KISSIMMEE, Fla. — Julio Teheran worked around six base runners to match Jordan Zimmermann with three scoreless innings and lead the Atlanta Braves to a 3-2 win over the Washington Nationals on Thursday night.

Teheran, who won 14 games as a rookie last season, gave up four hits, walked one, hit another and threw a wild pitch. But he now has five scoreless innings against the Nationals this spring after allowing just one run while winning his final two starts against them last season.

Zimmermann struck out four, giving up two hits and one walk. The 19-game winner from last season struck out Freddie Freeman on a slider with runners on first and third to end his final inning.

Ross Ohlendorf didn't get an out in his first appearance of the spring for the Nationals, giving up three hits and a walk before leaving with the trainer in the Braves' two-run sixth. He has been bother by side and finger issues.
