Teheran didn't factor into the decision in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Giants, allowing one run on three hits and three walks over 5.2 innings while striking out six. The right-hander got the hook one out shy of a quality start after throwing 94 pitches (57 strikes), then had to watch his fourth win of the year slip away when Luke Jackson blew the save in the ninth. Teheran will take a 3.67 ERA and 62:29 K:BB through 61.1 innings into his next outing Sunday in St. Louis.
Teheran (3-4) picked up the win against the Cardinals on Thursday, giving up no runs on two hits over five innings, striking out four and walking four as the Braves bagged a 10-2 victory. He didn't work deep into the game, as he issued four free passes and needed 104 pitches to make it through five innings, but Teheran turned in a solid line while cruising to the victory as the Braves provided him with plenty of run support. The right-hander now sports a 3.88 ERA and a 1.28 WHIP to go along with a 56:26 K:BB over 55.2 innings.
Teheran allowed one run on three hits and two walks while striking out four over six innings in a no-decision against the Diamondbacks on Friday. With just one run allowed in his last two starts (12 innings), Teheran has brought his ERA for the season down more than a full run to 4.26. He has quality starts in three of his last four outings, and each of those quality starts came on the road, which is a good sign after his early season struggles away from SunTrust Park. Teheran lines up for a home start against the Cardinals next before a road two step the week of May 20.
Teheran allowed no runs on two hits with four strikeouts and two walks across six innings in a no-decision against the Marlins on Sunday. The 28-year-old threw an absolute dandy, but so did his counterpart, Pablo Lopez, and neither starter left victorious in this pitcher's duel. Despite the no-decision, Teheran really needed this kind of start, though, as he had yielded 12 runs in 17.2 innings across three starts prior to Sunday. He is 2-4 with a 4.63 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 48 strikeouts in 44.2 innings this year. Teheran will make his next start against the Diamondbacks on the road Friday.
Teheran (2-4) allowed four earned runs on five hits and one walk while striking out eight across seven innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Padres. Teheran was taken deep three times -- all solo shots -- to account for three of the four earned runs he surrendered. However, he did continue to produce strikeouts, and he now has at least six punchouts in seven of his eight starts this season. Despite the K's, he has a bloated 5.35 ERA and 1.45 WHIP across 38.2 innings thanks to allowing 4.2 BB/9 and 1.9 HR/9. He will look to get right against the Marlins in Miami on Sunday.
