far in the series, as both remain day-to-day after being hit in the hand by pitches during a weekend series in St. Louis. Puig was available to pinch hit Tuesday — though he was not used — but Ramirez was unavailable.
