Dudley contributed a big hit, a grand slam home run, for Pittsburgh in the top of the third. With his team trailing 2-0, Dudley took a fastball from Brandon Finnegan and stroked the home run to left. His 22nd home run of the season allowed the Pirates to leap in front, 4-2.

"I'm just happy to help the team win," Dudley told the Pittsburgh Daily News.
