ATLANTA (AP) - Alex Wood allowed one run in six innings to avenge his lone loss of the season, Chris Taylor had three hits, including a two-run homer, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Atlanta Braves 7-4 on Thursday night.

Wood (13-1) evened his record this season against his former Atlanta teammates. He gave up a career-high nine runs, seven earned, in a 12-3 loss to the Braves on July 21. The left-hander returned to his All-Star form in the rematch, permitting seven hits.

Left-hander Tony Cingrani, who joined the Dodgers earlier in the day after he was acquired from the Cincinnati Reds on Monday, gave up a three-run homer to rookie Ozzie Albies in the ninth. It was Albies' first major league hit.

The Dodgers, whose nine-game winning streak ended with a 5-3 defeat Wednesday night, won two of three in the series. They are 21-3 since July 4, with all three losses coming against the Braves.
