Teheran leads Braves past Mets for 5th straight win

NEW YORK (AP) – Julio Teheran tossed a one-hit masterpiece and did not allow any other baserunners, pitching the Atlanta Braves to a 6-0 victory Sunday that capped a surprising three-game sweep of the scuffling New York Mets.

Nick Markakis homered and drove in two runs for Atlanta, which has won five straight for the first time since the first five games of last season. Freddie Freeman had four hits and the Braves finally mustered some offense in support of Teheran (3-7), who yielded only Michael Conforto’s clean single leading off the third inning.

Conforto never advanced, and the right-hander dominated New York the rest of the afternoon, spoiling Jacob deGrom’s birthday as a Father’s Day crowd of 41,576 booed the home team repeatedly.
