Teheran shines as Braves sweep Mets

ATLANTA (AP) - Julio Teheran gave up only one hit in seven scoreless innings, Pedro Ciriaco's pinch-hit single in the seventh scored the only run and the Atlanta Braves shut out the New York Mets 1-0 on Sunday to complete a three-game sweep.
   
The Mets have lost five straight and scored no more than one run in four of the losses.
   
Matt Harvey (7-5) matched Teheran through six scoreless innings before giving up Ryan Lavarnway's two-out double and Ciriaco's run-scoring single up the middle.
   
Teheran (5-3) improved to 4-0 at Turner Field. He allowed two walks - both to Curtis Granderson - with five strikeouts.
   
Right-hander Jim Johnson pitched out of a ninth-inning jam for his fourth save. Closer Jason Grilli was unavailable after earning saves in the first two games of the series.
