A series sweep was not in the cards on Sunday.

Julio Teheran struggled from the get-go on Sunday afternoon, as the Milwaukee Brewers routed the Atlanta Braves 7-0 at SunTrust Park.

Teheran induced a double play from Eric Thames with the second batter of the game, but it was all downhill after that. Domingo Santana followed with a sharp single to center and Travis Shaw made it 2-0 with a tape-measure shot off the roof of the H&F Burger restaurant in right field.

The Braves offense helped none, and Teheran’s performance cascaded into a disappointing outing at home, where he fell to 1-6 on the season.

Keon Broxton extended the lead to 3-0 in the second inning with a wall-scraper to right field, that landed just beyond the monkey grass on the top of the wall.

Teheran recorded consecutive outs to begin the third inning, but the next five batters reached, as the Brewers alternated hits and walks to score three more runs and take a 6-0 edge.

Santana and Broxton combined for more than half of the Brewers’ hit total, as each registered 3-for-4 outings, with the team having 11 hits total.

The Braves hoped to coax another inning or two out of Teheran, but pitcher Zach Davies laced a double on the first pitch of the fourth inning and he was relieved by Luke Jackson.

Jackson allowed the inherited runner to score but otherwise did a tremendous job of saving the bullpen. He went four scoreless innings, allowing just two hits while striking out four hitters.

Teheran’s final line read three innings, seven hits, seven runs, two walks and three strikeouts.

Davies did not strike a batter out in his outing, but hurled seven scoreless innings, allowing just four hits.

Ender Inciarte singled in the first inning and was the only Brave with a multi-hit performance.

The Braves put a pair of runners on in the second inning, but Matt Adams was picked off at second base on a throw behind him from the catcher. Johan Camargo followed with a single that would have likely loaded the bases, but the Braves could not capitalize on the opportunity.

Camargo was the only other Brave to reach second base the rest of the contest, as he did so after walking and advancing on a subsequent hit in his other two plate appearances.

The Braves have an off day on Monday before beginning a six-game road trip against the Padres on Tuesday evening.
