PITTSBURGH -- No matter what uniform he's wearing, Shane Victorino always gives the Pittsburgh Pirates trouble.

The newly acquired outfielder hit his first homer in Dodger blue and drove in three runs to lift Los Angeles to a 5-4 victory on Monday night.

Picked up from Philadelphia at the trade deadline to give the Dodgers an experienced bat as they try to make it back to the postseason for the first time in three years, Victorino was his usual pesky self at the top of the lineup as Los Angeles drew within 1 1/2 games of the Pirates for one of the two National League wild card spots.
