Steve Yeager and Davey Lopes hit two-run homers off Dock Ellis with two out in the sixth inning to power the Dodgers to a 6-2 victory over the Pirates. Ellis, who was stopped on his eight-game winning streak, yielded the Dodgers' initial run in the third on a single by Bill Buckner and two-out double by Willie Crawford.

With two away in the sixth, Bill Russell singled and Yeager homered. Don Sutton then walked and Lopes also hit for the circuit. The Dodgers added their last run in the seventh on a single by Steve Garvey, double by Ron Cey and sacrifice fly by Yeager. The Pirates disposed of Sutton with a run in the ninth on a single by Manny Sanguillen, pass to Ed Kirkpatrick and single by Paul Popovich. Mike Marshall relieved and forced in a run by walking Richie Hebner with the bases loaded before Al Oliver lined into a double play to end the game. [The Sporting News]
