MLB: Atlanta 3, San Francisco 0

June 16, 2013 at 11:28 PM   |   Comments

ATLANTA, June 16 (UPI) -- Julio Teheran and three relievers combined on a seven-hit shutout Sunday, propelling the Atlanta Braves past San Francisco 3-0.

Teheran (5-3) continued an impressive rookie season, rebounding from a sub-par effort in his previous start to post his second victory in three outings. The right-hander scattered seven hits and struck out eight while issuing just one walk.

Luis Avilan and Jordan Walden each hurled a scoreless relief inning and Craig Kimbrel fired a 1-2-3 ninth for his 19th save as the National League East-leading Braves took the rubber match of a three-game series.

Freddie Freeman, B.J. Upton and Jordan Schafer each supplied an RBI in the victory.

Giants starter Tim Lincecum (4-7) was hung with the loss after getting nicked for three runs (two earned) on six hits in six frames.
