Watch: Braves 3, Dodgers 1, a game in two highlights

With one out in the bottom of the first inning in Atlanta, Jason Heyward hit a drive to deep center field and Matt Kemp did this:

Thanks to that catch and  a fine performance by Chris Capuano, the lone run the Dodgers scored in the fourth held up until the bottom of the eighth when Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez sent Evan Gattis up to pinch-hit for his pitcher with one out and B.J. Upton on first base. Dodgers skipper Don Mattingly countered by replacing the left-handed Capuano with his right-handed relief ace Kenley Jansen.

Jansen fired eight straight fastballs at Gattis. Gattis took the first three to run the count to 2-1, missed the fourth, fouled off the next three. Then did this with the eighth:

Andrelton Simmons followed with a solo home run for an insurance run, Craig Kimbrel nailed down the save, and the Braves won 3-2. Ballgame.
