LOS ANGELES (AP) – At least in May, the young Pittsburgh Pirates have a Los Angeles Dodgers number.
Against one of the best teams in baseball, the Pirates increased their score to 4-0, fell behind in the eighth inning, and then rallied in the ninth to get a wild 6-5 victory on Monday night.
“For us, this is a great team victory. “We kept fighting,” said manager Derek Shelton, who won his 100th career victory. “We kept rubbing bats. It was cool to see.”
Michael Perez struck a balance in the ninth inning, and Michael Chavis, who is a runner-up, scored a goal through a mistake by Freddie Freeman and stopped the Dodgers series of four games.
Los Angeles scored twice in the eighth to gain a single lead before the Pirates headed into the gate against the nearest Craig Kimbrell (0-1), who was hit for the first time this season.
“I’ll be the first to tell you that my last couple of trips have been pretty bad,” Kimbrell said. “I really wasn’t who I should be. I hurt myself a lot by walking guys and throwing wild fields or beating guys. ”
This month, the Pirates defeated the Dodgers in three of four meetings. Los Angeles withdrew from an 8-2 trip that included four Arizona sweep games.
“We played well against them and didn’t beat ourselves, which is the most important thing,” Shelton said. “You really have to do it because they’re so good.”
Coming out one on the ninth, Diego Castillo walked and moved to second place on Kimbrel’s wild field, which reached a constipation. Perez distinguished himself on the deep right field, killing Castillo, and moved to second place in the throw home.
Chavis scored a goal due to Freeman’s mistake when the ball that hit Cal Mitchell came out of the first man’s glove from the bottom.
“I missed it,” Freeman said. “We had a chance to win, but we just didn’t.”
The Dodgers – with 13 Premier League comeback victories – have yet to do so.
The Bats Flour double on basic rules in the ninth from David Bednar (2-1) put a potential draw in a goal position. Fans chanted his name, and Freeman took a seven-step walk, putting up a potential advantage.
Betts remained in place for Trea Turner’s long flight to the right field for the second exit. Will Smith crossed out the scope to finish the 0-for-5 performance and the game.
“Roller coasters,” Bednar said.
The Dodgers fell 4-0 early, but briefly took the lead in the eighth against Bednar.
Turner doubled the lead as the ball popped out of another man’s glove from Castillo’s base as he went for Turner’s mark who slid his head into the bag. After Smith took off and Edwin Rios knocked the ball out, Justin Turner doubled to the left center, scoring Trea Turner in an equal series.
Chris Taylor, who came on as a substitute in defense in seventh place, moved to the right center, scoring Justin Turner and putting the Dodgers ahead 5-4.
“I came to the dugout incredibly disappointed,” said Bednar, who was asked to return at nine o’clock. “I just needed to wash it off very quickly.”
Tucupita Marcana scored Homer in three rounds, his first in the majors, in the second inning from Walker Buhler and brought the Pirates ahead 3-0.
They made it 4-0 in the third with a solo shot by Brian Reynolds on the first inning from Buhler.
Pirates starter Zach Thompson allowed two runs and four strokes in 5 2/3 innings. The right-hander knocked out four and walked one.
The Dodgers had potential equilibrium and productive results in seventh place. With two outings Hanser Alberta achieved a single productive game on the backyard to get a short stop from the revolver Dylan Peters. He was walking to Bates before Freeman hit Peters with a helicopter, who rushed first to stop the threat.
The Dodgers trailed 4-2 in the fifth after Alberta and Batts played Homers in a row with two outs. It was the third time this season that the team has come out in a row. Edwin Rios ’solo homer in the sixth brought them to 4-3.
Buhler gave up four runs and seven strokes in six innings. He crossed out seven and passed one.
Dodgers: OF Cody Bellinger was removed from the squad before the game due to left foot strain. Kevin Pilar started in the center of the field. … LHP Clayton Kershaw (pelvis) threw the bullpen 35th. “He was great,” manager Dave Roberts said. Kershaw will drop another bullpen in a few days and go into rehab. … LHP Andrew Heaney (shoulder discomfort) threw a 35-point simulation game. He will hold a side session this week before heading to rehab on Friday. … 1B Max Muncie (left elbow inflammation) will return to the team’s spring training session in Arizona later this week. He didn’t wave a bat during the four-game series against Diamondbacks. “We don’t want to delay his recovery,” Roberts said.

Infield Yu Chang was bought from Cleveland for money and added to the active list before the game. To make room for Chang, infield-outfielder Hoi Park was selected at Triple-A Indianapolis.
Pirates: RHP Mitch Keller (1-5, 6.05 ERA) has struggled with stability this season, especially in the first inning when he was badly hit.
Dodgers: LHP Julio Urias (3-4, 2.49 ERA) for the first time in his career faced the Pirates earlier this month, allowing two runs and 11 strokes in six innings.
