ATLANTA (AP) -- Julio Teheran gave up just three singles in six sharp innings and the Atlanta Braves beat the Cincinnati Reds 5-0 Sunday for a split of the four-game series.

Kelly Johnson and Jonny Gomes each homered for the Braves off Johnny Cueto (2-3).

Teheran (3-1), an NL All-Star last year, came into the game with a winning record despite three straight sub-par starts. He struck out five in a row during one point and fanned a season-high six overall.

Teheran was never threatened after the Braves built an early 4-0 lead. He walked two.

Three Atlanta relievers finished off the combined four-hitter.

Cueto was roughed up from the start, allowing five runs and nine hits in six innings.

Andrelton Simmons and Freddie Freeman hit back-to-back doubles in the first inning and Johnson followed that with a two-run drive. Johnson leads the Braves with five home runs.

NHL PLAYOFFS

WASHINGTON (AP) -- One goal was enough for the Washington Capitals in Game 3 of their second-round series with the New York Rangers.

Braden Holtby turned back 30 shots and Jay Beagle provided the lone tally in the Caps' 1-0 verdict over the Blueshirts. The Capitals were outshot in each period, but Holtby was up to the task in his second career playoff shutout, two years to the day he blanked the Rangers.

Henrik Lundqvist was perfect until Jay Beagle skated behind the net and banked a shot off the skate of Rangers defenseman Keith Yandle and into the net at 7:31 of the second period. The fluke goal gives the Capitals a two-games-to-one lead in the series.

Game 4 is Wednesday in Washington.

NHL-DEVILS-GENERAL MANAGER

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -- Lou Lamoriello (lam-uh-RIHL'-oh) is stepping down as the New Jersey Devils' general manager and handing the job to Ray Shero. Lamoriello will remain as president of hockey operations. The 72-year-old Lamoriello has led the Devils since 1987 and guided them to three Stanley Cups.

The 52-year-old Shero was let go as the Pittsburgh Penguins' general manager last May.

The Devils are still looking for a coach, and Lamoriello says Shero will make that hire.

MLB-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- The Milwaukee Brewers were winners in their first game under new management.

The Brewers put together a three-run eighth to beat the Dodgers 4-3 in Craig Counsell's first game as Milwaukee's skipper. Hector Gomez ignited the rally with a homer off Clayton Kershaw, who was trying to earn his 100th career victory. Carlos Gomez doubled home the tying run and scored on Ryan Braun's infield single.

The comeback gives the Brewers three straight wins since a 5-18 start.

Counsell was in the dugout one day after the team dismissed Ron Roenicke (REHN'-ih-kee). He received a three-year package to replace Roenicke, who compiled a 342-331 record with one division title in a little more than four seasons.

Counsell has no previous managing or coaching experience and spent the last three-plus seasons as special assistant to GM Doug Melvin. He had a 16-year career as a player, the last five with the Brewers before retiring in 2011.

Elsewhere in the majors:

-- R.A. Dickey gave up a run and three hits in eight innings to pitch Toronto past the New York Yankees 3-1. The game was tied 1-1 in the eighth until Edwin Encarnacion (ehn-kahr-nah-see-OHN') hit an RBI double and scored on Russell Martin's single.

-- Yunel (yoo-NEHL') Escobar was 5-for-5 with a tiebreaking, two-run single in the eighth inning of Washington's sixth victory in seven games, 6-4 over Miami. The Nationals trailed 4-2 in the eighth until Ian Desmond smacked a two-run homer.

-- Tampa Bay beat Boston 5-1 behind Jake Odorizzi (oh-doh-REE'-zee), who limited the Red Sox to a run and seven hits with six strikeouts in seven innings. Joey Butler socked a two-run homer and David DeJesus had two RBIs as the Rays handed the Bosox their fourth consecutive loss.

-- Jeff Francoeur (fran-KOOR') was 4-for-5 with an RBI double and a run-scoring triple in Philadelphia's 5-2 triumph in Atlanta. Winning pitcher Aaron Harang held his old team to a run and five hits in six innings.

MLB-BLUE JAYS-COACH SUSPENDED

TORONTO (AP) -- Blue Jays hitting coach Brook Jacoby has been suspended 14 games for his postgame conduct toward the umpires following an April 29 game at Boston.

Toronto catcher Russell Martin was called out on strikes by Adrian Johnson for the final out of Toronto's 4-1 loss, prompting members of the Blue Jays coaching staff to trade words with the umpiring crew as they left the field.

The Blue Jays intend to appeal Jacoby's suspension, although coaches and managers are required to begin serving their punishment as soon as it is issued. Jacoby is missing tonight's game against the New York Yankees.

NBA-MVP

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- The Golden State Warriors have their first NBA Most Valuable Player since the franchise was located in Philadelphia.

Point guard Stephen (STEH'-fehn) Curry has won the Maurice Podoloff (POH'-dah-lahf) Trophy by a sizeable margin. He received 100 of 130 first-place votes, while James Harden of Houston got 25 and Cleveland's LeBron James picked five.

Curry drained an NBA-record 286 3-pointers and averaged 23.8 points, 7.7 assists and 4.3 rebounds in helping the Warriors finish with a league-best 67 wins. He has averaged 20.9 points and 6.9 assists in six NBA seasons.

He's the franchise's first MVP since Wilt Chamberlain in 1960.

MLB-METS

NEW YORK (AP) -- The Mets say they plan to put catcher Johnny Monell on the major league roster before Tuesday night's game against Baltimore.

Monell is not on the 40-man roster, so the Mets will have to open a spot on it when they select his contract from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Unless there is a move, he would become the third catcher along with Anthony Recker and Kevin Plawecki while starter Travis d'Arnaud is on the disabled list after breaking a finger April 20. Monell is hitting .397 with four homers and 15 RBIs at Las Vegas.
