MIAMI (AP) -- Julio Teheran pitched six sharp innings, rookie Austin Riley scored the only run and the Atlanta Braves edged the Miami Marlins 1-0 on Saturday.

The Braves won despite getting only three hits and improved to 5-0 this season at Marlins Park. Miami had just four hits.

Teheran (4-4) gave up two hits and struck out five. He has not allowed more than one earned run in each of his last seven starts.

Luke Jackson recorded four outs for his ninth save. With two outs and runners at the corner in the eighth, Miami's Brian Anderson hit a slow roller to third base and was out in a close play -- a replay confirmed the call.

Riley hustled for a leadoff double in the seventh against Trevor Richards (3-6), took third on a flyout and scored on Tyler Flowers' sacrifice fly.

Richards gave up two hits in seven innings.
