Tough loss to take

Dodgers 5, Pirates 4
Steve Pearce is greeted by Lastings Milledge after his second-inning homer. (Jae C. Hong/AP)
The Pirates' bullpen let one-run leads slip in the ninth and 13th innings as Andre Ethier's two-run shot finished off the Bucs. It spoiled Zach Duke's sterling effort: The lefty allowed just two runs on four hits in 7 1/3 innings and hit an RBI single in a three-run third.
