Dodgers beat Pirates with Yasiel Puig's solo homer in 12th inning

Yasiel Puig rescued the Dodgers from an interminable night of extra innings, and took Pedro Baez off the hook for a wretched outing, in a 6-5 victory over the Pirates on Monday.

Puig hit a solo homer of Pittsburgh reliever Dovydas Neverauskas to break a tie in the 12th inning.

Granderson hammered a hanging slider from Pittsburgh starter Gerrit Cole onto the concourse in center field to complete a five-run inning.

The blast provided cover for Alex Wood , who gave up three runs, on a trio of homers, in six innings.

Cody Bellinger’s sprained right ankle remained swollen Monday, two days after the Dodgers rookie injured it while making a leaping catch at the outfield wall at Detroit.
