Sparked by the debut of their new suburban stadium, the Braves swept San Diego in a four-game series and came in having won five straight overall, getting back to.500 after a 1-6 start. Harper's seven career homers off Teheran are his most against any pitcher. He's already matched his career total at Turner Field - he had a grand total of one homer at The Ted a year ago, and his first career dingeractually came in Atlanta - and even though Inciarte went into this season with nothing even approaching a power stroke, there's still something of a chance that with the way SunTrust Park plays, some of those balls that Inciarte pulls to right field could go over the fence and bounce their way into the Chop House. The Nationals had 20 hits. He suffered the injury on a check swing.
Atlanta first baseman Freddie Freeman was 2-for-2 with two walks. He's reached base in 10 consecutive plate appearances, the longest such streak for the Braves since Jason Heyward reached base in 10 straight in August 2010. On a 3-1 pitch, he grounded sharply to shortstop Wilmer Difo, who started an easy double play to end the inning.
Chicago trailed 4-1 before Willson Contreras' RBI single in the sixth Carlos Torres, and Russell's run-scoring single cut the deficit to one run in the eighth.
Nationals manager Dusty Baker said he was removing Blake Treinen from the closer's role. Right-handers Shawn Kelley and Koda Glover will share the job. He's got three saves, but his ERA climbed to 7.11.
Teheran has pitched like an ace in his first three starts of the season, giving up only two earned runs in 19 innings.
Rays 5, Tigers 1 • Matt Andriese outpitched Michael Fulmer, Tim Beckham hit a two-run homer, and host Tampa Bay beat Detroit.

Dodgers 4, Rockies 2: Clayton Kershaw struck out a season-high 10 in seven innings to lead Los Angeles over Colorado.
But after the handshakes were exchanged and both teams were basically on their way to their respective clubhouses, home plate umpire CB Bucknor made a freaky ruling and reversed the strikeout, claiming that the pitch was foul-tipped.
Pujols' second homer of the season gives him 54 in his career against the Astros, the most by any player against Houston. Kenley Jansen got his fourth save of the season.
