Bob Watson had a pinch-hit, two-run homer in the ninth inning to complete Atlanta's comeback over visiting Los Angeles.
"I was sent up there to hit a home run," Watson said. "I got a good pitch to hit and happened to hit it about as hard as I could. I just didn't think it was high enough."
With Los Angeles leading, 7-6, Rafael Ramirez led off the ninth with an infield hit. Watson, batting for Claudell Washington, hit an 0-1 pitch from Steve Howe (4-7) for his fifth home run, making reliever Steve Bedrosian (8-5) the winner.
"This club's made a believer of me as far as sleeping giants go," Manager Joe Torre said of the Braves' rally. "Maybe this will put to sleep some things about us playing the Dodgers."
Los Angeles took a 7-6 lead in the ninth when Greg Brock hit a two-out, 0-2 pitch down the right field line for his 16th home run.
Pedro Guerrero helped the Dodgers to their 6-1 lead with his 22nd and 23rd homers--a two-run hit in the first after Dusty Baker walked and a solo homer in the sixth. Candy Maldonado had a two-run double for the Dodgers in the fourth following walks to Guerrero and Mike Marshall and eventually scored on Jack Fimple's squeeze bunt.
Los Angeles still leads the season series, 7-4, and has won 10 of its last 15 games in Atlanta Stadium.
