Pittsburgh Pirates defeat LA Dodgers 2-0. With the cold blustery winds making Dodger Stadium seem more like Candlestick Park, a strange night was to be expected. The Dodgers only managed four hits while stranding seven base runners in their 2-0 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates.

After Clayton Kershaw (1-1) walked two and struck out two to start the game, Matt Kemp misplayed a soft line drive by Garrett Jones that dropped and got behind him. Generously ruled a triple by the official scorer, it allowed the two walks to score giving the Pirates the early 2-0 lead.

“I just missed it,” Kemp said. “I should have went to try and catch it or back off of it and let one run score and leave that other run on third base.”
