ATLANTA (AP) -- Dan Haren pitched six solid innings and sparked the go-ahead rally with a single, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers to another win over the skidding Atlanta Braves, 4-2 on Tuesday night.
Haren (10-9) surrendered a fourth-inning homer to B.J. Upton that put the Braves up 2-1, but the light-hitting pitcher came through with a one-out single to right in the fifth. Carl Crawford followed with a double, and Haren scored the tying run on Yasiel Puig's grounder to third.
Mike Minor (4-8) matched his longest outing of the past month after being skipped his previous turn in the rotation. The Atlanta lefty went 6 2-3 innings, allowing eight hits and all three Dodgers run.
Kenley Jansen earned his 33rd save.
