LA DODGERS: LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Dodgers have spent big bucks on their roster, ramping up World Series expectations right along with the payroll. Now they want to produce results.
They'll get the chance starting Saturday in Australia, where they open the season against NL West rival Arizona.
With a payroll in the range of $225 million-plus, the Dodgers have laid the groundwork to get to their first World Series title since 1988, when they won the title. They came up short last year, losing to St. Louis in six games in the NL championship series.
''The expectations going in this time are realistic. We're a talented club and we're capable,'' said manager Don Mattingly, who signed a three-year extension in January.
The Dodgers want to avoid the poor start they had last season, when key players were injured and the team had to rally to get back into the division race. They eventually won the title by 11 games over the Diamondbacks.
''We need to be more consistent,'' Mattingly said. ''I see it as winning every series and you'll be in pretty good shape. The next thing you know, you're 20 games over .500.''
First baseman Adrian Gonzalez is looking to follow up his strong season last year, while shortstop Hanley Ramirez, who was injured in the NL championship series, will be playing to set himself up for impending free agency.
PITTSBURGH: PITTSBURGH (AP) - The roars have faded. The giddiness of ending 21 years of futility and coming with a game of the National League championship series, too.
The Pittsburgh Pirates are in some ways just another NL contender these days. That dark cloud of two decades of losing is gone after a remarkable 94-68 surge and the playoff berth that came along with it in 2013.
Now the franchise needs to figure out what to do with the rest of its life. For three seasons a club that was a laughingstock when manager Clint Hurdle took over in December 2010 has slowly made inroads to relevance.
Suddenly, the ''World Series or bust'' attitude owner Bob Nutting has espoused for years doesn't seem so laughable anymore.
Press reigning NL Manager of the Year Clint Hurdle on what his team can possibly do for an encore despite a relatively quiet offseason and he responds with his usual eternal optimism.
''Excellence is verb, not a noun,'' Hurdle said. ''You're going to continue to push forward. Our goal is to win a sixth world championship. The fact is, we haven't won an LCS or a division series. We need to maintain our focus on the things we need to do.''

*Dodgers-Pirates Preview* =========================


Los Angeles (56-45) at Pittsburgh (52-47), 7:05 p.m. EDT

If the Pittsburgh Pirates plan on making another run at the postseason, they'll likely need a lot more from Francisco Liriano than what he gave them in the first half.

His outing against the Los Angeles Dodgers was a rare exception.

After a solid start coming out of the All-Star break, Liriano will try to deliver another promising performance Wednesday night against the only team he's beaten in 16 starts this season.

Liriano (1-7, 4.43 ERA) won nine of his 12 starts prior to last season's break with a 2.00 ERA on his way to winning NL Comeback Player of the Year, but as has been the case throughout his career, he's failing to put together back-to-back good seasons.

He was headed for more trouble Friday against Colorado, but escaped a bases-loaded jam in the first and got through the same situation in the second while allowing just one unearned run. The left-hander didn't surrender a hit over his final three innings, finishing with eight strikeouts before the Pirates (53-47) rallied for a 4-2 victory.

"When I started hitting my spot with my fastball in, things started to get better," Liriano said.

Liriano has the NL's worst walk rate (4.98 per nine innings) of anyone to log 80 innings, but he was mostly hitting his spots at Chavez Ravine on May 30. He held the Dodgers (56-46) to five hits and two walks over 5 2-3 scoreless, striking out eight in a 2-1 victory that remains his only one since the 2013 wild-card game.

Tuesday's contest at PNC Park was tilted more toward the offenses. Neil Walker and Ike Davis homered in the second inning, and rookie Gregory Polanco went deep in the third before delivering the go-ahead two-run single in the sixth as the Pirates won 12-7.

"The thing that's been impressive with him is he hasn't changed anything," Walker said of Polanco, who entered the night in a 6-for-45 slump. "He hasn't tried to go up there and force the issue and hack away at the first thing he sees. Tonight was one of those nights he trusted his eyes and he trusted himself in a huge spot in a huge game and got a big hit for us."

In the middle of Pittsburgh's four-run sixth, Los Angeles reliever Jamey Wright hit Andrew McCutchen. When Justin Wilson drilled the Dodgers' Justin Turner to lead off the seventh, he was ejected, as was manager Clint Hurdle.

Pittsburgh batters have been hit more than any in baseball (58), and Pirates pitchers also lead the majors in hitting opposing batters (56).

Dan Haren (8-7, 4.30) isn't hitting anyone, but everyone seems to be hitting him. The right-hander is 0-3 with a 9.64 ERA in July, allowing 24 hits in 14 innings.

"The last two years I've had spots where I really struggled and I was able to get through them. I just have to look at that," Haren told MLB's official website after giving up three runs and eight hits over 4 2-3 innings in Friday's 3-2 loss at St. Louis. "... I've had a couple tough ones in a row. I've got to give us a better chance to win like I was the majority of the season."

Haren is second in the NL with 20 homers allowed and has given up two in each of his last three starts against Pittsburgh, going 0-2 with a 6.62 ERA. Russell Martin and Pedro Alvarez, who exited Tuesday's game with left knee discomfort, took him deep May 29.

Yasiel Puig missed his third straight game and Hanley Ramirez his second in a row with wrist injuries. Both are day to day.
