"I was in between naps", Roberts said. "That's the reality right now". "You add him to the pitching staff we already have, obviously it makes us considerably better". It became a one-run lead when Josh Ravin served up a two-run home run to Johan Comargo in the bottom of the eighth. The right-hander struck out two while walking one in the ballgame.
"I was excited", the manager said. "It was fun to watch".
While fighting for his spot in the rotation, Maeda has posted a 2.09 ERA in his past seven starts with a 1.06 WHIP.
There would be no comeback for the Dodgers this time as Arodys Vizcaino pitched a 1-2-3 ninth inning for his third save of the season.
Doubles by Yasiel Puig and Chris Taylor produced the first run. And Puig manufactured a run in the fifth by leading off with a single, moving to second on a bunt by Maeda then scoring on a steal of third and wild throw by Flowers.
Teheran also did not factor in the decision, allowing three runs on four hits with no walks and four strikeouts in five innings.
The Braves have lost 12 of 15 since reaching.500 at 45-45 on July 16. Nick Markakis hit a grounder that was deflected off Avilan to Logan Forsythe at second base. Arodys Vizcaino, who has taken the closer's role from Jim Johnson, pitched a flawless ninth for his third save.
Braves: Teheran left the game after five innings with cramping in his right thigh. Watson retired the side, stranding the tying run at third base when he got Freddie Freeman on a soft liner to third baseman Justin Turner. He said Darvish replied to say "his English is good but his text response is not very good".

Teheran was 6-0 with a 2.53 ERA away from Atlanta before allowing three homers in that defeat to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Albies became the youngest player in the majors with his promotion from Triple-A Gwinnett.
The right-hander came out of the bullpen for a home start last week against Minnesota. Brock Stewart allowed two runs in four innings for Los Angeles.
The Dodgers' offense backed him with single runs in the third, fourth and fifth innings.
Tyler Flowers hit a tiebreaking, pinch-hit, two-run home run in the eighth inning to lift the Atlanta Braves to a 5-3 win over Los Angeles on Wednesday night, ending the Dodgers' nine-game win streak.
