Atlanta drove in two runs with two outs in the top of the first inning, while Los Angles hung four runs on Julio Teheran in the bottom of the second.
The Atlanta Braves scored the first two runs of the game, but the Los Angeles Dodgers scored four in the bottom of the second to take a 4-2 lead through two innings.
Atlanta jumped on the scoreboard in the top of the first. Justin Upton cracked a one-out double against Hyun-Jin Ryu, and Evan Gattis plated Upton with a two-out single.
Brian McCann followed Gattis with a walk, then Chris Johnson delivered the second RBI-single of the inning, giving the Braves a 2-0 advantage.
Carl Crawford led off the bottom of the Dodgers inning with a single, advancing to second base on a Julio Teheran wild pitch. The rookie settled down after the error, retiring the next three batters to strand Crawford at second.
Ryu looked sharper in the second frame, retiring the Braves in order and recording his first strikeout of the game.
Teheran ran into trouble in the bottom of the second inning. Yasiel Puig and Juan Uribe led off the inning with singles, then A.J. Ellis drew a one-out walk to load the bases. Ryu smacked a sacrifice fly that nearly cleared Upton's head in right field, driving in Puig.
Crawford followed Ryu and crushed a mistake from Teheran to right field, giving the Dodgers a 4-2 advantage.
Teheran struck out Mark Ellis to end the inning, but not before coughing up a two-run lead.
