Atlanta wrapped up their road trip in fine fashion.

MLB: Atlanta Braves at New York Mets Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

Julio Teheran flirted with a no-hitter and the Atlanta Braves’ offense flexed its muscles in an 11-0 win over the New York Mets Thursday afternoon. The Braves sweep the series and have now won five straight games.

Atlanta didn’t waste any time against Mets starter Jason Vargas as they scored three times in the first with the big blow coming off the bat of Kurt Suzuki.

Ronald Acuña Jr. had another three hit day including a mammoth home run into the second deck at Citi Field.

Nick Markakis went 3-for-4 at the plate with a double and his fifth home run of the season which gave Atlanta a 6-0 lead.

Not to be outdone, Ozzie Albies added a three-run bomb of his own in the seventh to blow the game wide open.

Julio Teheran came back from an injury scare in his last start and took a no-hitter into the seventh inning. He allowed two hits and two walks while striking out six.
