Brantley appeared to have a single in the sixth inning but the Dodgers' second baseman made a diving stop and fired it to Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman for the final out of the inning.

Brantley is carrying on the family legacy on the mound

Baseball bloodlines have become an integral part of the game. The Alomars, the Ripkens, the Molinas. The Niekro knuckleball danced its way through generations. Ken Griffey Jr. once played alongside his father, solidifying one of baseball’s greatest father-son moments.
