ATLANTA (AP) -

Julio Teheran pitched six strong innings, Andrelton Simmons homered and the Atlanta Braves beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 3-0 on Friday night.

The Braves, who have won three of four and lead second-place Washington by 5 1/2 games in the NL East, retired former All-Star third baseman Chipper Jones' number before the game.

Teheran (6-4) allowed four hits, one walk and struck out 10.

The NL West-leading Diamondbacks have lost three of four. They were shut out for the first time since losing 5- 0 at San Francisco on Sept. 26, a span of 85 games.
