(AP) — Julio Teheran found his go-to slider for the first time since the Braves moved into their new home last season.

Teheran outpitched Aaron Nola for a rare night of success at SunTrust Park and Atlanta snapped the Philadelphia Phillies’ six-game winning streak with a 2-1 victory Monday night.

Teheran (1-1) allowed one run, five hits and three walks with nine strikeouts in six innings. He began the night 3-10 with a 6.20 ERA and 21 homers allowed in 19 starts at the Braves’ second-year stadium, but Teheran kept the Phillies guessing.

“I used a lot of my slider and my fastball,” Teheran said. “I was thinking first strike and I was doing really good. Whenever I throw a first-pitch strike, it’s different then. That’s something I’ve really been working on.” READ MORE>
