Braves Take Series From Cards

BY AP Sports

ATLANTA (AP) - Austin Riley went 3 for 4 and drove in a run, Julio

Teheran pitched five-plus scoreless innings and Atlanta won for the

fifth time in six games, beating the Cardinals 10-2.

Riley, who homered in his second major league at-bat Wednesday,

doubled off the top of the wall in the second inning and singled in

a run in the third. He scored twice.

Teheran (3-4) allowed two hits - a bloop single by Yadier Molina to

begin the fifth and a single by Paul Goldschmidt to begin the sixth

- and drove in two runs with a sacrifice bunt in the second and a

single in the third. Teheran, who has a 0.53 ERA over his last

three starts, walked four and struck out four.

St. Louis starter Adam Wainwright (3-4) gave up five runs, five

hits and five walks with two strikeouts in four innings. Marcel

Ozuna and Matt Carpenter hit solo homers for the Cardinals.

The Brewers are in Atlanta tonight to start a series.
