Adrian Gonzalez (hit) also had a run batted in and Joc Pederson contributed a solo homer (18th).

Pederson, Corey Seager, Chase Utley and Howie Kendrick paced the Dodgers to an 8-4 decision over the Pirates on Saturday.

Pederson scored two runs and dropped in a single, double with a homer and two RBIs; Seager scored once, added three hits with an RBI; Utley tossed in two hits with a run and an RBI; Kendrick had two hits with a run and an RBI.

On Friday, Pittsburgh romped 5-1 as Andrew McCutchen scored twice, singled and homered and drove in two and Jordy Mercer chipped in with a run, a single and two RBIs.

Philadelphia scored three runs in the seventh and ninth and claimed a 6-2 victory over the host Dodgers on Wednesday.

Freddy Galvis (two runs scored) walloped a three-run homer in the seventh to make it 3-2.

The Dodgers routed the Phillies 9-3 on Tuesday behind Kendrick’s run-scoring double and two-run homer.

Yasmani Grandal and Justin Turner (two hits) added two-run shots and Kenta Maeda (11-7) went five innings, allowing six hits with three runs.

The Dodgers blasted the Phillies 9-4 on Monday as Julio Urias (3-3) toiled five frames, yielding five hits and three runs (one earned).
