Braves' Teheran hopes for home improvement vs. Pirates

ATLANTA -- The Wednesday start may be the most important of the season for the Pittsburgh Pirates' Trevor Williams.

With the injured player he replaced in the rotation on the verge of returning, the right-hander will be under the microscope when he takes the mound against the Atlanta Braves at SunTrust Park.

Williams (2-3, 6.04 ERA) will make his 10th appearance and fourth start when he faces Atlanta ace Julio Teheran (3-4, 5.47 ERA) in the third game of the four-game series. The Braves won the first two games, including a 6-5, walk-off victory Tuesday.
