KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) Julio Teheran worked around six base runners to match Jordan Zimmermann with three scoreless innings and lead the Atlanta Braves to a 3-2 win over the Atlanta Braves on Thursday night.
Teheran, who won 14 games as a rookie last season, gave up four hits, walked one, hit another and threw a wild pitch. But he now has five scoreless innings against the Nationals this spring after allowing just one run while winning his final two starts against them last season.
"I was getting a little bit in trouble and just tried to make better pitches," said Teheran, who threw 36 strikes in 53 pitches. "My slider was good, but I was missing with my fastball."
