Braves 3, Dodgers 2

ATLANTA -- Craig Kimbrel induced a double play to get out of a bases-loaded jam in the ninth inning as Atlanta ended a seven-game losing streak to Los Angeles.

Kimbrel walked pinch hitter Andre Ethier to start the ninth, and Dee Gordon beat out a bunt. Adrian Gonzalez singled with one out to load the bases, but Kimbrel got his 35th save in 39 chances when Matt Kemp hit into a double play.

Ervin Santana (12-6) allowed eight hits and two runs while winning his fifth consecutive decision. He struck out nine in six innings. Dodgers starter Hyun-Jin Ryu (13-6) left the game with two outs in the sixth inning when he strained his right gluteus muscle delivering a pitch
