LOS ANGELES (AP) - A.J. Ellis hit an RBI single in the 11th inning to give the Los Angeles Dodgers a 5-4 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Sunday and a split of their four-game series.
Pinch-hitter Russell Martin drew a leadoff walk from Jesse Chavez (0-0), advanced on Blake DeWitt's bunt and came home when Ellis stroked a 1-2 pitch to left field for his seventh RBI of the season.
Dodgers relievers Jonathan Broxton and Ronald Belisario ended the Braves' ninth and 10th innings with strikeouts - each stranding a runner at third. Belisario (1-0) pitched two innings of two-hit ball for the victory.
Braves starter Tim Hudson allowed four runs - three earned - and nine hits in seven-plus innings.
