ATLANTA — Mike Bolsinger pitched seven strong innings and the Los Angeles Dodgers scored three runs in the fifth inning to beat the Atlanta Braves 3-1 on Wednesday. Having used their bullpen for 9 1/3 innings in first two games of the series, the NL West-leading Dodgers were hoping Bolsinger would pitch past the sixth for the first time in his last eight starts. Alberto Callaspo, Jimmy Rollins and Joc Pederson each drove in a run for Los Angeles, which avoided its first three-game losing streak since June 15-17 against Texas.
