PITTSBURGH — Justin Turner hit two home runs and the Los Angeles Dodgers got 7 1/3 scoreless innings from their bullpen in a rain-delayed 2-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates. 

Turner belted a 409-foot drive to the visitors' bullpen in center field in the first inning. Then he broke a 1-all tie in the third with a solo shot to left field. It was the 11th multi-homer game of Turner’s career. He has 11 home runs this season. 

Five relievers blanked the Pirates after starter Tony Gonsolin failed to make it through the second inning in his season debut.

The teams will complete their series today at 12:35 p.m.
