Game story - Box Score - Photos
Recap: RA Dickey turned in another gem by limiting the Braves to two singles over eight innings. Manny Acosta and Francisco Rodriguez nearly combined to toss away a five-run lead in the ninth, with Rodriguez giving up a three-run homer to Diory Hernandez. A scary moment in the second inning when Beltran limped off the field after fouling a ball off his right calf. X-rays were negative and he's listed day-to-day.
Key stat: Justin Turner has 21 RBIs in 21 games.
2011 record: 28-31
2010 record: 31-28
