Julio Teheran struggled in his last start but bounced back in a big way on Friday allowing just two hits while striking out four over six shutout innings against the Cardinals.
Cardinals’ reliever Austin Gomber came into the game with the bases loaded and threw exactly one pitch which hit Ender Inciarte in the top of the helmet to give the Braves a 1-0 lead.
Johan Camargo provided some insurance in the eighth with this two-run double to the left field gap to make the score 3-0. Camargo had a big day at the plate going 3-for-5 with two RBIs and two runs scored.

Dansby Swanson also had three hits on the night and this nifty play in the field playing the carom off Camargo at third to record the out.
