Dodgers Beat Braves 3-1 To Avoid Sweep

On Wednesday, July 22th the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Atlanta Braves to avoid being swept. Dodgers pitcher Mike Bolsinger relied almost exclusively on his curveball, which frustrated the Braves enough into yelling that Bollinger wasn’t courageous enough to use his fastball. The Atlanta Braves got the first run of the game in the third inning when Cameron Maybin drove in a run with a groundout. Braves pitcher Julio Teheran struck out 7 of the first 10 batters he faced until running into problems in the fifth inning. Yasmani Grandal led off the inning with a double, then Alberto Callaspo singled driving in Grandal. Collaspo later scored on a double by Jimmy Rollins, who scored the final run of the inning off a Joc Pederson single. After walking Cameron Maybin to start the 9th inning, Kenley Jansen struck out Kelly Johnson, and Juan Uribe to end the game.
