ATLANTA (AP) - Julio Teheran of the Atlanta Braves lost his bid for a perfect game against the Philadelphia Phillies when Freddy Galvis lined a single up the middle leading off the seventh inning.

Teheran struck out six and walked none through six innings.

The 24-year-old right-hander received an ovation from the small crowd at Turner Field after the single by Galvis.

Teheran was helped by strong defense in the first inning Sunday. Atlanta second baseman Jace Peterson made a leaping catch of a liner hit by Odubel Herrera to end the inning.
