LOS ANGELES (AP) – Hyun-Jin Ryu earned his first major league victory, shrugging off a two-run homer in the first inning by Andrew McCutchen and pitching the Los Angeles Dodgers past the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-2 Sunday for a three-game sweep.

Adrian Gonzalez drove in four runs with three hits and Justin Sellers homered for the Dodgers.

Ryu (1-1) allowed two runs and three hits in 6 1-3 innings, striking out six and walking two. The 26-year-old lefty from South Korea signed a $36 million, six-year contract with the Dodgers in December after they bid $25.7 million to win exclusive rights to negotiate with him.

Jeff Locke (0-1) lost in his season debut, giving up four runs and eight hits over six innings.
