After a promising start, the Los Angeles Dodgers ended up shelling both Julio Teheran and Alex Wood in game four of the National League Division Series, putting the Atlanta Braves in a 2-1 hole after a 13-6 loss Sunday.
Hanley Ramirez particularly torched the Braves with a single, double and triple paired with two RBIs. Adrian Gonzlaez, Juan Uribe and Yasiel Puig all also had two RBIs, while Carl Crawford drove in three.
The Braves started the game with RBI-singles from Evan Gattis and Chris Johnson off Hyun-Jin Ryu in the first inning, but Teheran gave up a four spot in the second to the Dodgers, largely thanks to Crawford's three-run homer.
Atlanta stormed back with two more runs in the second before Teheran gave up two more runs, leaving his line at 2 2/3 innings and six earned runs.
Alex Wood didn't fare much better in his 2 1/3 innings, but none of his four runs were credited as earned, despite giving up a homers to Puig and Uribe.
The loss puts the Braves in a must-win situation in Monday's game four. They'll need to win that in order to force a game five Wednesday at Turner Field.
