Francisco's single gives Braves 4-3 win over LA

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Pinch-hitter Juan Francisco's two-out single in the 11th inning gave the Atlanta Braves their fourth straight win, 4-3 over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night.

Backup catcher David Ross and light-hitting Paul Janish kept the inning going with back-to-back singles off Brandon League (0-1) before Francisco punched on to left off Jamie Wright. Jonny Venters (4-3) earned the win.

The Braves rallied from a 3-1 deficit in the eighth on Martin Prado's run-scoring groundout and Jason Heyward's two-out single, ruining a strong performance by Dodgers starter Chris Capuano.

After giving up second-inning shot to Chipper Jones, his third homer in two nights, Capuano stifled the Braves until the eighth, when Janish and pinch-hitter Reed Johnson sparked the rally.

The Dodgers led after Andre Ethier's two-run homer off Tommy Hanson.
