ATLANTA -- The Dodgers are getting solid performances out of their starting pitchers. Steven Matz Mets Jersey . Pretty good hitting, too. Dan Haren pitched six innings and sparked the go-ahead rally with a single, leading Los Angeles to another win over the skidding Atlanta Braves, 4-2 on Tuesday night. It was the second night in a row the Dodgers got production out of the ninth spot in the order. The previous night, Kevin Correia had two hits and scored a run. "I was hoping I didnt get thrown out," Haren (10-9) quipped about his hit to right-centre field. "It takes me about eight seconds to get to first." After allowing a fourth-inning homer to B.J. Upton that put the Braves up 2-1, Haren reached base with one out in the fifth. Carl Crawford followed with a double, sending Haren to third, and the pitcher scored the tying run on Yasiel Puigs grounder to third. "Puig hit the ball and I wasnt sure if it was going to the pitcher," Haren said. "I just went!" Matt Kemp hit a little blooper to right that just got over the glove of second baseman Tommy La Stella, bringing home Crawford. That was enough for the Dodgers. 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 three runs. Kenley Jansen earned his 33rd save. The Braves lost for the 11th time in their last 13 games, including two straight to the Dodgers. With Los Angeles up 1-0, Upton drove his ninth homer of the season deep into left-field seats. It was his sixth career homer off the Dodgers right-hander; Upton has no more than three homers against anyone else. Minor came into the game with a 5.42 ERA, having surrendered nine hits, two homers and five runs in his most recent start Aug. 1, a 10-1 loss at San Diego. "I changed some things mechanically, with some of my grips. I thought my stuff was moving better," Minor said. "It was encouraging." The Dodgers padded their lead in the ninth without a hit. Braves shortstop Emilio Bonifacio botched an easy grounder, and Darwin Barney hustled all the way to second on the error. Barney moved to third on a groundout, and scored on David Hales wild pitch. TRAINERS ROOM Dodgers: 2B Dee Gordon didnt start because manager Don Mattingly wants to make sure the slender infielder doesnt get too worn down in the heat of summer. "Trying to keep him at 170 (pounds), basically," Mattingly said before the game. Gordon struck out as a pinch hitter in the seventh. Braves: SS Andrelton Simmons took grounders before the game and continues to show improvement from a sprained left ankle. But he missed his sixth straight game, with Bonifacio starting in his place. La Stella, who had to leave Mondays game in the second inning, was back in the lineup after his right hamstring cramped because of dehydration. UP NEXT Dodgers: LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu (13-5) goes for his fifth straight win. Since July 13, he has allowed only seven earned runs in 33 innings (1.91 ERA) while limiting opposing hitters to a .198 average. He has 32 strikeouts and only four walks during his winning streak. Braves: Ervin Santana (11-6) will also be looking to stretch his winning streak to five in a row. He has worked at least six innings in his last 13 starts, and hasnt gone less than five innings in any start this season. YOU GOT IT, NO YOU GOT IT After the Braves tied the game in the third, Jason Heyward popped up right beside the batting circle for the apparent third out. But catcher A.J. Ellis backed off at the last second, apparently thinking first baseman Scott Van Slyke would take it. Van Slyke had stopped a few feet away, however. The ball fell in foul territory between the two players, who just stared at each other in disbelief. The miscue didnt hurt the Dodgers; Heyward flied out to left to end the inning. Gregor Blanco Jersey . - Vince Carter, heading into his 17th NBA season, doesnt consider age a big issue anymore. Todd Frazier Mets Jersey . The Blue Jackets got goals from Cam Atkinson, Nick Foligno, Boone Jenner and R.J. Umberger and Curtis McElhinney posted his first shutout since 2011 in a 4-0 victory on Friday night. http://www.metssale.com/mets-gary-carter-jersey/ .J. -- John Elway says Peyton Manning cannot stamp himself as the greatest quarterback in NFL history even if he wins the Super Bowl on Sunday.Paul McGinley looks back on an action-packed week at the WGC-Dell Match Play, where Jason Day saw off Rory McIlroy on his way to a second successive PGA Tour title and a return to world No 1. Often what separates the top players on a week-to-week basis is that one small element of confidence and Jasons certainly got that. He had a big boost with the win last week at Bay Hill and he carried it into proceedings in Austin.He has the ability to play on the front foot and be aggressive, particularly with how long and generally straight he hits with the driver, and he just gave his opponents no chance. Victory moves Day back to world No 1 Having watched both matches though, what impressed me was how outstanding his short game was. He had just 23 putts in the semi-final and his putting in the afternoon was equally impressive too.Day kept hitting fairways, putting the pressure on his opponents and controlling matches. He didnt have any easy matches, as youd expect when youre playing the leading 64 players in the world, but he had enough in the tank to keep winning. Three weeks ago, Adam Scott was the name on everyones lips. Now were talking about Jason Day being the hottest player in the world. Paul McGinley I think youve got to credit Day for his mental strength against Rory McIlroy. That was a real battle between two heavyweights and it came right down to the very last hole.Rory, from tee to green played very well, but he missed some chances with the putter which he could have done with making to put daylight between him and his Australian counterpart.Once Jason got the bit between his teeth, he was going to be very hard to beat. You just started to feel thee tide was turning Jasons way as the match neared its conclusion. Devin Mesoraco Jersey. Days WGC title How Jason Day claimed Match Play victory Then in the final, Louis Oosthuizen lost the initiative when he missed a short birdie putt to go two up. Jason then took control and when Louis looks back at the game, hell see the first two holes were his chance.Major thinkingIts funny how quickly the narrative can change in professional golf. Three weeks ago, Adam Scott was the name on everyones lips. Now were talking about Jason Day being the hottest player in the world. Adam Scott and Jason Day have both been back-to-back winners on the PGA Tour this year Days burst into form, you know Jordan Spieth is going to get his act together to be strong at Augusta and of course Rorys going to be buoyed after the way he played this week.McIlroy hasnt had a win this year, but his game seems to be heading in the right direction. You could add at least four or five other names though who are all legitimate contenders.Jason though is incredibly ambitious and keeps talking about winning several major champions. Hes going to go forward and Ill be very surprised if at the end of his career he doesnt have many more major titles.Hes up for the fight, hes looking forward and obviously very confident. Day is certainly going to be a factor at Augusta.Watch all four days of the Masters from April 7-10 live on Sky Sports - your home of golf Also See: Day storms to Match Play title McIlroy finishes in fourth spot WGC day five: as it happened Golf live on Sky Sports 4 ' ' '
