Green pinch-ran for Estrada, and he went to second on a bunt by Eli Marrero. A passed ball by Brent Mayne moved Green to third with one out, and LaRoche's broken-bat single through the right side of the infield gave the Braves the lead.
Atlanta starter Russ Ortiz allowed six hits and three runs in 6 1/3 innings. Chris Reitsma (6-3) got the win despite allowing two hits and two runs in an inning of work. John Smoltz retired the Dodgers in the bottom of the ninth, and in turn became the Braves' all-time leader in saves with 142.
