Teheran was in great form from the get go, only allowing two balls hit to the outfield, a Freeman sac fly and a CJ homer staked him to an early lead. That didn’t last long though, as McCutchen got one of the balls hit to the outfield kept right on going out of the park to toe it up. Teheran got even nastier and retired 12 in a row.
Betty chipped in with an RBI single in the 4th and came around to score in the 7th after leading off with a single. Julio opened the 8th by getting a popout. His luck ran out there, and a couple of bleeders later, was lifted for Johnson, who quickly surrendered a grounder to advance the runners and a single to plate them both. The Braves got a baserunner in the bottom half but no runs. Grilli got through the ninth, and it looked like we’d probably go to extras with the bottom of the order up.
Betty must have had dinner plans though as he promptly took Vance Worley’s first pitch from off his shoes and dropped it over the right field wall for a walkoff oppo yicketty. That’s baseball for you and you take it knowing you’ve given up a few that way, but the pen is killing this team regardless of outcome.
