ATLANTA, May 20 (UPI) -- Rookie Julio Teheran fired 8 1/3 innings of one-run ball Monday, dominating Minnesota in the Atlanta Braves' 5-1 interleague win over the Twins.

Cory Gearrin recorded the game's final out for his first career save as National League East-leading Atlanta reeled off its fourth straight victory in the opener of a three-game set.

Dan Uggla sparked the Braves' offense with a three-run homer.

Twins starter Kevin Correia (4-4) was touched for five runs on eight hits over four full frames.

Josh Willingham cracked a solo homer for Minnesota, which dropped a sixth straight.
