Dodgers top Braves 2-1 on walk-off wild pitch

Stephen Dunn

Tied 1-1 in the bottom of the 10th inning with runners on first and third, Atlanta reliever Anthony Varvaro's curveball bounced away from catcher Evan Gattis, allowing Skip Schumaker to come into score and clinch the win for the Dodgers.

This happened after a heck of a pitchers duel between Hyun-Jin Ryu and Paul Maholm kept the game in a 1-1 tie for nine innings. Ryu allowed just six hits and one run while walking one and striking out six. Maholm gave up just four hits and one (earned) run in 7.1 innings of work.

The Braves tallied their only run in the top of the fourth inning as Freddie Freeman led off with a double, advanced to third on a groundout, and scored on a rbi single by Dan Uggla to make it a 1-0 game.

Atlanta's big controversy came in the top of the tenth inning when Jason Heyward doubled with two outs against Brandon League to bring up Justin Upton. Upton hit a little dribbler in front of the plate, but clearly beat the the throw to first base. However, CB Bucknor had other ideas, ruling Upton out on an absolutely awful call at the bag.

The Dodgers tied the game up in the bottom of the sixth thanks to Yasiel Puig's fourth home run of the season, a solo shot to left field off Maholm.
