Dodgers Vs. Pirates Final Score: L.A. Completes 3-Game Sweep With 3-2 Win

The Los Angeles Dodgers completed their three-game sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates on Thursday night with a 3-1 win over Pittsburgh at Dodger Stadium. The win was the Dodgers' sixth straight over the Pirates and moved Los Angeles to 6-1, the best record in MLB.

The Dodgers scored three runs in the first inning, on a sacrifice fly by Juan Rivera and a pair of RBI singles by James Loney and Juan Uribe. Loney's hit snapped an 0-for-16 streak to open the season.

The Dodgers didn't score after the first inning, and the Pirates tacked on runs in the fifth and sixth innings, but the bullpen made the lead hold up. Chris Capuano stuck out seven and walked none while pitching into the sixth inning for his first win of the season.

"Overall I'm happy. That first win can be a tough one to get. That was really a win that the bullpen deserved a lot of credit for," Capuano said after the game.

Javy Guerra pitched a perfect ninth inning for his third save in three days, and fifth of the season.

The Dodgers welcome the San Diego Padres to Dodger Stadium for a three-game weekend series beginning Friday night with Aaron Harang facing Clayton Richard.
