ATLANTA, GA - AUGUST 17: Juan Francisco #25 of the Atlanta Braves rounds first base after knocking in the game-winning run with a pich hit single in the 11th inning against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Turner Field on August 17, 2012 in Atlanta, Georgia. (Photo by Scott Cunningham/Getty Images)
Things stayed at that score until the sixth, when Los Angeles finally got to Tommy Hanson. Mark Ellis doubled to left field to start, and scored two batters later when Hanson threw a horrible slider to Andre Ethier. Ethier crushed it to right field, and his 12th home run of the year gave the Dodgers a 2-1 lead.
The Dodgers chased Hanson in the seventh, as Luis Cruz doubled to start, and scored on a Shane Victorino double two batters later. That made the game a 3-1 score. The final line on Hanson was 6.2 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 2 BB, 5 K.
Atlanta finally chased Capuano in the eighth, but it was a fantastic start for the soft-tossing lefty. Back-to-back singles and a sacrifice bunt from Michael Bourn (not the biggest fan of that decision) put runners on second and third. That was the end of the night for Capuano, sporting a final line of 7.1, 5 H, 3 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 8 K.
With tonight's win, Atlanta moves to a season best 21-games over .500 with a record of 70-49.
