9/28/2016 Julio Teherán, Atl, P
Teheran gave up six runs and 10 hits in four innings of Atlanta's 7-6 win over the Phillies on Tuesday.

Analysis: This is likely the last start of the season for Teheran, who posted an outstanding 3.33 ERA but only finished with six wins thanks to a horrendous lack of run support.
9/28/2016 Tyler Flowers, Atl, C
Flowers went 2 for 4 with a three-run homer in a 7-6 win over the Phillies on Tuesday.

Freeman hit his career-high 33rd homer and stretched his career-best hitting streak to 29 games, helping the Atlanta Braves begin their final homestand at Turner Field with a 7-6 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night.

Analysis: He's especially been on fire in his last 12, hitting .488. Freeman also reached base for the 45th straight game, the second-longest streak in the majors this season behind Washington's Jayson Werth (46), and his home run gave him his NL-leading 82nd extra-base hit. The franchise record is 87, set by third baseman Chipper Jones when he won the NL MVP Award in 1999.

9/28/2016 Daniel Mengden, Oak, P
Mengden gave up all eight runs and nine hits in just over three innings of an 8-1 loss to the Angels on Tuesday.

Analysis: Oakland manager Bob Melvin was nonetheless encouraged by what he's seen from the 23-year-old, who has a 6.50 ERA in 14 starts. ''I think he learned that he can pitch here,'' Melvin aid. ''I think he learned when he's aggressive and gets ahead, he can have success. It's a little bit when he's on the run and guys are on base, and maybe he isn't as confident in his fastball or throwing the ball over the plate early in the count.
9/28/2016 Ricky Nolasco, LAA, P
Nolasco allowed only one unearned in eight innings of the Angels' 8-1 win over the A's on Tuesday.

Analysis: Nolasco had struggled in his first five starts for the Angels but improved to 4-2 with a 1.47 ERA in his last six starts.
