PITTSBURGH (AP) - Shane Victorino hit his 10th homer of the season and drove in three runs to lift the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 5-4 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday night.

Matt Kemp added two hits for the Dodgers, who moved within 1½ games of the Pirates for one of the two National League wild card spots. Aaron Harang (8-7) pitched six effective innings to snap a modest two-game losing streak while Kenley Jansen worked a perfect ninth for his 24th save.

Victorino, acquired in a trade from Philadelphia two weeks ago, hit his first homer in a Dodgers uniform in the fifth. The two-run shot off Jeff Karstens (4-3) broke a 2-2 tie as Los Angeles beat the Pirates for the seventh straight time.

Garrett Jones had four hits and drove in all three Pirate runs. Pittsburgh has dropped four of five.
