Atlanta pitcher Julio Teheran threw a three-hit shut-out and Evan Gattis homered as the Braves claimed their fifth straight win with a 1-0 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies.

Teheran's brilliance helped the Braves maintain their winning run to remain top of the National League East with 10 wins this season, opening up a 1.5 game lead over Washington.

In second, Washington Nationals kept the pressure on as home runs by Jayson Werth and Zach Walters powered them to a 6-3 comeback triumph over the Miami Marlins at Marlins Park.

Oakland Athletics, leaders in the West division, suffered a 5-4 defeat against Los Angeles Angels, whose come-from-behind win was inspired as Chris Iannetta powered a home run over Craig Gentry and over the centre-field fence.
