LOS ANGELES -- Nobody wanted to be left out Saturday, as the first seven hitters in the Los Angeles Dodgers lineup had multihit games, with Joc Pederson leading the way with a home run, double and single.The Dodgers, who lead the majors in batting average and slugging percentage since the All-Star break, combined 17 hits and a pair of successful challenges for an 8-4 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.Were just grinding as a team, putting together quality at-bats, Pederson said. Weve been hitting balls hard for a while now. It was nice to get a game where everybody got a benefit from it.The offense has been swinging the bat really well, he said. The bullpen has been doing really well. Weve just been playing good baseball. We have to keep building on that.The Dodgers hit five doubles and used three Pittsburgh errors to win a game that did not see a 1-2-3 inning until the bottom of the eighth.Pederson had his 17th homer, a two-run shot. Corey Seager also three hits and an RBI as Los Angeles overcame a 3-1 deficit by scoring in each of the first six innings.Relievers Josh Fields, Julio Urias (3-2), Joe Blanton, Pedro Baez, Josh Ravin and Kenley Jansen combined to hold Pittsburgh to one run over 7 1/3 innings. Jansen got his 35th save.A starter in his 10 previous appearances, Urias came with two outs in the third, and pitched 2 2/3 innings of scoreless relief.Its a huge win for us, Pederson said. It didnt go the way we planned, but Julio stepped up big, and we were able to get some runs and win the ballgame.The Pirates, who had 10 hits to go with 11 walks, tied a franchise record by leaving 18 men on base. They left the bases loaded in the first and second innings.They were out there. We couldnt get them in, manager Clint Hurdle said. I dont think we were trying to do anything except fight, scratch, claw our way back into the game.Dodgers starter Brandon McCarthy was forced from the game in the second inning with right hip stiffness. He walked home runs in runs in both the first and second innings as he struggled with control for his second straight start.I just couldnt work through it. I think its more game intensity. In the bullpen I can get through it, he said. I need to take some time and get the body right. Ive got to get back physically to a good point. Whatever that takes, however long it takes.McCarthy walked five and hit one of the 13 batters he faced, throwing 29 of 51 pitches out of the strike zone.Gerrit Cole (7-8) gave up 12 hits and six runs in 4 1/3 innings.Jung Ho Kang hit his 12th home run and Francisco Cervelli had three hits for the Pirates. Pittsburgh had won 14 of 18 from the Dodgers before this loss.The Dodgers needed their second successful challenge -- and a 2:29 review -- to take a 6-3 lead in the fifth.Urias put down a sacrifice bunt to first baseman John Jaso, and Howie Kendrick broke home from third. Kendrick made a wide dive to avoid Cervellis sweeping tag, and plate umpire Jim Joyce called him out. The call was overturned on replay.The Dodgers tied it at 3 in the third thanks to a successful challenge and Kangs two errors on one play at third base.TRAINERS ROOMPirates: OF Starling Marte left the game in the eighth inning with upper back discomfort. ... Sidelined since July 2, C Chris Stewart (knee) began a rehab assignment Friday night at Double-A Altoona, catching seven innings. ...

"Its still the same cranky Phil.Michael van Gerwen retained his title at the Grand Slam of Darts after completing a comfortable 16-8 victory over James Wade in the final. The world No 1 quickly took command of the match after a sluggish start and reeled off five successive legs to secure another major trophy at the Civic Hall in Wolverhampton.Van Gerwen had recorded an average of over 111, the sixth highest in the tournaments history, during a semi-final win over Peter Wright and could not maintain those high standards against Wade. The Dutchman had defeated Peter Wright in the earlier semi-final Clinical finishing had been the deciding factor in Wades semi-final victory over Gary Anderson and he made an assured start in the final, rattling off a 112 checkout to open a 3-1 lead.But Wade spurned the chance to extend his lead and MVG drew level in a blur of green, powering through a 104 finish. James Wade let an early lead slip away Van Gerwen was not scoring with his normal intensity, but he gradually drained Wades confidence with his accuracy at the doubles and moved 8-5 up following a 94 finish.The wilting Wade could only watch as Van Gerwen extended his lead to 10-5 following an ice-cool 127 checkout.dddddddddddd Wade admitted he could not maintain his form after defeating Gary Anderson in the semis As Mighty Mike surged towards the finish line, Wade did delay him with a run of three legs in a row, which enlivened the partisan home crowd.But Van Gerwen soon extinguished any brief hopes of a fight back with a red-hot run of legs and sunk his arrow into double 16 to seal victory.
