Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - Julio Teheran carried a no-hitter into the eighth inning as the Atlanta Braves blanked Pittsburgh Pirates, 5-0, on Wednesday to complete a three-game series sweep at Turner Field. With two outs in the top of the eighth, Brandon Inge laced a clean single to left field for the Pirates' only hit of the game. Teheran (4-2) struck out 11, walked two and hit a pair of batters over eight innings to earn the win. Evan Gattis and Gerald Laird hit back-to-back solo homers in the sixth, while Chris Johnson and Dan Uggla added one RBI apiece for the Braves, winners in five straight. Pirates starter Wandy Rodriguez (6-4) left the game with one out in the first inning with tightness in his left forearm. He gave up one run on two hits before exiting.

Final Score: Philadelphia 6, Miami 1

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Cole Hamels hurled seven innings of one- run ball to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 6-1 win over the Miami Marlins to complete a three-game sweep at Citizens Bank Park. After going 0-6 with a 4.95 earned run average over six starts in May, Hamels (2-9) finally turned things around to earn his first win since April 28. He scattered four hits and struck out a season-high 11 batters in his best outing of the year. Domonic Brown hit a two-run homer and Ryan Howard tripled and drove in a pair for the Phillies, who have won a season-high four straight games. Derek Dietrich accounted for the Marlins' lone run with a solo homer. A.J. Ramos (0-2) absorbed the loss after getting knocked around during a five-run seventh for Philadelphia.

Final Score: Oakland 6, Milwaukee 1

Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - Bartolo Colon may be one of 20 MLB players alleged to have used banned substances from the Biogenesis clinic, but that didn't stop him from having another great outing. Colon pitched seven innings of one-run baseball and the Oakland Athletics defeated the Milwaukee Brewers, 6-1, in the finale of a three-game interleague series at Miller Park. The 40-year-old Colon (7-2), who was suspended 50 games for a positive testosterone test last August, allowed eight hits and two walks to pick up his fourth straight win. He has allowed just two runs over his last four starts (30 innings), including a shutout against the Chicago White Sox on Friday. The Athletics scored five runs in the seventh inning, capped off with a three-run home run by Brandon Moss. Josh Donaldson went 3-for-4 with two RBI and Jed Lowrie scored twice in the victory, Oakland's fifth in the last six games. Carlos Gomez drove in the lone run for the Brewers, who saw starter Yovani Gallardo (4-6) allow all five runs on six hits and a walk in six-plus innings.

Final Score: Toronto 4, San Francisco 0

San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) - Making his second start in a National League stadium since being traded to the American League, R.A. Dickey displayed the form that earned him last season's Cy Young Award for the Senior Circuit. The Toronto Blue Jays knuckleball specialist fired 8 1/3 terrific innings to lead his team to a 4-0 decision over San Francisco, the Giants' first loss at AT&T Park with Barry Zito on the mound in 10 months. Dickey (5-7) entered the matchup with a disappointing 5.18 ERA over his initial 12 assignments with the Jays, who acquired the former New York Mets ace via trade back in December, and had been battered for 12 runs and 20 hits over his two most recent outings. He resembled the 2012 version on Wednesday, however, limiting the Giants to a pair of singles and two walks before being removed in favor of closer Casey Janssen with two on and one out in the ninth. Dickey shined at the plate as well, lashing an RBI double to break a scoreless tie during a four-run fifth inning that dealt Zito (4-4) his first home loss since a 9-1 setback to the Mets on Aug. 2 of last season. Including Game 1 of the 2012 World Series, San Francisco had come out on top in 14 straight home contests that Zito started. Mark DeRosa added a two-run single and Adam Lind went 3-for-4 to help Toronto earn a split of the two-game interleague series. Zito permitted seven hits, four of which came during the fateful fifth, and three walks in the loss, the sixth in nine games for San Francisco.
