Braves Win Opener In Philly
The Braves rolled into Philadelphia hoping to catch the division leading Washington Nationals.
They did -- with a one-two punch.
Julio Teheran was strong, striking out nine and giving up six hits.
Freddie Freeman provided the offense, all of it.
In the first inning, Freeman hit a towering shot to dead center for a three-run homer. Then, in the second inning with Andrelton Simmons on first, Freeman hit a double to right center. Simmons scored on the play and Freeman had netted four RBI.
That was enough to secure victory for the Braves, 4-2. They have a double-header with Philadelphia on Saturday.
