The Los Angeles Dodgers won an 11th consecutive game against the Pittsburgh Pirates behind run support for Walker Buehler provided by AJ Pollock, Mookie Betts, Max Muncy and Chris Taylor.

Buehler finished with a season-low two strikeouts but got through seven shutout innings by pitching to soft contact. The Pirates managed just two hits off Buehler, who matched that total by going 2-for-3 with a pair of singles.

Facing the dodgers for the first time in his career, JT Brubaker kept them off balance through four scoreless innings. L.A. then began to break through in the fifth when Gavin Lux hit a single to right-center field that resulted in a two-base error.

AJ Pollock followed with an RBI double and later in the inning Mookie Betts hit a run-scoring triple, and Max Muncy capped off the two-out rally by driving one in on a base hit.

Chris Taylor added to the Dodgers’ lead with a two-run home run in the sixth inning. The blast was Taylor’s eighth of the season, which is third-most on the team. Taylor additionally leads the Dodgers with a .274 batting average, 45 runs scored and 33 RBI.

Dodgers overturn Hayes home run

The Dodgers appeared to be facing a deficit two batters into the game as Pirates rookie Ke’Bryan Hayes lifted a slicing fly ball down the right-field line. It not only just cleared the high fence at PNC Park, but clanged off the base of the foul pole.

The Dodgers successfully challenged the homer — not whether it stayed fair — but instead after being alerted by Austin Barnes and Clayton Kershaw that Hayes did not touch first base.
