Carl Crawford and Juan Uribe both hit home runs for the Los Angeles Dodgers and Hanley Ramirez finished a home run shy of the cycle, helping the home team win 13-6 over the Atlanta Braves in Game 3 of the NLDS.
Chris Johnson plated Gattis later in the inning with another single.
The Dodgers took their first lead of the game in the bottom of the second. Yasiel Puig and Uribe led off the inning with back-to-back singles, and A.J. Ellis loaded the bases with a one-out walk. Hyun-Jin Ryu drove in a run with a sacrifice fly before Crawford launched a three-run bomb against Julio Teheran:
Atlanta tied the game with two more runs in the top of the third. Upton, Freddie Freeman and Gattis began the inning with three consecutive singles, then Brian McCann drove in Upton with a fielder's choice to third. It could have been a double play, but Ryu missed the bag covering first.
Johnson drove in another run in the inning on a groundball back to Ryu; the pitcher made a late throw to Ellis instead of taking the sure out at first, allowing Freeman to score.
Los Angeles regained the lead with two runs in the bottom half of the inning. Ramirez led off the frame with a triple, scoring on an Adrian Gonzalez single. Skip Schumaker added a two-out RBI-single latter in the inning, driving in Puig from second.
Teheran was chased from the game during the top of the third. The Braves rookie lasted 2 2/3 innings, surrendering six runs on eight hits. The right-hander flashed some electric stuff, striking out five, but made numerous mistakes to Dodgers' hitters, and they did not miss the mistakes.
Ryu only worked three innings before being lifted for a pinch-hitter. The southpaw allowed four runs on six hits, striking out one.
The Dodgers blew the game open with a four-run bottom of the fourth. Crawford led off the inning with a drag bunt single against Alex Wood, scoring on a Ramirez triple:
Puig plated Ramirez with a RBI single, then Uribe crushed a two-run homer to right field, driving in runs nine and ten for Los Angeles:
Chris Capuano replaced Ryu, tossing three no-hit innings in relief of the starter to earn the victory. J.P. Howell tossed 1 1/3 scoreless innings after Capuano, receiving some aid from Crawford on a foul ball in the top of the eighth:
Wood ended up surrendering four runs on three hits over 2 1/3 innings. Luis Ayala worked a scoreless sixth, and Jordan Walden followed with a scoreless seventh before running into trouble in the eighth.
Walden started the inning hitting A.J. Ellis on the elbow. Mark Ellis drew a two-out walk against Walden, followed by a Ramirez RBI-single, his third hit of the game. Gonzalez pulled Walden, bringing in Luis Avilan to face Gonzalez for the final out of the eighth.
Gonzalez and Puig hit back-to-back singles, driving in runs 12 and 13. That matched the Dodgers' franchise-record for runs in a playoff game, and chased Avilan from the game. David Hale became the sixth Braves pitched to enter the game, recording an Uribe groundout to end the eighth.
Ronald Belisario recorded the last two outs of the eighth inning for the Dodgers, and Paco Rodriguez recorded two outs in the ninth. Jason Heyward did blast a two-run bomb off Rodriguez in the last frame:
Rodriguez allowed a walk and a single following the Heyward homer, causing Don Mattingly to bring in Kenley Jansen for the final out of the game.
Crawford, Ramirez, Puig, Gonzalez and Uribe all had multi-hit games for the Dodgers, who had every starter reach base safely.
Los Angeles will attempt to wrap up the NLDS Monday night. Ricky Nolasco will start the game for the home team, facing Freddy Garcia. First pitch is scheduled for 9:37 p.m. ET, with coverage coming on TBS.
