Braves 2, Dodgers 1

Clayton Kershaw allowed two hits through seven scoreless frames, striking out 10. But the Dodgers, who watched Guillermo Mota allow a pair in the 10th, were blanked until the bottom of the frame, when Andre Ethier hit an RBI double. But Matt Kemp was robbed of a game-tying hit in L.A.'s second straight extra-inning loss.
