Atlanta right-hander Julio Teheran blanked the Milwaukee Brewers on six hits, leading the Braves toa 5-0 win on Tuesday night.
It was the season-high fourth straight loss for Milwaukee, which has now been shut out twice and scored only five runs during the skid.
The Brewers also lost starter Yovani Gallardo in the fourth after spraining his left ankle. X-rays were negative, but Gallardo is questionable for his next start.
Gallardo (2-3) hasn’t won since April 6th at Boston. Since then, he is 0-3 with five no-decisions.
The Brewers are 1-4 on their current 10-game road trip and have dropped 12 of their last 19 games. The Brewers are still in first place in the National League Central, but their lead over St. Louis is down to 2 1/2 games.
Kyle Lohse (5-1) pitches game 3 of the series for the Brewers tonight.
