Braves’ pitcher Julio Teheran will have extra pressure on his shoulders as he gets ready for his second start when Atlanta and Pittsburgh conclude this three-game series Sunday. Teheran tossed six scoreless innings which saw him try fastballs and offspeed stuff during Monday’s Opening Day loss to the Mets.
Pirates right handed Gerrit Cole will try to vindicate himself after his Opening Day meltdown on Monday against the Red Sox. Cole threw 4 2/3 scoreless innings before giving away five runs in the fifth during a 5-3 loss in Boston.
