The Los Angeles Dodgers were able to start a new win streak on Thursday night as they took down the Atlanta Braves in the finale at Sun Trust Park, taking two of three in the series.
The Dodgers were tied 1-1 with the Braves as the game entered the fourth inning. Chris Taylor came up and hit an absolute bomb to dead-center field. The blast went 402 feet, over Ender Inciarte’s head.

The Dodgers went on to tack four more runs on against the Braves in a 7-4 win.
Relief pitcher Tony Cingrani made his Dodger debut in the bottom of the 9th inning. He allowed back-to-back singles before Ozzie Albies collected his first career Major League hit and home run, a three-run shot into left-center field. He proceeded to get three consecutive outs after the home run seemed to knock the jitters out of him.
