RAISE IT!!!

Pirates 5 Dodgers 3 FINAL

Pirates improve to 10-13 on the road 3-2 on this west coast road trip and 4-1 on the season against the Dodgers.

Pirates are now responsible for a quarter of the Dodgers losses on the season.

This win coming without Bednar, Vogelbach, Camel, Newman, and Tsutsugo.

And probably the most remarkable thing about this win is that Mitch Keller picked up the win.

🧹 out tomorrow going for the sweep in LA.

One more observation the two run homer by Marcano was big, but he also had a sac bunt in the 9th that put the runner in scoring position. Reynolds knocked in the run two batters later. This kid is a ball player, I am very excited to see this young man in a Pirates uniform for years to come. What a future this guy has in front of him.

One last comment: The Dodgers came into this series with a +119 run differential by far the best in the majors, on pace for a record setting year. In contrast the Pirates were -84 run differential by far the worst in the majors. It truly was a matchup of David vs. Goliath.
