Dodgers edge Pirates 5-3 in 11 innings

Posted: Updated:

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Juan Uribe singled home Andre Ethier in the top of the 11th inning to rally the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 5-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Saturday.

Ethier doubled off Vin Mazzaro (3-1) leading off the 11th then raced home when Uribe's chopper went over the head of third baseman Pedro Alvarez. Nick Punto drove in Uribe with a double to the gap one batter later to provide some insurance.

Peter Moylan (1-0) picked up the win after escaping a bases-loaded jam in the 10th. Brandon League, who lost his job as the closer to Kenley Jansen this week, managed the final three outs for his 14th save.

Travis Snider capped a late Pittsburgh rally with a solo home run off Jansen with one out in the ninth to tie the game.
