PITTSBURGH (AP) Matt Joyce homered and doubled among his three hits as Pittsburgh beat Los Angeles 8-6 on Friday night, ending the Dodgers' six-game winning streak and giving Pirates manager Clint Hurdle his 1,000th career victory.
Joyce drove in two runs while filling in for right fielder Gregory Polanco, who sat out with lower leg discomfort. Jung Ho Kang also homered as the Pirates won for just the third time in 16 games.
Dodgers rookie shortstop Corey Seager had four hits to extend his hitting streak to eight games.
Neftali Feliz (2-0), the fourth of six Pirates pitchers, retired all five batters he faced and Mark Melancon pitched a scoreless ninth for his 21st save in 22 opportunities.
Nick Tepesch (0-1) gave up five runs and seven hits in just four innings in his first major league appearance since Sept. 26, 2014 with Texas.
