ATLANTA (AP) — Julio Teheran pitched six-plus scoreless innings, and the Atlanta Braves used a four-run third inning to beat Patrick Corbin and the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-1 on Sunday.

Teheran (7-6) allowed four hits and three walks, striking out six, before Jesse Biddle replaced him with one out in the seventh and stranded two runners.

Arizona has lost 10 of 16, but it began the day leading the NL West by one-half game.

The Diamondbacks headed home with their 17th series win with a minimum of three games, tied for the most before the All-Star break in club history. They also matched last year’s franchise record with 53 wins at the season’s halfway mark.

Corbin (6-4) extended his winless streak to seven starts after he gave up six hits, four runs and one walk in six innings. The left-hander struck out three, a season low.

The Braves went ahead 4-0 in the third. Johan Camargo singled and scored from first on Dansby Swanson’s double down the third-base line. Swanson advanced to third on Teheran’s bunt and scored on Ozzie Albies’ infield single.

Albies advanced to third on his single when third baseman Jake Lamb threw errantly to first. Albies then scored on Freddie Freeman’s double, and Freeman scored on Nick Markakis’ bloop single.

Preston Tucker’s pinch-hit homer in the seventh off Randall Delgado put the Braves up 5-0. John Jay homered off Dan Winkler in the eighth to make it 5-1.

Teheran pitched around a leadoff double by Daniel Descalso in the third and a leadoff single by Paul Goldschmidt in the fourth.

He gave up a leadoff single to A.J. Pollock in the seventh, but quickly picked him off. Teheran’s day ended after he gave up a double to Lamb and issued a walk.

DIFFERENT RESULT

Corbin began the day 4-0 with a 0.98 ERA in five career starts and two relief appearances against Atlanta, but he couldn’t overcome the 31-pitch third.
