McCutchen leads Pirates to 5-3 win over Dodgers

Posted: Updated:
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Slumping Andrew McCutchen hit his first home run in over a month, doubled twice and scored two runs to help the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-3 on Sunday and take three of four from the defending NL West champions.

Josh Harrison also homered and Pedro Alvarez drove in three runs, helping the Pirates win for the eighth time in 12 games.

Edinson Volquez (3-4) allowed two runs and five hits over five innings, striking out six and walking one. Jason Grilli, the fifth Pirates pitcher, got three outs for his eighth save and third of the series after giving up a pair of two-out walks and an RBI single by pinch-hitter Scott Van Slyke. It was the Dodgers only hit after Justin Turner's solo homer with one out in the fourth.

Zack Greinke (8-2) gave up a season-worst four runs and five hits in seven innings and struck out seven.
