Braves blank Brewers 5-0

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA (AP) -

Julio Teheran pitched a six-hitter for his second shutout of the season, Justin Upton had three RBIs and the Atlanta Braves won their third in a row, beating the slumping Milwaukee Brewers 5-0 Tuesday night.

It was another laugher in the matchup between first-place teams, the Braves jumping ahead with three runs in the third and cruising to victory after opening the series with a 9-3 rout.

The Brewers have lost four in a row overall, their longest skid of 2014.

Teheran (3-3) bounced back from the shortest start of his career at San Francisco, where he lasted just 3 1-3 innings in a 10-4 loss.

Upton had a two-run single in the third and his 12th homer in the fifth, a solo shot.

Yovani Gallardo (2-2) took the loss.
