Offense remains at a premium in Atlanta on Friday.
The Atlanta Braves hold a 2-1 lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 2 of the National League Division Series on Friday.
Chris Johnson broke a 1-1 tie with a two-out run-scoring single in the bottom of the fourth, driving in Freddie Freeman, who led off the inning with a double. Both teams went down quietly in the fifth, but the Dodgers built a scoring threat in the top of the sixth.
Hanley Ramirez doubled with one out and Yasiel Puig hit an infield single two batters later, but Juan Uribe struck out swinging with runners at the corners and two outs to end the Dodgers' rally.
Braves starter Mike Minor has scattered seven hits and issued a walk while notching five strikeouts in six innings. Zack Greinke has given up four hits and struck out three.
