JULIO TEHERAN SHARP IN ATLANTA BRAVES’ WIN OVER MINNESOTA TWINS AT TURNER FIELD
The Atlanta Braves beat the Minnesota Twins 5-1 in the opener of an interleague series at Turner Field last night.
Starting pitcher Julio Teheran put on a stellar performance for the Braves in last night’s game; he was just two outs away from his first career shut out. He made it all the way to the ninth without giving up a run until the Twins’ Josh Willingham hit a solo home run with one out in that inning. Teheran was retired shortly thereafter. He ended up with the win after giving up one run and five hits and striking out four in eight and a third innings of work. Cory Gearrin came in to get his first career save.
The Braves jumped out in front early with four runs in the bottom of the first, including a three run homer from Dan Uggla. The following highlight is courtesy of the Atlanta Braves radio network.
Yesterday marked the Minnesota Twins’ first trip to Atlanta since the 1991 World Series. The Braves and the Twins will play game two of their three game series tonight at 7:10 pm at Turner Field. The game will be broadcast on the AM 1410 WLAQ. Air time for pre-game programming is 5:55 pm from the Atlanta Braves radio network.
