Freese's grand slam powers Dodgers by Pirates 10-2

PITTSBURGH (AP) David Freese stepped into the batter's box, heard the polite applause from the crowd at a ballpark he once called home and was surprised when the familiar strains of Tool's "Stinkfist" blasted through the speakers at PNC Park.

The Pittsburgh Pirates played the song as a token of respect for the veteran infielder, who spent two-plus seasons in black-and-gold before being traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers last summer. Freese took in the moment and relaxed. But only briefly. The cheers that greeted him Friday night were quickly replaced by a groan after he turned on a Michael Feliz fastball for a first-inning grand slam that powered the Dodgers to a lopsided 10-2 win.

"They played my walk-up song, maybe that's why I'm pumped," Freese said. "It fired me up."
