WASHINGTON (AP) - Julio Teheran allowed two runs in seven solid innings and had two hits, and Atlanta knocked out Stephen Strasburg in the fifth inning, as the Braves beat the Washington Nationals 6-2 on Saturday night.
Dan Ugly had a two-run single for the Braves and Freddie Freeman reached base five times with two hits and three walks.
Teheran (1-1) limited Washington to three hits in seven innings, one of them a two-run home run by Adam LaRoche. The Braves right-hander was aided by a spectacular throw by B.J. Upton, who caught a liner to medium center by Bryce Harper and threw Jose Libation out at the plate for an inning-ending double play in the fifth.
Strasburg (0-1) allowed eight hits, three walks and three earned runs in 4 1-3 innings.
