Braves starter Julio Teheran found himself in hot water in the bottom of the second inning, giving up back-to-back singles to Yasiel Puig and Juan Uribe. After striking out Skip Schumaker, A.J. Ellis walked to load the bases for pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu. Ryu hit a sacrifice fly to right field, scoring Puig. With runners on the corners and two outs, Carl Crawford worked the count to 2-2 against Teheran before turning on an 84 MPH slider, sending it well beyond the fence in right field for a three-run home run, putting the Dodgers up 4-2.
After striking out Mark Ellis to end the inning, Teheran was visibly upset at himself, yelling forcefully into his glove while walking off the mound. He needed 30 pitches to get through the bottom of the second and now finds himself at 46 total. It could be a bullpen night for the Braves if Teheran can’t straight himself out quickly.
