Braves Use Five Run 3rd Inning Off Clayton Kershaw to Beat the Dodgers 6-4
ATLANTA (AP) – Ozzie Albies drove in the go-ahead run in a five-run third inning off Clayton Kershaw, Abraham Almonte got a pinch-hit homer off Blake Treinen in the seventh, and the Atlanta Braves beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-4. Braves starter Charlie Morton didn’t allow a hit until Cody Bellinger slapped the first of four consecutive singles to begin the fourth. Morton gave up four hits, four runs – two earned – with one walk and five strikeouts in five innings. Kershaw, the former NL MVP and a three-time Cy Young Award winner, lost to the Braves for the first time in 12 career regular-season starts.
