The Dodgers are coming off a sweep of the Braves, but there is one thing that they are missing: a win against the Braves.
The Dodgers are 1-1 in their past four home games against the Atlanta Braves.
That includes a 2-1 win in Atlanta on Sunday.
The Dodgers’ lone win against Atlanta came on July 28, when the Dodgers defeated the Braves 4-2.
Lately, the Dodgers have been playing better, though, with a 2.06 ERA.
They are 6-1 on the road this season, including 5-1 at home.
The Braves are 8-2 overall and 5-2 at home, including a 4-0 mark on the Road.
The Braves are in the midst of a five-game winning streak after losing seven of their last eight.
Lorenzo Cain hit a solo home run to lead off the fourth inning, and Nelson Cruz followed with a three-run homer to right-center field to give the Braves a 3-2 lead.
Cain’s homer was his fifth of the season, tying him for the team lead.
The next batter was the next to walk, as the Braves tied the game in the bottom of the ninth.
Canaes RBI single to left-center was his first of the year, but it was his sixth of the day.
That led to the Braves scoring a run on their next three hits.
The Atlanta Braves scored their first run of the game with a two-run single by Nick Markakis to center field.
The game then went to extra innings, as Atlanta had three runners on base, two of them scoring in the ninth inning.
Cano and Markakis both got their first hits in the top of the 10th.
Cabrera and Cruz both hit back-to-back singles to give Atlanta a 6-3 lead.
Cano’s solo homer off Braves starter Brad Boxberger gave the Braves the lead, 3-1.
The top of that inning was a two run, two-out inning, when Cano singled and drove in two runs.
Markakis followed with an RBI single that tied the score at 4-4.
After the inning, Cano struck out a batter in the fourth to make it 5-4 Braves.
The next batter walked, but Cano followed with his third home run of his career, a two strike double that was his fourth of the inning.
Cruz hit a two hit homer to center-field to give him four RBIs.
The final batter, Markakis, was called out on strike three for arguing a ball in play.
That would be the first time since August 8 that a Braves player was called for striking out in the inning when a player was on the bases.
The last time a player struck out on the basepaths was April 1, when Chris Carter was called on strike four for arguing the ball in the eighth inning.
The first batter to be called out was Adam LaRoche.
