ATLANTA (AP) —Dee Gordon scored the go-ahead run on Juan Rivera’s sacrifice fly in the 10th inning and the Los Angeles Dodgers won their season-best sixth straight game with a 2-1 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Saturday night.

The speedy Gordon, who entered the game as a pinch-runner in the eighth, doubled off rookie Anthony Varvaro (0-1) to begin the 10th, advanced to third on James Loney’s sacrifice bunt and scored on Rivera’s flyout.

Dodgers closer Javy Guerra, the fifth Los Angles relief pitcher, retired Michael Bourn, Martin Prado and Brian McCann in order to earn his 15th save in 16 chances.

Atlanta, which began the night with an 8 1/2-game lead in the NL wild-card standings, has lost two straight and dropped to 27-19 since the All-Star break.
