Oct. 7, 2013 at 12:30 AM

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 7 (UPI) -- Hanley Ramirez went 3-for-4 with two RBI and Carl Crawford bashed a three-run homer Sunday, powering the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 13-6 NLDS rout of Atlanta.

Crawford's shot in the second inning put the Dodgers ahead 4-2, but the Braves responded with a pair of runs in the third off starter Hyun-Jin Ryu to tie it up.

Adrian Gonzalez and Skip Schumaker each delivered a run-scoring single in the next half-inning, putting LA ahead for good, and Ramirez provided an RBI triple in the fourth, sparking a four-run uprising.

Juan Uribe cracked a two-run homer and Yasiel Puig finished 3-for-5 with two RBI and three runs scored for the Dodgers, who tied the MLB record for the most runs in a post-season game while grabbing a 2-1 lead in the best-of-five National League Division Series.

Chris Capuano (1-0) earned the decision with three scoreless relief innings for Los Angeles, which will seek to close out the NLDS Monday at Dodger Stadium.

Braves starter Julio Teheran (0-1) was lit up for six runs on eight hits over just 2 2/3 innings.

Jason Heyward socked a two-run homer and Chris Johnson provided a pair of RBI for Atlanta.
