Originally written June 29, 2013 on Atlanta Bullpen:
Teheran struck out 10 Friday night The Atlanta Braves were able to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks on the night Chipper Jones’ #10 jersey was retired. The Braves 3-0 shutout victory was the first time the D-Backs have been shut out during the 2013 season. It was a very intriguing match-up on the mound for Friday’s game. Last year, Julio Teheran and Randall Delgado were fighting for that 5th and final starting spot for the Braves. On Friday, they would oppose each other on the mound, as Delgado was sent to Arizona in the deal for Justin Upton. Teheran won the battle on Friday night as he had all of his pitches working. Teheran did a great job shutting down a D-Backs lineup that has had no problems of scoring runs this season. Over his 6 IP, he only gave up 4 hits, and struck out 10 batters. His season ERA moved down to 3.12 on the season, as he improved his season record to 6-4 Luis Avilan (1.1 IP), Jordan Walden (0.2 IP), and Craig Kimbrel (1 IP, S-23) came out of the pen in relief of Teheran and finished off the shutout. The Braves jumped on the Diamondbacks early on Friday night. Jason Heyward’s ground rule double had him on 2nd base when Justin Upton singled up the middle. Heyward streaked around and gave the Braves a 1-0 lead. Andrelton Simmons only hit of the game came off of Randall Delgado. Simmons hit a solo homer off of Delgado in the 5th inning. The 6th home run of the year for the Braves shortstop increased the Braves lead to 2-0. The Braves would get their 3rd and final run in the 8th inning. A bunt single by Reed Johnson scored Dan Uggla from 3rd base. That was the end of the game’s scoring, as the Braves went on to a 3-0 win over the 1st place team in the NL West. Jason Heyward (2-5), Dan Uggla (2-4), and B.J Upton (2-3) all had good nights at the plate. A 3-run lead seemed like 10 runs with the way Teheran was pitching on Friday. I’m glad the offense got him some runs to work with tonight. Former Braves, Randall Delgado and Martin Prado, had good nights against their former team. Delgado pitched 6 innings, 2 ER, and 3 K’s. Prado, who received a standing ovation from Braves country, was 1-2 during the game. Teheran’s outing was no fluke. The Braves have shut out 7 teams so far in 2013, Julio Teheran has started 3 of those games. Teheran’s recent performance still has people questioning what Fredi Gonzalez is going to do when Brandon Beachy returns. The Nationals were down 4-1 before coming back and defeating the Mets on Friday. The Braves lead in the NL East stays at 5.5 games as they head into Saturday afternoon’s game against the D-Backs.
