The Dodgers stormed out to an early 2-0 lead against Freddy Garcia behind a pair of solo homers from Carl Crawford, but the Braves are fighting back against Clayton Kershaw. With an assist from the Dodgers’ defense, anyway.
After Freddie Freeman singled to lead off the top of the fourth inning, Adrian Gonzalez made a throwing error on a grounder from Evan Gattis. Kershaw then threw a wild pitch which allowed Freeman and Gattis to move up a base. The southpaw recovered to strike out Brian McCann looking, but then he gave up a run-scoring single to Chris Johnson. The Braves tied it after Andrelton Simmons hit what appeared to be a double-play grounder, but Mark Ellis made a wide throw to Gonzalez at first base. This inning will not go on the Dodgers’ highlight reel for the season.
We’re headed to the top of the fifth inning at Dodger Stadium with the score tied at 2-2.
