A.J. Burnett took the mound on Thursday with a new ingredient in his repertoire. He had his usual fastball and knuckle curve, and he also had an attitude.

It isn't quite clear which did the Dodgers more harm, but the total package sparked the Pirates to a slump-interrupting 10-6 victory at PNC Park.

Burnett's chief accomplice was Garrett Jones, who hit two tiebreaking three-run homers, in the first and fifth innings.
