Julio Teheran has been a different pitcher away from Turner Field this season and his road struggles continued yet again Tuesday night in a 7-3 loss to the Baltimore Orioles.

Things begin well enough for the Braves Tuesday night as Freddie Freeman's 13th home run of the season gave Teheran two early runs to work with. The lead would be short lived however as Teheran allowed a lead off single to Manny Machado and then walked Jimmy Parades. Adam Jones lined out to first, but Chris Davis followed with a home run to right center to put the Orioles in front 3-2.

Davis struck again in the second with a two-run blast off of Teheran to make the score 5-2. Teheran lasted just four innings allowing five hits and five runs to go along with four walks and four strikeouts.

Baltimore added single runs in the fifth and sixth innings off of reliever Ross Detwiler. Caleb Joseph's RBI single in the fifth made the score 6-2 and Adam Jones chased Detwiler from the game with a double in the sixth. Andrew McKirahan did a good job of damage control in the sixth working his way out of a jam and pitched a scoreless seventh for the Braves.

Atlanta added another run in the eighth as Jace Peterson singled through the middle to score Adonis Garcia to cut Baltimore's lead to 7-3. That was as close as Atlanta would get as Chaz Roe struck out Freeman with one on in the ninth to end the game.

Ubaldo Jimenez picks up his eighth win of the season after allowing two runs on four hits over seven innings. Jimenez didn't allow a hit after the first inning. Davis' two home runs gave him 24 for the season and his five RBIs tied a career high. Nick Markakis and Jonny Gomes finished with two hits each for Atlanta.
