Dodgers Vs. Braves Game Preview: Chad Billingsley Goes For 6th Straight Win

The Los Angeles Dodgers will look to take the series from the Atlanta Braves in the rubber game of a three game set on Sunday at 10:35 a.m. PST.

Chad Billingsley takes the hill for the Dodgers early Sunday at Atlanta's Turner Field as the Dodgers look to continue to break out of an up-and-down stretch run.

The Dodgers snapped the Braves' four-game winning streak with their 6-2 victory in Saturday's contest, and were also able to snap a two-game losing streak of their own.

New Dodgers addition Hanley Ramirez supplied the power, blasting two homers to help the Dodgers (66-55) win just their second contest over the Braves in their last five.

Mike Minor heads to the mound for the Braves, who welcome catcher Brian McCann back to the lineup for the afternoon contest.
