Aug. 14, 2012 at 11:57 PM

PITTSBURGH, Aug. 14 (UPI) -- Luis Cruz went 3-for-5 with three RBI to back Chad Billingsley's eight shutout innings Tuesday in the Los Angeles Dodgers' 11-0 rout of Pittsburgh.

Cruz delivered a two-run single in the fourth inning to hand the Dodgers a 4-0 lead and made it 5-0 an inning later with another run-producing hit.

Hanley Ramirez added three hits, including a two-run double in the ninth, and Andre Ethier knocked in a pair for the Dodgers, who took their second victory in a four-game series.

Billingsley (9-9) baffled the Pirates on five hits, issued only one walk and struck out five in notching his fifth consecutive win.

The Dodgers -- who came into the game tied with the San Francisco Giants for first place in the National League West -- notched their fifth win in six games.

Pirates starter Kevin Correia (9-7) was roughed up for six runs (five earned) on seven hits over six innings.

Pittsburgh lost for the eighth straight time against Los Angeles.
