NLDS Game 3, Braves vs. Dodgers score update: LA maintains 10-4 lead

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Spor

Chris Capuano has worked three scoreless innings in relief of Hyun-Jin Ryu.

The Los Angeles Dodgers maintained their lead over the Atlanta Braves during the middle innings, with the home team leading 10-4 entering the top of seventh.

Chris Capuano issued a leadoff walk to Freddie Freeman to start the inning, but forced a strikeout and two groundouts to cap off a scoreless top of the fifth.

Alex Wood stayed in the game for the Braves, working the first 1-2-3 inning for Atlanta in the bottom of the fifth. The southpaw recorded his second strikeout of the game against Carl Crawford to send the game into the sixth.

Capuano started the top of the sixth with another walk, this time issuing a free pass to Andrelton Simmons. The lefty erased the baserunner by forcing Elliot Johnson to ground into a double-play, then struck out B.J. Upton, who pinch-hit for Wood, to work his third straight scoreless inning.

Luis Ayala replaced Wood to start the top of the sixth. The right-hander worked around a one-out walk to Hanley Ramirez, striking out Mark Ellis and forcing Adrian Gonzalez to hit into an inning-ending double play.
