Ballack, who played for Leverkusen until his 2002 move to Bayern Munich, returned from Chelsea in the close season.
"But I am happy I played the full game. The coach asked me a few times but I was just happy to play through."
Leverkusen, among the title favourites, grabbed a deserved lead in the 19th minute when Tranquillo Barnetta completed a swift passing move between him, Gonzalo Castro and Arturo Vidal that left the defence dazed.
With Dortmund still rattled by the goal, Leverkusen struck again three minutes later with a solo effort from Renato Augusto.
