At just 22 years of age, Julio Teheran could be establishing himself as one of the best young pitchers in baseball. Looking to build on another impressive performance, Teheran tries to help the Atlanta Braves avoid a seventh consecutive road loss to the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night. Six days after losing at San Diego by yielding a season worst-tying five runs in six innings of a 7-6 defeat, Teheran (5-3, 3.36 ERA) bounced back Sunday in a 3-0 win over San Francisco. The right-hander struck out eight and walked one in six innings, giving him a 2.42 ERA over his last 10 outings. "I know that I wasn't at my best last time, and I was trying to get back on track and keep what I've been doing in my last 10 starts," he told MLB's official website. Teheran, who has fanned 54 and walked just nine in 67 innings during his solid 10-start stretch, escaped a pair of bases-loaded jams against the Giants. "Maturation, that's what it is," manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "Here's a guy that 12 starts ago, it might've blown up on him, and here's a guy that can compose himself. He's been through those situations, and he did a good job." Teheran is set to make his first appearance against Milwaukee (29-42), which has outscored the Braves 27-9 during a six-game run at Miller Park. Although the Brewers have won three straight on their own field, they're just 7-15 there since May 1. Sitting in a last-place tie in the NL Central, Milwaukee returns home after concluding a 4-5 road trip with what manager Ron Roenicke called the team's worst game of the year. Milwaukee went 0 for 12 with runners in scoring position, and Michael Gonzalez surrendered a walkoff three-run homer in the 10th inning of Thursday's 7-4 loss at Houston. "That's as bad as it gets," Roenicke said. "Sometimes we might lose big, or we may not pitch well, but all the things we did wrong in that game, that's a bad game." Atlanta (43-31) is coming off its third loss in four games, falling 4-3 to the New York Mets on Thursday. Tyler Pastornicky, Jason Heyward, Freddie Freeman and Justin Upton - the team's first four hitters - went a combined 9 for 19, but the Braves were 3 for 13 with runners in scoring position. "That's baseball, but we're definitely not going to hang our heads," said B.J. Upton, who was 0 for 5 and stranded five runners. "We're going to bounce back, and we'll be ready to play (Friday)." Losers in 12 of 18 on the road, the Braves will try to regroup against Wily Peralta (4-8, 6.08). He was tagged for five runs in 5 1-3 innings in Sunday's 5-1 loss at Cincinnati, dropping to 1-6 over his last eight outings. "I think sometimes he tries to overthrow," catcher Jonathan Lucroy said of the 24-year-old right-hander. "It's a typical thing. You see it a lot in younger pitchers. They try to do too much." Peralta has lost three consecutive home starts, compiling a 9.26 ERA while allowing 19 hits and 11 walks in 11 2-3 innings. In his only appearance versus Atlanta, Peralta yielded one run in six innings but didn't receive a decision in a 4-1 victory Sept. 10. Milwaukee's Juan Francisco, acquired from Atlanta on June 3 after getting designated for assignment, faces his former team for the first time. He's 6 for 38 with a homer and five RBIs in 13 games with the Brewers.
