Dodgers vs. Pirates: Dodgers Lead 4-2 Heading Into 7th Inning Stretch

Shane Victorino is punishing the Pirates for poor pitch placement today, driving home three of the Dodgers four runs - including a two-run home run and a double.

Aaron Harang is pitching a respectable, yet somewhat shaky game, giving up five hits and three walks for two runs. He has struck out four Pirates.

Victorino got the party started by driving a double to right field in the 3rd inning, scoring A.J. Ellis. He then continued the fun in the 5th with a two run homerun off of Jeff Karstens. It was the 10th home run of Victorino's season, and his first in a Dodgers uniform.

Matt Kemp also singled home a run in the third inning to make it 2-0 Dodgers, but the Pirates countered back in the bottom of the third as Garrett Jones hit a two run double off of Harang.

Javy Guerra is starting to pitch the seventh inning for the Dodgers.
