Aug. 16, 2014 ATLANTA (AP) -- Chris Johnson drove in two runs with three hits, Julio Teheran threw six strong innings and the Atlanta Braves edged the suddenly struggling Oakland Athletics 4-3 on Saturday night.
The A's, who began the day with the best record in the majors, matched their worst skid of the season by losing four in a row. They've dropped six of seven overall.
Teheran (11-9) gave up two runs on four hits and three walks. The Braves had lost 12 of 15 before winning the first two games of the series.
Craig Kimbrel got his 36th save in 40 chances.
Sonny Gray (12-7) allowed four runs in 5 1-3 innings in his fourth straight defeat.
There was a brief delay in the bottom of the sixth when a nude man ran onto the field. He was quickly tackled by security officers and taken off the field.
