Atlanta Braves

ATLANTA (AP) – Yasmani Grandal doubled in the go-ahead run in the 10th inning and the Los Angeles Dodgers overcame a not-quite-overpowering performance by Clayton Kershaw, beating the Atlanta Braves 2-1 on Thursday.

Enrique Hernandez singled with one out against Alexi Ogando (1-1) and came around to score on Grandal’s shot off the center-field wall. Chris Hatcher (2-1) worked a scoreless ninth before Kenley Jansen earned his seventh save.

Coming off his first career save, Matt Wisler pitched four-hit ball over 6 2-3 innings for the Braves.

Both teams scored in the first, and that was it until Grandal gave the Dodgers their second straight extra-inning win over the Braves.

Kershaw came in with a 1.64 ERA. The Braves got to the three-time Cy Young winner for 10 hits in eight innings, only the fourth time in 246 career starts that he’s given up double figures. He struck out 10.
