Braves outfielder Justin Upton had a big game Wednesday, going 3 for 4 with a double and a solo home run in his team's 3-2 loss to the Dodgers.

After the Dodgers took a 2-1 lead in the top of the ninth, Upton came through with a no-doubt, leadoff home run in the bottom of the inning to tie the game. While it was just his third home run in July, Upton has hit .287/.354/.511 with 19 home runs, 62 RBI and seven stolen bases in 376 at-bats.

Braves right-hander Ervin Santana remained on a strikeout tear while snagging his third consecutive win Monday against San Diego.

Santana pitched eight shutout innings on five hits and tied a season-high by fanning 11 while walking none. He has thrown seven consecutive quality starts to lower his ERA to 3.63, its lowest point since May 21.

He is set to start Saturday in San Diego against the same Padres.

News
Braves pitcher Alex Wood didn't factor into Wednesday's decision after giving up one earned run on six hits and two walks in seven innings and striking out eight in his team's 3-2 loss to the Dodgers.

Wood surrendered a solo home run in the second to tie the game 1-1, and it turned into a pitchers' duel after that. It was an excellent rebound effort after giving up 12 hits and five runs in his last outing. Wood owns a 3.30 ERA and 102:26 K:BB ratio in 103 2.3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Mariners Tuesday.

Braves pitcher David Hale was stuck with a loss Wednesday, giving up one earned run on three hits in one-plus innings in his team's 3-2 defeat against the Dodgers.

Hale (3-3) gave up a two-out single in the ninth inning but was able to escape the frame unscatched. He then surrendered a leadoff single in the 10th and watched the runner move into scoring position on a wild pitch. The next batter delivered a walkoff single to end the game. Hale owns a 2.76 ERA and 31:26 K:BB ratio in 65 1/3 innings.

News
Catcher Evan Gattis was pretty much the entire Braves offense Monday in a victory over San Diego. He opened the scoring and the seventh with a home run, then singled in the only other run of the game an inning later.

Gattis has emerged from a slump that plagued him upon his return from a back injury. He had one hit in 13 at-bats before slamming five hits in the last two games combined. The tater was his first since June 18.
