Dodgers 6, Pirates 2
Orlando Hudson (left) had three hits and two RBIs to back Jon Garland's win. (Jon SooHoo/Dodgers)
Andre Ethier set a career high for homers when he broke a tie in the fifth with a two-run shot, his 29th long ball of the season. That helped Jon Garland improve to 2-0 with the Dodgers, who stretched their lead in the NL West to four games.
