The Atlanta Braves are 23-46 and in last place in the National League East, but after sweeping the New York Mets over the weekend, they have won five games straight making it their longest winning streak of the season.

On Friday, they tagged Matt Harvey for four runs on seven hits, knocking him out after six, to win game one 5-1.

On Saturday, Braves starter Aaron Blair battled with Mets Steven Matz for six innings, but it was the Mets bullpen that allowed Atlanta back in the game and blew away a chance for Matz to earn the victory.

On Father’s Day, starter Julio Teheran, who was just 2-7 entering the game, threw a masterpiece tossing a complete game 1-hit shutout, with seven strikeouts to out-duel Jacob deGrom who dropped to 3-4.

After retiring the first six batter of the game, Teheran gave up a lead off single to Michael Conforto in the third, but then shut the door on the Mets and the game. The Colombian native was just outstanding mixing up a 93 MPH 4-seam fastball with a 72 MPH curveball. He had the Mets batters off-balance all game long.

Teheran threw 120 pitches with 82 for strikes, leading his team to a 6-0 victory and clearly for a day was the best pitcher on the mound.
