Teheran, Braves shut out Brewers, 5-0
Milwaukee suffers fifth straight loss
ATLANTA — Julio Teheran pitched a six-hitter for his second shutout of the season, Justin Upton had three RBIs and the Atlanta Braves won their third in a row, beating the slumping Milwaukee Brewers 5-0 Tuesday night.
It was another laugher in the matchup between first-place teams, the Braves jumping ahead with three runs in the third and cruising to victory after opening the series with a 9-3 rout.
The Brewers have lost four in a row overall, their longest skid of 2014.
Teheran (3-3) bounced back from the shortest start of his career at San Francisco, where he lasted just 3 1-3 innings in a 10-4 loss.
Upton had a two-run single in the third and his 12th homer in the fifth, a solo shot.
Yovani Gallardo (2-2) took the loss.
Gallardo left the game in the fourth inning when he suffered an apparent leg injury trying to field a ground ball.
