Dodgers Utilizing The 3-Run Bomb

The Dodgers were able to snap their five-game losing streak and win the last two days thanks to the help of a powerful weapon: the three-run home run.  James Loney hit a three run shot in Friday's game, and Andre Ethier did the deed last night.  The Dodgers' three-run home runs the last two nights have come in the third inning, an inning in which the Pirates have been outscored this year a whopping 32 to seven.

The Dodgers have hit four three-run shots this season, and have won three of those games.  The only one they lost was in Cincinnati, where Matt Kemp's three-run shot tied the game at nine, but the Dodgers went on to lose 11-9.
