Dodgers rout Braves 13-6 to take 2-1 lead in NLDS
LA DODGERS 13, ATLANTA 6

By BETH HARRIS
AP Sports Writer

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The Dodgers fell behind early, took the lead,
and let Atlanta tie it up. Then their big hitters cut loose.

Carl Crawford hit a three-run homer, Juan Uribe added a two-run
shot and Los Angeles routed the Atlanta Braves 13-6 on Sunday
night for a 2-1 lead in the best-of-five NL division series.

Hanley Ramirez and Yasiel Puig each had three hits and scored
three times on a huge night at the plate for the Dodgers, who
matched a franchise record for runs in a postseason game.
Brooklyn beat the New York Yankees 13-8 in Game 2 of the 1956
World Series.

"It's 25 guys out there that we come here every day and we put
in hard work on the field," Ramirez said. "Everything I do, I do
for my team and for the city. When I see a big smile from my
teammates and my fans, that makes me happy."

After losing 4-3 in Game 2 to let the Braves even the series,
the Dodgers returned to the offensive form they showed during a
6-1 victory in the opener on the road.

"Guys were unhappy with the way they played, so we wanted to get
back to playing the way we did the first game," Crawford said.
"We knew it was going to be at home in front of our home crowd,
and we were going to have some extra energy for that. Hopefully,
we can like wrap it up while we're here at home."

Los Angeles can advance to the NL championship series with a
victory in Game 4 on Monday night. Ricky Nolasco pitches for the
Dodgers against veteran Freddy Garcia.

Crawford made the play of the game when he tumbled head over
heels to catch an eighth-inning foul ball at the low retaining
wall in left field. The speedy leadoff man also scored three
times, including once in the eighth when the Dodgers made it
13-4.

"I'm fine. I landed in a way it didn't hurt," he said. "I didn't
think the ball was going to go into the stands. It kept floating
and I didn't see the wall coming. I felt myself flipping over.
Good thing is I held onto the ball, so that's all that matters."

Chris Capuano won in relief of ineffective rookie Hyun-Jin Ryu
in a game that took 4 hours, 1 minute. The 13 runs allowed by
the Braves equaled the most in club history for a postseason
game.

Atlanta starter Julio Teheran took the loss, giving up six runs
and eight hits in 2 2-3 innings.

"He just left some balls out over the plate and made some
mistakes," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "With this club,
if you do that, you're going to look down at a gas tank with a
lighted match."

Los Angeles rallied in the third to regain the lead for good
after Atlanta tied it in the top of the inning. After that, the
Braves didn't manage much besides Jason Heyward's two-run homer
in the ninth.

By then, it was way too late.

Teheran and Ryu both made inauspicious postseason debuts in the
first matchup of rookie pitchers in the playoffs since 2007.
Neither stayed around long.

In addition to being shaky on the mound, Ryu made two major
mistakes in the field before giving way to Capuano, who spent
most of the season in the rotation before moving to the bullpen.

With the Dodgers ahead by six runs in their first home playoff
game since 2009, fans waved their blue souvenir towels with one
hand and made chopping motions with the other in mocking
Atlanta's trademark tomahawk chop.

"I didn't have my best, and I tried my best," the 22-year-old
Teheran said. "It was just one of those games that you do
everything, and the things don't go as you expect."

Ryu allowed four runs and six hits in three innings, becoming
the first South Korean-born pitcher to start a postseason game
in the major leagues.

Despite his rookie status, the left-hander brought a wealth of
experience from his native country in becoming the first player
to go from the Korean Baseball Organization to the majors.
Besides his seven seasons in the KBO, he had pitched in the 2009
World Baseball Classic at Dodger Stadium as a reliever.

"I felt a little more anxious than compared to those games," Ryu
said through a translator.

Atlanta got to him with two runs in the first during another of
Ryu's typically slow starts. Capuano came on to strike out three
and walk three in three hitless innings.

Los Angeles extended its lead to 10-4 with four runs in the
fourth. Ramirez had an RBI triple for his sixth extra-base hit
in three postseason games, tying the club record set by Steve
Garvey in four games of the 1978 NL championship series.

"I just kept telling him, `I want the whole world to see how
good you are,"' Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. "It's been
good so far."

Puig added an RBI single and Uribe followed with a two-run homer
on the first pitch he saw from reliever Alex Wood.

"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.

NOTES: Dodgers C A.J. Ellis got hit on the left elbow by a pitch
from hard-throwing Jordan Walden in the eighth, but stayed in
the game. Ellis had X-rays after the game and said he felt fine.
... Capuano's only other major league win in relief came on Aug.
20, 2010, for Milwaukee. ... It was the first time in Teheran
and Ryu's careers as starters that their pitching lines had more
runs than innings. ... Teheran became the youngest pitcher (22
years, 252 days) to make a postseason start for the Braves since
Steve Avery (22 years, 193 days) in the 1992 World Series,
according to STATS. ... Among the famous faces in the sellout
crowd of 54,646 were Sandy Koufax, Larry David, Eric Stonestreet
of "Modern Family" and Dennis Haysbert.
