ATLANTA (AP) - Justin Turner gave Los Angeles the lead with a 10th-inning double and the Dodgers beat Atlanta 5-3 on Wednesday night to snap the Braves' four-game winning streak.
    
The Braves failed in a bid to become the first team to win five straight games after starting a season 0-9, according to STATS.
    
Braves rookie center fielder Mallex Smith, charging toward left field, made a diving attempt for Turner's sinking drive off Jason Grilli (1-1) but the ball bounced off his glove. Smith slipped and crawled before finally retrieving the ball as Chase Utley, who led off with a single, scored from second. Yasmani Grandal added a run-scoring single off Alexi Ogando.
    
Daniel Castro's two-run single in the fourth gave the Braves a 3-0 lead. Adrian Gonzalez hit a two-run homer off Eric O'Flaherty to tie the game in the sixth.
    
Joe Blanton (1-1) pitched a scoreless ninth. Kenley Jansen got the final three outs for his sixth save.
