Dodgers 4, Braves 2

ATLANTA — Dan Haren pitched six solid innings and sparked the go-ahead rally with a single, leading the Dodgers to another win over the skidding Braves, 4-2 on Tuesday night.

Haren surrendered a fourth-inning homer to B.J. Upton that put the Braves up 2-1, but the light-hitting pitcher came through with a one-out single to right in the fifth. Carl Crawford followed with a double, and Haren scored the tying run on Yasiel Puig's grounder to third.

Matt Kemp hit a little blooper to right that just got over the glove of second baseman Tommy La Stella, bringing home Crawford.

That was enough for the Dodgers.

Mike Minor matched his longest outing of the past month after being skipped his previous turn in the rotation. The Atlanta left-hander went 62/3 innings.

The Braves lost for the 11th time in their past 13 games, including two straight to the Dodgers.

With Los Angeles up 1-0, Upton homered deep into leftfield seats. It was his sixth career homer off the Dodgers right-hander; Upton has no more than three homers against anyone else.

Minor went into the game with a 5.42 ERA.
