LOS ANGELES, Sept. 16 (UPI) -- Pitcher Ross Ohlendorf put Pittsburgh in front with his first major league homer Thursday, sending the Pirates to a 6-2 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The Pirates had runners on first and second with two away in the second when Brandon Wood delivered an RBI single that tied it at 1-1.
That brought up Ohlendorf for his 101st career at-bat in a five-year career with the New York Yankees and Pittsburgh. He drove the first pitch from Dana Eveland over the wall in right for a three-run shot that gave the Pirates the lead for good.
Ohlendorf (1-2) won his first game since July 10, 2010, allowing two runs on four hits in seven innings.
Eveland (2-1) gave up four runs on eight hits in taking the loss.
The loss eliminated the Dodgers from the National League West pennant race.
