Rough night for Pirates as Dodgers have grand time

Rough night for Pirates as Dodgers have grand time

Instead, Taylor smacked a grand slam that sparked a strong start for the Los Angeles Dodgers in a rout of the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday night. In a game such as this, manager Clint Hurdle will take whatever positives he can get.

After missing a turn in the rotation, the right-hander is slated to make his next start at Milwaukee on Friday night. "He's a guy that every time we've seen him he seems older than his years out there". Their 15 hits tied a season high.

Yasiel Puig also tagged Williams for home run in the first inning to make the score 6-0. Until Monday's debacle, Pittsburgh won 10 of its previous 13 at Chavez Ravine.

In just his second start since returning from the disabled list, Joc Pederson, finished 3-for-5 with a double, two RBI and two runs scored. "I had a chance to stop the bleeding, but unfortunately he [Taylor] hit it over the fence for four runs".

The Dodgers had runners on second and third base in the third inning when Yasmani Grandal hit a ball 84 feet down the first-base line in near-slow motion.

Jose Osuna drove in the lone run with an RBI single in the sixth for the Pirates (14-18), who have lost four of their past six games. Seager was not hurt, but Roberts opted to rest his star shortstop for the final five innings of the blowout.

McCarthy was originally scheduled to pitch on Saturday but had his start bumped back to Sunday after injuring his shoulder while lifting weights. One inning later, Justin Turner was pulled.

The Los Angeles Dodgers placed pitcher Brandon McCarthy on the 10-day disabled list Monday due to shoulder soreness, the team announced. The 31-year-old was hired in January and is the youngest head coach in modern National Football League history. He exchanged a hug and a few words with Roberts on the field. Ivan Nova gets the ball, and he is 3-3 with a 2.14 ERA and 27 strikeouts this season. He's walked one batter in 42 innings this season and has thrown two complete games. In his only two appearances this season, both starts against the rival Giants, the Dodgers split the contests although Urias didn't factor into a decision in either. The team's top pitching prospect has held opponents to a.229 batting average in the previous two, but he's walked eight and struck out five.
