ATLANTA (AP) -- Derek Lowe pitched six innings in his first game against Los Angeles since he signed with Atlanta in the offseason, leading the Braves to a 4-3 victory over the Dodgers on Saturday.
Lowe (11-7) allowed three runs and five hits to win his fourth straight decision. The right-hander went 54-48 over four seasons with the Dodgers before agreeing to a $60 million, four-year contract with the Braves in January.
Adam LaRoche had two hits and scored the tying run in the sixth in his return to Atlanta following Friday's trade from Boston. Chipper Jones had two hits and drove in two runs.
Rafael Soriano, Atlanta's fourth reliever, pitched a perfect ninth for his 16th save.
