The Dodgers had tied it at 3 by then, finally getting to Pirates starter Ross Ohlendorf in the top of the inning after he limited them to one single over the first four innings.
Russell Martin, dropped back to eighth in the order after batting second on Monday, began the inning with a drive into the right-field seats for the Dodgers' first homer of the season. After third baseman Andy LaRoche threw wildly on Furcal's grounder and Furcal stole second, Kemp doubled in a run and Ethier tied it with a run-scoring single.
NOTES: Manager Joe Torre plans to rest Ramirez during Thursday afternoon's game, although the Dodgers were off Tuesday. ... The Dodgers were 24-7 in Pittsburgh since PNC Park opened until losing five of their last six there. ... The crowd of 31,061, drawn partly by 80-degree weather and a $1 ticket promotion, was the Pirates' largest for their second home game since 36,048 turned out in 2002.
