MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers 5, Pittsburgh 3 (11 innings)

June 15, 2013 at 9:31 PM

PITTSBURGH, June 15 (UPI) -- Juan Uribe's run-scoring single put Los Angeles ahead in the 11th inning Saturday and the Dodgers went to outlast Pittsburgh 5-3.

The Dodgers seemed on their way to victory late in the game with a 3-1 lead, but the Pirates fought back when Neil Walker provided an RBI single in the eighth and Travis Snider tied it with a solo homer in the ninth.

In the 11th, however, Andre Ethier (3-for-5) led off with a double against Vin Mazzaro (3-1) went to third on a sacrifice and came home with the deciding run when Uribe sent a solid shot to left field.

The Dodgers then added an insurance run on Nick Punto's pinch-hit RBI double.

Peter Moylan (1-0) earned the decision with a scoreless 10th and Brandon League got his 14th save despite allowing two runners in the 11th as Los Angeles evened its three-game series.

Russell Martin supplied an RBI for the Pirates, who fell for second time in three games overall.
