The Dodgers (18-17) got on the board early in the bottom of the first when first basemen Fred McGriff, with runners on first and third, singled into center field that drove in Paul Lo Duca.
Cesar Izturis put the Dodgers back up a run when he grounded deep into the shortstop hole and Rey Sanchez threw to Roberto Alomar for the second out as a run crossed the plate. Pinch hitter Mike Kinkade then extended the lead to two by singling into center field that allowed Ron Coomer to score.
Los Angeles added three more runs in the top of eighth with an RBI double from Fred McGriff and then a single by Cesar Izturis that drove in two more runs.
Tom Glavine (4-3), who had won three of his last four starts coming into the day, went seven innings and surrendered seven hits, three runs, and three walks while fanning two. He is now 15-18 against Los Angeles in his career.
Before the game, general manager Steve Phillips met with catcher Mike Piazza about the possibility of moving to first base.
"We had a very good conversation with Mike," Steve Phillips said to the Associated Press. "It was a very frank and open conversation. Mike was very receptive to the idea and the concept."
