Some extra rest left Julio Teheran feeling so strong he was unhittable for six innings.

That was more good news for an Atlanta rotation that is gaining momentum.

Teheran pitched six no-hit innings before being pulled from his first start since coming off the disabled list Darius Leonard Jersey , and Atlanta relievers gave up six hits Sunday while finishing off a 4-1 win over the San Diego Padres.

Teherans velocity was up, with his fastball hitting 92 mph. He had been closer to 89 mph before he missed less than two weeks with a sore thumb. The boost in his fastball also helped his offspeed pitches.

Those 10 days helped me to get everything on track, Teheran said. It was kind of fun to have my stuff back.

Teheran (5-4) struck out a season-high 11, walked three and threw 95 pitches while recording 15 consecutive outs. Manager Brian Snitker said he could immediately see the difference in the right-handers pitchers.

It was just good to see the life on the fastball again, Snitker said.

Teherans changeup and slider also were effective.

He was throwing all his pitches for strikes, said San Diegos Cory Spangenberg. I know through three at-bats I only got one fastball. When a pitcher is doing that, hes pretty tough to hit.

Over the last 11 home games, Braves starters have a 1.00 ERA, allowing eight earned runs in 72 innings. No starter allowed more than two runs during the streak.

The bid for a combined no-hitter ended with one out in the seventh when reliever Shane Carle allowed a single to Spangenberg. Freddy Galvis added another single before Carle pitched out of the jam.

Jose Vizcaino gave up singles to Spangenberg and Galvis in the ninth before striking out Christian Villanueva and Raffy Lopez. Right fielder Nick Markakis, running toward the foul line, made a diving catch of Raffy Lopezs flyball to end the game. Vizcaino earned his 15th save, including his third of the series.

Johan Camargos two-run double in the fourth off Jose Castillo (1-1) gave Atlanta a 2-0 lead. Tyler Flowers hit a two-run homer off Brad Hand in the eighth.

The Padres, who lost 1-0 on Saturday Nyheim Hines Jersey , ended a 16-inning scoring drought in the eighth. Franmil Reyes singled off A.J. Minter, moved to third on Eric Hosmers single and scored on Jose Pirelas sacrifice fly. Hunter Renfroes fourth strikeout of the game ended the inning.

TRAINERS ROOM

Braves C Kurt Suzuki left the game after he was hit on his helmet by Lopezs bat as he struck out with a big follow-through to end the second inning. Suzuki was knocked to the ground but was able to walk off the field.

Manager Brian Snitker said Suzuki should be able to play in Atlantas next game at Toronto on Tuesday.

Braves third base coach Ron Washington had words with Lopez when Lopez emerged from the San Diego dugout to open the third inning. Snitker said the discussion was about Lopez not checking on Suzuki before walking away from the plate.

SERIES STREAK ENDS

The NL East-leading Braves won three of four in the series, ending San Diegos streak of five straight series wins. The Padres last series loss came on May 25-27, when they dropped two of three to the Dodgers.

ROSTER MOVE

Braves LHP Luiz Gohara was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett, where he will start. RHP Luke Jackson was re-signed to a major league contract after being designated for assignment on Wednesday.

BULLPEN GAME

Matt Strahm made his fourth start as the Padres continue to use a bullpen committee approach for one spot in their rotation. Strahm allowed only one hit with five strikeouts in 2 2/3 scoreless innings.

San Diegos first four relievers allowed only two runs.

We just didnt do enough offensively, manager Andy Green said.

UP NEXT

Padres: Following an off day on Monday, LHP Eric Lauer (3-4, 6.20) will face Oaklands Paul Blackburn (1-1, 11.05) on Tuesday night in the first game of a two-game home series.

Braves: Atlanta is off on Monday before opening a two-game series at Toronto on Tuesday night, when rookie RHP Mike Soroka (2-1, 2.57) faces LHP Jaime Garcia (2-5, 5.71).

Kole Calhoun, Luis Valbuena and the Los Angeles Angels seem to be hitting their way out of a long funk.

Valbuena homered twice http://www.dallascowboysteamonline.com/ … rns-jersey , Calhoun connected for the second consecutive game and the Angels defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 8-5 on Thursday night.

The Angels have won two straight after dropping seven of eight. They handed the Blue Jays their ninth loss in 10 road games.

Calhoun launched a two-run homer off John Axford (1-1) in the fourth inning to put the Angels ahead 4-3. The right fielder went 1 for 3 with a walk, scoring on Martin Maldonados double in the sixth, and is 4 for 10 in three games since returning from a stint on the disabled list because of a strained oblique muscle.

He looks so calm, so comfortable out there. I think hes seeing the ball much better, more plate coverage. All the things that lead to positive results seem to be in his game, Angels manager Mike Scioscia said of Calhoun, who was hitting .145 before the injury.

Valbuena made it 6-3 with his two-run shot to center field in the fifth, and added a solo drive to right in the seventh. It was his eighth career multihomer game.

The streaky Valbuena was 5 for 40 over his previous 11 games and hadnt homered in his last 18. Valbuena went deep twice in that game at Detroit on May 29, and Scioscia had thought that would mark the beginning of a turnaround.

He has the same belief now, and is willing to trade any barren stretches for when Valbuena gets in a groove.

If you look at Luis track record, he gets real hot and at times he gets cold, Scioscia said. Theres no doubt there is more OPS in his game, especially against right-handed pitching. Once he finds it http://www.indianapoliscoltsteamonline. … son-jersey , he usually swings the bat like he did the second half of last year, and thats something were going to need.

Even the Angels erratic bullpen did its part, as Noe Ramirez (3-3) retired all eight batters he faced striking out four after relieving John Lamb in the fourth. Justin Anderson got his third save.

Lamb, a late replacement for injured Los Angeles starter Tyler Skaggs, went 3 1/3 innings. Lamb gave up three runs, six hits and one walk in his first career start at home.

For the Blue Jays, they couldnt remedy their road woes despite home runs from Randal Grichuk, Lourdes Gurriel and Kendrys Morales.

They got a couple big homers off Ax. I mean, hes been dominating left-handers all year, and two leftys got him today. We hung around, but we just couldnt get anything going late, Toronto manager John Gibbons said.

TROUT AT 1,000

Mike Trout went 0 for 2 with three walks in his 1 http://www.washingtonredskinsteamonline … ick-jersey ,000th career game, ending his hitting streak at eight games. Trout, who has reached base in 31 of 47 plate appearances over his last nine games, was the designated hitter and is not expected to be used in the outfield during the four-game series because of a sprained right index finger.

TRAINERS ROOM

Blue Jays: Toronto starter Aaron Sanchez was pulled after the first inning due to a bruised right index finger. The Blue Jays said X-rays did not reveal any further injury. Hed been pitching pretty good lately, but hopefully this isnt a big deal, Gibbons said.

Angels: Skaggs was scratched because of tightness in his right hamstring. Scioscia said theres a chance Skaggs could start Sunday.

UP NEXT

Blue Jays: RHP Marco Estrada (4-6, 4.66 ERA) tries for his third straight win. Estrada has allowed three runs in 18 2/3 innings over his last three starts.

Angels: LHP Andrew Heaney (3-5, 3.64) has won three of his last four starts at home, including a one-hit shutout against Kansas City on June 5.
