Braves' Teheran hopes for fifth straight opening-day start

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) Julio Teheran is lined up to make his fifth straight opening-day start for the Atlanta Braves.

"I've been there the last four years, and that's a spot I want to be my whole career," the 27-year-old right-hander said Wednesday after pitching five innings in a 5-3 exhibition win over Philadelphia. "To be there, you've got to gain that spot. I'm working to show them I can be that guy and that I can represent."

Teheran is 3-0 with a 1.29 ERA in 14 innings during spring training. He was 11-13 with a 4.49 ERA last season, almost a run above his 3.59 career ERA.
