Kenta Maeda returned from the 10-day injured list and earned his sixth victory of the season, after the Los Angeles Dodgers completed a sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates with an 11-7 win on Sunday.

Maeda (6-2) allowed three runs while striking out four over five innings at PNC Park, as the Dodgers' offense turned out a three-run fifth and a six-run sixth to overwhelm the hosts.

"I think the game was better than the result of giving up three runs," Maeda said. "I didn't feel any different (than before going on the injured list) and I was able to throw with good sense. I'm just out of throwing power now."
