ATLANTA (AP) – Julio Teheran held Pittsburgh without a hit for 7 2-3 innings before settling for a combined one-hit shutout, and the Atlanta Braves beat the Pirates 5-0 on Wednesday.
Tehran (4-2) gave up one hit with two walks and set a career high with 11 strikeouts in eight innings in the Braves' fifth straight win, including a sweep of the three-game series.
Pinch-hitter Brandon Inge broke up Teheran's no-hit bid with a single to left field with two outs in the eighth. Teheran received an ovation from Braves fans who also cheered after the inning ended on Starling Marte's pop-up.
David Carpenter pitched a perfect ninth to complete the combined one-hitter.
Evan Gattis and Gerald Laird hit back-to-back homers in the sixth.
Pittsburgh's Wandy Rodriguez (6-4) left the game with tightness in his left forearm after recording only one out in the first inning.
