8/30/2016 | Swanson's 3 RBIs help Teheran get 1st home win
Along with distancing himself from the nagging ailments that hampered him over the past two months, Julio Teheran fueled the five-run third inning that soured Edwin Jackson's homecoming and propelled the Braves to a 7-3 win over the Padres on Tuesday night at Turner Field. Dansby Swanson chased the Padres veteran with a single that accounted for the first of his three RBIs.
8/30/2016 | Teheran finally enjoys some home cooking
Since the beginning of July, when a right thigh infection affected his final two starts before the All-Star break, Julio Teheran had struggled to establish a routine. The infection ultimately gave way to a right lat strain that landed him on the disabled list for the first time in his career. And after posting a 2.46 ERA through his first 16 starts, he saw that mark rise to 3.15 upon his return. But in Tuesday's 7-3 win over the Padres at Turner Field, the Braves' ace demonstrated the benefits of a normal regimen, allowing two runs on seven hits while striking out eight in his third and most impressive start since coming off the DL and notching his first win at home since Oct. 2, 2015.
