LOS ANGELES (AP) - Matt Kemp singled in the winning run in the bottom of the 10th inning, Zack Greinke struck out a season-high 13 and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Atlanta Braves 3-2 on Wednesday night for their season-best fifth straight victory.

Kemp scored the Dodgers' first two runs of the game, including his 11th homer leading off the second.

Pinch-hitter Justin Turner singled to open the 10th and took second on a wild pitch by David Hale (3-3). Kemp followed with the winning single to left.

J.P. Howell (3-3) got the win in relief, walking two and striking out one in one inning.

The Braves tied the game 2-2 on Justin Upton's home run off closer Kenley Jansen leading off the ninth.
