(TSX / STATS) -- LOS ANGELES -- Logan Forsythe hit a bases-loaded, walk-off single in the 10th inning to give the Los Angeles Dodgers a 5-4 win over the Atlanta Braves on Sunday.

Yet the celebration was tempered.

The Dodgers were concerned because ace Clayton Kershaw left the game after two innings with right lower back tightness. Kershaw was scheduled to see Dr. Robert Watkins on Sunday evening for tests.
