Jared Jones, Pirates silence Dodgers

pirates

Rookie Jared Jones tossed six scoreless innings and Jack Suwinski belted a solo homer in his return to the majors, lifting the host Pittsburgh Pirates to a 1-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday.

Jones (4-5) scattered three hits, three walks and struck out six to record his first win since May 16.

Colin Holderman and Aroldis Chapman each worked around a leadoff hit to complete one scoreless inning of relief. Chapman, in fact, slammed his glove to the ground after Teoscar Hernandez made contact on a long flyout to center field, with the former apparently thinking that he had surrendered a three-run homer in the eighth inning.

David Bednar retired the side in order in the ninth for his 12th save of the season.

Suwinski, who was recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis earlier Tuesday, deposited a 3-2 fastball from Tyler Glasnow (6-4) over the wall in right field in the third inning. The homer was the fifth of the season for Suwinski, who started in center field in place of Ji Hwan Bae (right wrist sprain) after the latter was placed on the 10-day injured list retroactive to Monday.

Bryan Reynolds had two hits and Henry Davis added a double in his return to the lineup for the Pirates, who have won two of their past three games.

Freddie Freeman had two of the five hits for the Dodgers, who were shut out for the fourth time this season.

Davis, the No. 1 overall pick of the 2021 draft, was also recalled from Indianapolis on Tuesday. He ripped a one-out double in the seventh inning off Alex Vesia, but the left-hander responded by striking out Suwinski and Andrew McCutchen to end the inning.

Glasnow permitted one run on three hits and two walks and struck out nine in six innings to take the hard-luck loss. He is 0-3 in his past five starts despite giving up 11 runs and 16 hits in 30 innings.
