PITTSBURGH (AP) - Josh Harrison had two hits with two RBIs and the Pittsburgh Pirates jumped on Dan Haren early in a 6-1 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Wednesday night.
Harrison's two-run double down the left field line capped a four-run outburst in the first against Haren (8-8).
Pittsburgh has won five of six since the All-Star break to move a season-high seven games over .500 (54-47).
Travis Snider added two hits, including his fifth homer, for the Pirates. Francisco Liriano (2-7) allowed one run on four hits over seven innings to pick up his first victory since May 30.
Pittsburgh batted around in the first against Haren, who has lost four consecutive starts.
The right-hander settled down to get through five innings but the Dodgers could do little against Liriano.
Los Angeles didn't collect a hit until Miguel Rojas doubled with one out in the fifth and never threatened as Liriano put together his best start of the year.
