(Best Syndication) The Braves beat the Dodgers 6-4 in come-from-behind fashion Sunday. This was the 16th time this season that the Dodgers led going into the 7th inning but the first time they lost doing so. Their overall record this season is 18-13.

The Dodgers new third baseman wasted no time getting on base with a ground-rule double. Andy LaRoche made it home with a hit from outfielder Andre Ethier. That tied the game at one. Ethier later made it home himself.

Wilson Betemit hit two pinch-hit homers in two consecutive days making the score four to one. But later Atlanta came back and tied it up. Edgar Renteria drove in a pair of runs and scored twice while extending his hit streak to 15 games. They ended up putting five runs up in the 7th inning.

Atlanta has won three of their last four games while the Dodgers have won three of their last five. "I knew we were due. That's just the way the game is," said veteran Jeff Kent, whose 0-for-4 was part of an 0-for-14 by the top four in the Dodgers' batting order. "They had a lot of cheap hits, so many I couldn't count, and we did a lot of things right. Sometimes, it's not what you do right. There's a lot of fortune in this game, and it's frustrating that you can't always control fortune."
