"With two outs there, if we get out of that inning, it's a whole different ballgame," Braves catcher Brian McCann said. "But it just didn't turn out the way we wanted. Carl hit a slider that hung up a little bit more than we wanted and he put a good swing on it."
The Dodgers regained the lead 6-4 in the third on RBI singles by Adrian Gonzalez and Skip Schumaker. Ryu was lifted for a pinch-hitter later in the inning.
Atlanta tied it 4-all with two runs in the third after loading the bases with nobody out.
The Dodgers scored four times in the second to take a 4-2 lead, highlighted by Crawford's three-run homer with two outs. Ryu helped himself with a bases-loaded sacrifice fly to right field — Justin Upton had to stretch out to keep the ball from going over his head.
