PHILADELPHIA -- Julio Teheran made his major league debut at Citizens Bank Park in 2011. He likes coming to Philadelphia, and it shows.Teheran pitched six sharp innings, Matt Kemp homered and the Atlanta Braves beat the Phillies 2-0 on Sunday for their sixth consecutive win.Teheran (5-9) allowed five hits and struck out seven while lowering his ERA to 3.01. The right-hander improved to 5-1 with a 1.55 ERA in six career starts in Philly.Everything is coming together, Teheran said. I feel really good. The last two innings I really battled, but I made pitches.Teheran cruised through the first four innings, and then wriggled out of bases-loaded jams in the fifth and sixth. Maikel Franco grounded out for the final out of the fifth and Peter Bourjos lined to right on Teherans final pitch.He was really good, Braves manager Brian Snitker said. That last inning he battled his butt off. Hes healthy now and his velocity is back up. Hes back where he needs to be.Jim Johnson worked the ninth for his 15th save, finishing a five-hitter.Kemp, who was acquired in a July 30 trade with San Diego, hit a leadoff drive in the second for his 28th homer. Freddie Freeman added another leadoff drive in the eighth for his 29th of the year.We got off to a really bad start this season, but Brian made us keep a low profile and everything is now going well, Freeman said. Matt has been a big contributor, too. He got us going today.Philadelphia dropped its sixth consecutive game, wasting another solid start by Jake Thompson (1-5). The rookie right-hander allowed four hits, struck out six and walked four in seven innings.This was a miserable homestand and theres not much good to talk about, Phillies manager Pete Mackanin said. However, it was very good to see Thompson pitch the way he did. It was great to see.Chris Withrow and Ian Krol each pitched a hitless inning before Johnson struck out the side, helping the Braves match their longest winning streak of the season.Like Teheran, Thompson got into a couple of jams but also pitched out of them, getting Nick Markakis to ground into a double play to escape a bases-loaded situation in the sixth and retiring Adonis Garcia on a grounder to third with the bases loaded in the seventh.The loss for the Phillies marked only the fourth time in franchise history that they dropped every game of a homestand of six games or longer. They also did it earlier this season. The other two times were in 1883 and 1964.SURGINGAtlanta center fielder Ender Inciarte extended his hitting streak to 15 games with a single in the sixth inning. ... Freeman extended his hitting streak to 11 games with a double in the fourth inning. He has reached safely in 27 straight for the longest active streak in the majors. The double was the 200th of his career.PUNCHLESS PHILLIESThe Phillies were shut out for the eighth time this season. They have scored the fewest runs in the majors this season (500) and only scored 11 runs in the six-game home stand.REINFORCEMENTS COMINGAfter shutting down Vince Velazquez following his start Saturday because he reached his innings limit, Phillies general manager Matt Klentak said Alec Asher likely would be recalled to take his place in the rotation. Klentak said he expected about a half-dozen more players to be recalled once the minor league playoff season ends.UP NEXTBraves: RHP Ryan Weber (1-0, 5.24 ERA) opposes Nationals RHP Max Scherzer (15-7, 2.89 ERA) in the opener of a three-game series in Washington on Monday afternoon.Phillies: RHP Jerad Eickhoff (9-13, 3.90 ERA) faces Marlins RHP Jake Esch (0-0, 4.15 ERA) in the first game of a three-game series in Miami on Monday afternoon.

The 17-year-old native of Marystown, N.L., pulled out of Skate Canada International last month in Saint John, N.B., with the same problem. PITTSBURGH -- Pitt and Penn State spent the days leading up to the renewal of their once annual series in a semantic argument over whether theyre still rivals.The Nittany Lions tried to downplay the stakes, with coach James Franklin pointing out the current roster on both sides were toddlers the last time the two schools faced each other in 2000. The Panthers went the other way, with coach Pat Narduzzi bringing in the 1976 national championship team to give a pep talk on what facing Penn State used to -- and still could -- mean.Four quarters, nearly four hours and one well-timed interception by a fifth-year cornerback later, consider the debate over. Pitt-Penn State is still very much a thing.James Conner ran for 117 yards and a touchdown and caught another and senior Ryan Lewis picked off Penn State quarterback Trace McSorley in the end zone with just over a minute to play as the Panthers held on for a 42-39 victory on Saturday in front of the largest crowd to watch a sporting event in the citys history -- 69,983.I would say going to next year, theyre going to think its a rivalry now, said Pitt safety Jordan Whitehead.One that shouldnt lack for juice when the two teams meet at Beaver Stadium next fall. Penn State nearly made it all the way back from a 21-point deficit. The Nittany Lions had the ball at the Pitt 31 with less than 90 seconds to play when McSorley dropped back and lofted a rainbow toward the back of the end zone to no one in particularLewis, who spent four long years in the program before finally earning significant playing time this fall, cradled it in his arms for the first pick of his career.I was just reading the quarterback the whole time, Lewis. I saw it in the air and took it.And dealt Franklin another significant blow in a tenure that is still searching for traction. A year after losing on the road in Philadelphia to Temple -- next weeks opponent -- the Nittany Lions currently dont have bragging rights in any corner of the state after looking flat in the first half before getting back in it.The fact it was this close at the end of the game speaks volumes for us in the second half, Franklin said. But were going to have a hard time if we get ourselves into a 28-7 situation.Saquon Barkley almost sinnglehandedly brought the Nittany Lions (1-1) all the way back.dddddddddddd The sophomore running back totaled five touchdowns (four rushing, one receiving), the most by a Penn State player since Ki-Jana Carter did it against Michigan State in 1994. Barkleys fifth score, a 2-yard dive with five minutes to play, drew the Nittany Lions within three.We started off slow, they punched us in the mouth first, Barkley said. We responded but weve just got to come out earlier and be ready to play earlier.SO CLOSEMoments before Lewis interception, McSorley threw a lob to wide-open DaeSean Hamilton, who was behind the Pitt defense and had nothing between himself and the go-ahead score. The ball smacked off Hamiltons hands and onto the turf instead.For us to get that close and not pull out a win is really upsetting, Hamilton said. It just comes down to crunch time, us battling back so far and to see the game slip away from me right there is the hardest part.THE TAKEAWAYPENN STATE: Barkley is a star in the making but the Nittany Lions curiously didnt get him the ball when it was deep in Pitt territory trailing by a touchdown early in the fourth quarter. Penn State settled for a field goal instead and will have a year to think about what might have been.PITT: First-year offensive coordinator Matt Canadas playbook is deep. A week after using a nondescript game plan to get past Villanova, Canada used a variety of jet sweeps, shovel passes and play-action to get the ball to his playmakers in space. The Panthers ran for 359 yards and held onto the ball for more than 35 minutes.UP NEXTPENN STATE: Welcomes the Owls to State College in a rematch of Temples one-sided 27-10 win last year. Penn State plans to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Joe Paternos first game as coach, a decision that has been met with stiff resistance in some areas, including the schools student newspaper.PITT: The Panthers head west on Saturday to take on No. 22 Oklahoma State (1-1) for the first time in program history.
