WASHINGTON (AP) The Atlanta Braves jerseys had dropped three straight before this week’s series against the Washington Nationals jerseys.
That only makes their rare series victory against the defending NL East champs even sweeter.
cheap Julio Teheran jersey earned his third consecutive victory, cheap Kurt Suzuki jersey homered and Atlanta defeated Washington 13 2 on Wednesday to take two of three from the Nationals jerseys.
“It’s a tough place to win,” manager Brian Snitker said. “It’s a very good team and we were coming off a rough series at home. Guys responded well. We started swinging the bats and the bullpen did a great job. It was a good series for us.”
cheap Brandon Phillips jersey had four hits and three RBIs for the Braves jerseys, who had dropped seven consecutive road series against the Nationals jerseys and had lost 23 of their last 25 games in Washington before this series. It was Atlanta’s first series victory at Washington since taking two during a three game set April 4 6, 2014.
Teheran (6 4) matched a season high with seven innings, allowing six hits and one walk while striking out three against a lineup that did not include resting regulars cheap Anthony Rendon jersey and cheap Matt Wieters jersey.
“Even if I give up a homer or something, I just have to stay focused and execute pitches,” Teheran said. “That’s something I was doing really good getting ahead in counts and throwing strike one. It was big today.”
Washington lost its second consecutive series and finished 2 5 on its homestand.
“It was a tough homestand,” Washington manager Dusty Baker said. “This is not the kind of homestand you want to exhibit in front of your home fans.”
Atlanta was in control from the start against Washington starter cheap Tanner Roark jersey (6 4), who gave up two runs before he recorded an out and three total in the first inning.
The Braves jerseys would add three more in the third, with cheap Nick Markakis jersey scoring from third after Nationals jerseys catcher cheap Jose Lobaton jersey’s pickoff attempt of cheap Matt Kemp jersey caught first baseman cheap Ryan Zimmerman jersey off guard and sailed into right field. Kemp was thrown out at third and left the game the following half inning as a precaution after experiencing hamstring tightness.
After a walk to cheap Matt Adams jersey, Suzuki hit his fourth home run of the season to make it 6 2.
Teheran yielded a two run homer to cheap Brian Goodwin jersey in the second inning, but otherwise encountered little difficulty. He did not allow a runner past second base after Goodwin’s home run.
“Julio pitched a really good game,” Kemp said. “He made one mistake but other than that he was money.”
Roark surrendered nine hits while matching a season high with seven runs allowed over five innings.
Suzuki’s home run snapped an 0 for 19 slump. The catcher added a single in the seventh, securing his first multi hit game since May 23.
