Teheran guides Braves to 3-1 win over Pirates

Posted: Updated:

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Julio Teheran allowed five hits in 7 2/3 crisp innings and the Atlanta Braves gave Brian Snitker his first victory as interim manager with a 3-1 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday night.

Teheran (1-4) struck out three without a walk to end six weeks of frustration. Tyler Flowers hit a home run to the bushes in center field and finished with three hits for the Braves, who won for just the third time in their last 13 games.

Arodys Vizcaino gave up a ninth-inning home run to Jung Ho Kang but got the final four outs for his fourth save.

Francisco Liriano (3-3) pitched seven strong innings after getting rocked in his previous start last week against the Chicago Cubs but the Pirates lost for the first time in Liriano's last 14 starts at PNC Park.

A night after pounding out 12 runs on a season-high 21 hits, Pittsburgh never made it to third base with Teheran on the mound.
