Braves no-hit bid ends in 7th after Teheran pulled vs Padres

June 17, 2018 - 3:50 pm

ATLANTA (AP) — The Atlanta Braves' bid for a combined no-hitter has ended as reliever Shane Carle allowed a single to San Diego's Cory Spangenberg with one out in the seventh inning.

Starter Julio Teheran was removed after allowing no hits through six innings. He struck out a season-high 11, walked three and threw 95 pitches Sunday.

Teheran was activated from the 10-day disabled list on Saturday. He had been out since June 5 with a sore right thumb.

Padres leadoff man Travis Jankowski drew a walk to begin the game and Jose Pirela was hit by a pitch later in the first inning. Teheran then recorded 15 consecutive outs before walking Jankowski with one out in the sixth.

The Braves lead 2-0.
