Six-run first helps Dodgers rout Pirates

The Los Angeles Dodgers spoiled the Pirates return to sunny Southern California by pounding Pittsburgh, 12-1, on Monday night at Dodger Stadium. In a game such as this, manager Clint Hurdle will take whatever positives he can get.

McCarthy was off to a strong start to the season with a 3-0 record and a 3.10 ERA in five starts. And even though he was trying to solidify his role as the replacement in the Pirates' starting rotation for Jameson Taillon, whose timetable for return seems much more open-ended after a harrowing weekend that included surgery to combat what was suspected by doctors to be testicular cancer. He said he did not feel affected while throwing.

Chris Taylor and Yasiel Puig hit home runs in front of an announced crowd of 37,314 at Dodger Stadium.

Pittsburgh entered the game winners of 10-of-13 against the Dodgers since 2015, including a 5-2 mark last season, but the Dodgers wasted no time turning the tables on the Pirates.

"Chris just really set the tone, and we just built off that the rest of the game, and a good way to start the series", said Pederson, who went 3-for-5 and drove in a pair of runs. "I had a chance to stop the bleeding, but unfortunately he [Taylor] hit it over the fence for four runs".

"His swing past year couldn't really handle velocity", said Roberts of Taylor's turnaround since last season.

Williams was able to avoid more damage in the second, but in the third, singles by Pederson and Taylor and a double by Puig plated two more runs.

Jose Osuna drove in the lone run with an RBI single in the sixth for the Pirates (14-18), who have lost four of their last six games.

With the Dodgers leading 10-0 after five innings, Roberts removed shortstop Corey Seager. The 31-year-old was hired in January and is the youngest head coach in modern National Football League history.

Brandon McCarthy is the latest starter to be placed on the disabled list. He exchanged a hug and a few words with Roberts on the field.

Pirates: RHP Ivan Nova (3-3, 2.14 ERA) is scheduled to make his seventh start of the season Tuesday against the Dodgers. "Those guys over there, you make mistakes, they make you pay", Hurdle said. He's walked one batter in 42 innings this season and has thrown two complete games.

Dodgers: LHP Julio Urias (0-0, 0.84) will be looking for his first decision in his third start of the season.
