23-year-old Julio Teheran will be going for his fifth straight win for the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday night when he faces Colorado Rockies rookie Eddie Butler, who will be making just his second Major League start.
Julio Teheran continued his fantastic start to the season last week when he pitched seven strong innings against the Arizona on his way to picking up his sixth win of the year. He allowed just two earned runs in that outing on five hits while striking out seven and walking one. The young right-hander is now 6-3 on the season and currently has a league-best 1.89 ERA.
All-Star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki has had a tough time figuring out Teheran, going 0-for-7 against him with a walk and four strikeouts. No one on the Rockies has been able to hit a home run off of him yet, but DJ LeMahieu has been able to get two doubles off of him in four career at-bats.
In the first start of his career last Friday, 23-year-old Eddie Butler ended up taking the loss against the Los Angeles Dodgers at home. He pitched 5.1 innings in that start and allowed six earned runs on 10 hits while walking three batters and striking out just two. He had a tough time getting his command down in that outing, throwing just 53 of his 87 pitches for strikes.
