ATLANTA (AP) -- Mike Minor pitched six strong innings, Jason Heyward
had a two-run single and the Atlanta Braves held on for a 4-3 victory
over the Los Angeles Dodgers to even their NL division series at one
The Braves turned three double plays, the most important coming to
end a Dodgers threat in the seventh with Atlanta clinging to a 2-1 lead.
Luis Avilan got it started by backhanding Carl Crawford's grounder to the mound.
Hanley Ramirez drove in all three Dodgers runs with a first-inning double and a two-run homer in the eighth.
Craig Kimbrel walked two in the ninth but fanned Crawford for the
save. Backup catcher Gerald Laird helped, too, throwing out pinch-runner
Dee Gordon trying to steal in a close play at second base.
Game 3 in the best-of-five series is Sunday at Dodger Stadium.
