PITTSBURGH (AP) — Josh Bell has homered in consecutive games following three days off. He doesn’t think it’s a coincidence.“I was able to kind of reflect a little bit http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authentic-john-smoltz-jersey ,” Bell said. “Take a step back, watch some baseball, get some work done in the cages and get back to the basics.”The switch-hitting first baseman combined with Ivan Nova, who got his first victory in a month, to help the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Miami Marlins 5-1 Saturday for their fifth consecutive win.In a game played in a steady drizzle, Bell connected off Brett Graves leading off the sixth for his 10th home run, down from 26 last year when he finished third in the NL Rookie of the Year voting. Before his home run Friday, Bell had not driven in a run since Aug. 11.Manager Clint Hurdle did not play Bell on Tuesday or Wednesday against Cincinnati, and the Pirates were off Thursday.“Just like everybody else, we’ve had a sit down and talked about finishing strong, putting some staples on this season and building some momentum toward next year,” Hurdle said.Nova (8-9) gave up three hits in six innings, struck out nine and walked three. He had lost three straight starts since beating San Francisco on Aug. 9 and had missed his previous turn for an undisclosed reason.“I was doing my workouts while I was away,” Nova said. “I’m a professional athlete and I was taking care of my business to make sure I was still ready to pitch.”Nova improved his career record against the Marlins to 4-0.“He’s handcuffed us pretty much every time we’ve seen him over the last couple of years,” Miami manager Don Mattingly said.Pittsburgh at 71-71 reached .500 for the first time since before play on Aug. 21.“Winning matters every day but, yeah, I think we would all like to finish the season strong,” Hurdle said.Wei-Yin Chen (6-10) allowed three runs and five hits in four innings Matt Kemp Jersey , dropping to 1-7 with a 9.13 ERA in 11 road starts. He is 5-3 with a 1.77 ERA in 12 home outings.Chen said he did not a good feel for the ball in the wet conditions.“It’s the command. Maybe it’s the weather, it’s the rain, but as a player, that’s what you have to overcome,” Chen said. “That’s not a reason you can say, ‘because it’s the rain.’ As a player, you have to be able to pitch in the rain.”Jose Osuna doubled leading off the second and scored on Kevin Newman’s single. The Pirates took a 3-0 lead in the fourth when Jacob Stallings had a two-out RBI single and center fielder Lewis Brinson allowed the ball to bounce past him for an error that let Jose Osuna score from first.Starling Marte hit an RBI double in the seventh off Elieser Hernandez.Miguel Rojas scored on Nick Kingham’s wild pitch in the eighth for already eliminated Miami, who dropped to 56-68.TRAINER’S ROOMMarlins: Mattingly said the team hopes RHP Dan Straily (strained left oblique) will make his next scheduled start. Straily left in the fifth inning Friday. … SS JT Riddle (sore left wrist) missed his fifth straight game but took indoor batting practice.Pirates: RF Gregory Polanco (bone bruise in left knee) will miss the remainder of the season. He was forced from Friday’s game in the sixth inning following an awkward slide into second base on a double.UP NEXTMarlins: RHP Jeff Brigham (0-1, 9.00 ERA) will make his second start Sunday after giving up three runs in three innings against Toronto in his major league debut Sept. 2.Pirates: RHP Trevor Williams (12-9, 3.15) is 6-2 with a 0.66 ERA in his last nine starts, allowing just four runs in 54 2/3 innings. LOS ANGELES (AP) — Matt Kemp has had a lot of big hits for the Dodgers in his career. Traded back to them this season, he’s regaining his rhythm offensively in the heat of a pennant race.Kemp slugged a go-ahead, two-strike, three-run homer in the eighth inning, lifting Los Angeles to a 3-2 victory over Arizona and a tie atop the NL West with the Diamondbacks on Saturday night.“Coming into September, we know what every game means,” he said. “I don’t think they’re going to quit, so we got to be just as good.”With the sellout crowd of 52 http://www.bravesfanproshop.com/authentic-hank-aaron-jersey ,394 on its feet chanting “Let’s go Dodgers,” Kemp took two quick strikes from Archie Bradley before launching his 19th homer into center field for a 3-2 lead.“That was really fun to watch,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said.Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said, “These kinds of games is what makes baseball great.”Kemp is hitting .310 with five runs, two homers and six RBIs in 13 games since Aug. 15.Justin Turner got the rally going with one out in the inning. He singled for the Dodgers’ first hit since his double in the third. Manny Machado followed with a 10-pitch walk by Bradley to set up Kemp.“Biggest hit of the year so far,” starter Clayton Kershaw said of Kemp’s homer. “J.T. fights off a tough pitch to shoot it through the hole and Manny fights off that at-bat. It was an awesome comeback win for us.”Bradley (4-5) was leading the National League in holds with 31 before Kemp’s homer.“I threw a really bad curveball to a really good hitter,” Bradley said. “It was supposed to be down and away but I left it over the plate.”Kenta Maeda (8-8) worked a perfect eighth. Kenley Jansen put the tying run on in the ninth. The All-Star closer gave up a two-out double to Nick Ahmed before Ketel Marte popped up to second, giving Jansen his 34th save in 38 opportunities. Enrique Hernandez got the first out of the ninth on a stellar play. He made a diving stop on David Peralta’s grounder and threw from his back to first baseman Cody Bellinger just in time.“You can plug him anywhere and he’s going to make big plays,” Lovullo said.Neither team has won by more than two runs in the first three homer-heavy games of the series. Turner’s homer leading off the eighth gave the Dodgers a 3-2 victory on Friday. The D’Backs won the opener 3-1 on Peralta’s three-run shot.“This is a tough loss, but we didn’t lose a playoff game,” Bradley said. “One game does not define this team.”Arizona led 2-0 after Eduardo Escobar and pinch-hitter Christian Walker led off innings by homering on first pitches from Kershaw. Escobar went deep to left field in the second. Walker, hitting for starter Patrick Corbin, landed one in left-center for his second career pinch-hit homer off Kershaw.In between Arizona’s two homers, Kershaw retired 12 consecutive batters. The left-hander gave up two runs and four hits in seven innings, struck out three and walked none.The Dodgers struck out 13 times, including six in a row over the fifth, sixth and seventh innings. Corbin retired the side in the fifth, striking out the last two batters. Yoshihisa Hirano relieved him and struck out the side in the sixth Deion Sanders Jersey , while Brad Ziegler struck out pinch-hitter Bellinger to open the seventh.Corbin allowed three hits, struck out seven and walked one. The Dodgers have struck out 31 times in Corbin’s four starts against them this season and he’s limited hitters to a .125 average.Arizona’s Paul Goldschmidt singled in the sixth to reach base in his club-record 44th straight road game.TRAINER’S ROOMD-backs: 3B Jake Lamb (left shoulder contusion) recently had surgery to repair fraying in the rotator cuff and is done for the season. He’s expected to be ready by spring training.Dodgers: Reinstated LHP Zac Rosscup (left calf strain) and INF Chase Utley (left wrist inflammation) from the 10-day disabled list.DODGERS DEBUTInfielder David Freese made his debut after being traded to LA from the Pirates a night earlier. He reached base safely in two of three plate appearances, going 1-for-2 with a hit by pitch.SEPTEMBER CALL-UPSThe Dodgers recalled INF-C Kyle Farmer, INF-OF Tim Locastro and OF Andrew Toles and Alex Verdugo from Triple-A Oklahoma City.Farmer returns for his second stint in LA after appearing in 32 games and hitting .238. As a pinch-hitter for the Dodgers, he’s batting .375. Locastro has appeared eight games with LA, the last time on May 13. At OKC, he has hit .279.
