The Braves got the offense going early. Outfielder Justin Upton doubled with one out in the top of the first inning against Dodgers starter Hyun-Jin Ryu. Evan Gattis promptly knocked him in with a line drive single to center, putting the Braves up 1-0. After getting ahead in the count 0-2 to Brian McCann, Ryu walked him, putting runners at first and second for Chris Johnson. Johnson promptly singled to center, plating Gattis to put the Braves up 2-0 before starter Julio Teheran threw a pitch.

Ryu drew some attention earlier in the week when he wore a compression sleeve and threw a bullpen in front of team surgeon Neal ElAttrache, medical director Stan Conte, and manager Don Mattingly. Ryu, however, insisted he was fine and wold make his Game 3 start without a problem.

In the bottom of the first, Teheran worked around a lead-off single to Carl Crawford and a subsequent wild pitch, logging his first two strikeouts of the night in the process.
