ATLANTA (AP) – James Loney’s three-run double was the key hit in a five-run seventh inning for Los Angeles and the streaking Dodgers rallied after trailing by five runs to beat the Atlanta Braves 8-6 on Friday night.

 

Andre Ethier added a two-run single in the seventh and Juan Rivera drove in three runs for the Dodgers, who have won five straight and 10 of 11.

 The Braves led 5-0 after three innings.

 

Rookie right-handed reliever Arodys Vizcaino gave up five runs, four hits and two walks while blowing a 5-3 lead in the seventh.

 

The Braves began the night leading St. Louis by 8 1-2 games in the NL wild-card race.

 

Javy Guerra earned his 14th save despite giving up a homer to Dan Uggla in the ninth.
