    McCutchen Hits 2 HRs as Pirates Beat Dodgers 6-1

    Andrew McCutchen homered twice, Jeff Locke took a perfect game into the sixth inning, and the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-1 Saturday night.

McCutchen raised his season total to 13 home runs with his 11th career multi-homer game — second this year. The nine-year veteran's batting average had dropped to .239 after going 9 for 49 (.184) with 16 strikeouts in his previous 13 games.
