Julio Teheran struggled as the Atlanta Braves dropped their opener in San Diego 11-4.
Not many highlights for Atlanta in this one but Charlie Culberson continued his recent surge with a two-run double in the fourth inning that briefly tied the score. Culberson finished the game with two hits.
Dansby Swanson went 1-for-4 at the plate and provided this defensive highlight with the nice sliding grab and throw to rob Hunter Renfroe of a hit.
