Kelly Johnson’s two-run homerun off of Guillermo Mota (3 - 3) in the tenth inning was the difference in the Atlanta Braves’ (57 - 54) second straight extra-inning victory against the Los Angeles Dodgers (67 - 44.)

The last two nights saw 22 frames played at Dodgers Stadium with no wins to show for the additional effort.

An offensive charge in the last of the tenth fell short when Matt Kemp’s liner up the middle made its way into the glove of Yunel Escobar in a definite SportsCenter highlight.

“I looked behind me and saw that [Yunel] Escobar made a great play, and unfortunately we didn't get the job done,” said Dodgers’ leftfielder Andre Ethier.
