Puig homers again as Dodgers beat Braves

Posted: Updated:

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Pinch-runner Skip Schumaker scored on the second wild pitch by Anthony Varvaro in the 10th inning, giving the Los Angeles Dodgers a 2-1 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Friday night.

Ramon Hernandez started the rally with a one-out single, took second on the first wild pitch and advanced to third on a single by Luis Cruz.

Varvaro (3-1) then bounced another wild pitch to Juan Uribe, allowing Schumaker to score. Dodgers rookie Yasiel Puig was on-deck, but he wasn't needed after homering for the fourth time in five career games.

Brandon League (2-2) got the win in relief.

Dan Uggla singled home Atlanta's lone run in the fourth.
