Dodgers win big vs. Braves in Game 3 NLDS
LOS ANGELES, California (USA) - Los Angeles Dodgers trailed 2-0 after the first inning on Sunday, but then scored ten runs from the second inning on to win 13-6 vs. Atlanta Braves in Game 3 of the National League Division Series to take a 2-1 lead. The Dodgers collected 14 basehits, including three by Hanley Ramirez and Yasiel Puig.

In the first inning, Atlanta took an early 2-0 lead off of Korean starter Hyun-Jin Ryu. With one out, the lefthander gave up a double to Justin Upton, then an RBI-single with two outs to Evan Gattis. Hereafter, Brian McCann walked and Chris Johnson added an RBI-single that made it 2-0. With runners on first and second base, Ryu ended the inning when Andrelton Simmons popped out.

The Dodgers then reacted with a 4-run second inning off of starter Julio Teheran. Yasiel Puig and Juan Uribe began the at bat with singles, then A.J. Ellis walked with one out to load the bases. Hereafter, Hyun-Jin Ryu hit a sacrifice fly to bring in the first run and Carl Crawford followed with a 3-run homerun that gave the Dodgers a 4-2 lead.

Atlanta came alongside in the next inning. The bases got loaded when Justin Upton, Freddie Freeman and Evan Gattis all singled to start the inning. Gattis was then forced out on a grounder by Brian McCann, but that enabled Upton to score. Next, Chris Johnson hit a fielder's choice-grounder to Ryu, but no out was recorded and Freeman scored the tying run. With runners on first and second base and one out, Andrelton Simmons came to bat again, but this time grounded into a double play.

In the bottom of the third, the Dodgers re-took the lead immediately. Hanley Ramirez led off with a double and scored when Adrian Gonzalez followed with a single. The latter was then forced out on a grounder by Puig, who moved to second base on a throwing error. With two outs, the Cuban scored on a single by Skip Schumaker. A single by A.J. Ellis followed, then Michael Young was inserted as pinch-hitter for Ryu, which led to a pitching change. New pitcher Alex Wood began with a wild pitch that moved the runners to second and third base, but then struckout Young to end the inning.

The Dodgers then got another 4-run rally in the fourth inning. All runs were unearned, as lead-off hitter Carl Crawford reached on an error by Wood. After a flyout, Hanley Ramirez tripled to bring in Crawford, followed by a strikeout. Ramirez then scored on a single by Yasiel Puig, which was followed by a homerun by Juan Uribe that made it 10-4.

In the eighth inning, the Dodgers added three more runs on RBI-singles by Ramirez, Gonzalez and Puig. Atlanta managed to score two runs of its own in the top of the ninth inning on a 2-run homerun by Jason Heyward, but ended up empty-handed.
