Josh Palacios hit a go-ahead, two-run double in the ninth inning and the visiting Pittsburgh Pirates rallied for a 9-7 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday

Rookie Jared Triolo had a game-tying single in the ninth as the Pirates ended a three-game losing streak and improved to 3-2 against the Dodgers this season. Pittsburgh rookie Nick Gonzales had three hits for his third consecutive multi-hit game, and Jack Suwinski hit a home run

Rookie James Outman hit two home runs, driving in four, for the Dodgers, while rookie Jonny Deluca also went deep. Mookie Betts also hit a home run for Los Angeles, which lost for the third time in four games

Deluca’s first career home run, in his 17th game, put the Dodgers ahead 7-6 in the eighth inning. Outman delivered his third multi-homer game of the season and Betts reached base four times

In a game started by a pair of rookies, Pirates right-hander Luis Ortiz gave up six runs on nine hits over 3 1/3 innings, while Dodgers right-hander Emmet Sheehan gave up five runs on four hits and four walks over 3 2/3 innings

Outman’s first home run of the game was a two-run shot in the second inning; two batters later, Betts went deep, his 23rd homer of the season, to put Los Angeles up 4-2.

After the Pirates jumped in front 5-4 in a three-run fourth inning that included Suwinski’s 442-foot home run, Outman hit his second two-run blast of the game to give the Dodgers a 6-5 lead

The Pirates pulled even 6-6 in the sixth inning on an RBI single from Henry Davis

Pittsburgh All-Star right-hander David Bednar (3-0) recorded the final five outs to earn the victory. Bednar was named as an All-Star Game replacement Tuesday for Dodgers left-hander Clayton Kershaw

Dodgers right-hander Evan Phillips (1-3) gave up three runs in the ninth inning for his second blown save. Phillips was pitching in a third consecutive game for the first time in his career
