Julio Teheran didn't require much assistance in the field Sunday night against the Giants, but when the Braves rookie pitcher needed it, slick glovework was provided. And so was Freddie Freeman's hot bat. Freeman had three hits, left fielder Justin Upton made a bases-loaded diving catch in the fourth inning, and Teheran and the Braves bullpen shut out the Giants 3-0 in a series finale at Turner Field. The Braves won consecutive games to take the three-game series, following a four-game losing streak and a 2-5 road trip against the Dodgers and Padres. They moved their NL East lead back to 6-1/2 games over Washington, and improved their majors-best home record to 23-8, including 15-3 in the past 18 games.
