LOS ANGELES — Braves pitcher Jaime Garcia hit a grand slam off previously unbeaten Alex Wood to highlight Atlanta's 12-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night.
Garcia, the subject of trade speculation lately, limited Los Angeles to three runs over seven innings as the Braves won their second straight at Dodger Stadium. The NL West leaders hadn't lost two in a row since June 5-6 against Washington. They've been outscored 18-6 in the first two games of the series.
It was the Dodgers' most lopsided defeat of the season.
Wood (11-1) got knocked around by his former team. The All-Star left-hander gave up nine runs — seven earned — and nine hits in 4 2/3 innings, tying his shortest start since joining the rotation April 21. He struck out four and walked four.
Wood allowed season highs in runs and hits while throwing a season-most 100 pitches. He hadn't lost at home since Sept. 22, 2015.
