Pirates, Locke shut down reeling Dodgers 3-0

Posted: Updated:

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Jeff Locke allowed just two hits over seven innings and the Pittsburgh Pirates edged the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-0 on Friday night.

Locke (6-1) struck out five and walked one to win his sixth straight decision while shaving his ERA to 2.19. Andrew McCutchen hit a two-run double in the third inning off Stephen Fife (1-2).

Jason Grilli worked out of a two-on, no-out jam in the ninth for his National League-leading 24th save.

The Dodgers played without manager Don Mattingly, who served a 1-game suspension for his role in the brawl with Arizona earlier in the week. Bench coach Trey Hillman filled in for Mattingly. Los Angeles has lost 5 of 6 to fall a season-worst 10 games under .500 (28-38).
