Did you know? NLDS Game 3: LA 13, ATL 6

A look at some notable facts and figures from the Los Angeles Dodgers' 13-6 victory over the Atlanta Braves in Game 3 of the National League Division Series at Dodger Stadium on Sunday.

• The Braves struck for two runs in the top of the first inning off Los Angeles starter Hyun-Jin Ryu to take an early lead. Ryu's ERA in the first inning of his starts was 5.10 during the regular season.

• Atlanta starter Julio Teheran allowed six earned runs for the first time in his Major League career, taking the loss in his introduction to playoff baseball.

• Both Teheran and Ryu were out of the game by the start of the fourth inning after getting knocked around in their shortest starts of the year. The last playoff game in which neither team's starter lasted into the fourth was Game 2 of the 2012 NLDS between the Cardinals and Nationals.

Carl Crawford gave the Dodgers their first lead with a three-run homer in the bottom of the second inning, his fourth career postseason home run. Crawford hit only six home runs all season, and Los Angeles went 4-1 in games in which he went deep.

• The Braves gave up 13 runs in a playoff game for the first time since Game 6 of the 1992 NL Championship Series against the Pirates. They yielded double-digit runs only three times during the regular season and had last surrendered 13 runs on May 2, 2012.

• Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez went 3-for-4 with a double and a triple in Game 3 to extend his hot start to the 2013 postseason. His six extra-base hits so far have set a Dodgers record and tied Carlos Beltran in 2004 and Jim Edmonds in 2000 for the most extra-base hits in a Division Series.

• Veteran left-hander Chris Capuano helped the Dodgers' early outburst stand up, turning in three hitless innings in relief of Ryu to continue his dominance of the Braves. In 14 appearances against the Braves since the beginning of the 2006 season, Capuano holds a 1.66 ERA.

• Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig collected the first two postseason RBIs of his career with run-scoring singles in the fourth and eighth innings. Puig improved to 6-for-13 this series after a 3-for-5 night in Game 3.

Jason Heyward's two-run shot in the top of the ninth marked the first homer of the postseason for the Braves, who led the National League with 181 home runs in the regular season.
