PHOENIX -- Arizona and Atlanta will turn to their top starters Wednesday in an attempt to get a leg up after splitting the first two games of a four-game set at Chase Field.Zack Greinke (11-4, 4.21) will oppose Julio Teheran (3-9, 2.90) in a series that so far has not had much to do with any of the starting pitchers.Atlanta overcame a 4-3 deficit against the Arizona bullpen on Matt Kemps go-ahead, bases-loaded double in the eighth inning of a 7-4 victory Tuesday. The Diamondbacks overcame a 5-0 deficit with a four-run eighth inning in a 9-8 victory in the opener Monday.Atlantas live young relief arms stood out Tuesday, giving manager Brian Snitker 6 1/3 scoreless innings in back of Rob Whalen, who was making his fifth major league start. Right-handers Jose Ramirez and Mauricio Cabrera struck out the side on either side of the Braves go-ahead, three-run eighth inning fueled by Matt Kemps two-run double.Ramirez gave up a leadoff triple in the last of the seventh inning with Arizona holding a 4-3 lead, but the runner got no further. Cabrera struck out the side around a two-out double to protect a 6-4 lead in the last of the eighth inning with third-strike fastballs that were clocked 100, 102 and 101 mph.All of them did a great job, manager Brian Snitker said.Greinke will be making his fourth start, and his first at home, since missing six weeks with a strained left oblique muscle. He had quality starts against the Mets in his return and at San Diego last Friday but was knocked around for nine runs and 10 hits in 1 2/3 innings at Boston on Aug. 14. He had a streak of eight straight winning decisions broken in Boston.Teheran has been victimized by the worst run support in the NL among qualifiers, similar to the predicament Shelby Miller found himself in with Atlanta last season. Teheran has received an average of 2.77 runs per game this season, leading to his misleading win-loss record. Miller received 2.54 runs of support last season, the lowest figure in the league since 1974.Atlanta added some offense at the July 31 trade deadline by acquiring Matt Kemp from San Diego, and Kemp supplied the game-winning hit with his bases-loaded, two-run double in the eighth inning Tuesday, when a third run scored on the play on an outfield.No matter the jersey, Kemp has no trouble hitting at Chase Field.Kemp hit two homers in an early-season here in Arizona while with San Diego, and he has 103 RBI in 134 career games against Arizona, 51 at Chase Field. He spent all of his 10-plus years in the NL West with the Dodgers and San Diego before coming to Atlanta.This is a nice field, nice backdrop, Kemp said. You see the ball well. Ive had some experience here.Kemp also drove in a run with a sacrifice fly Tuesday, giving him 81 for the season. He was deprived of another RBI when the official scorer ruled that the third runner scored on his bases-loaded double when the right fielder bobbled the ball at the fence.If I end up at 99, theres going to be trouble, Kemp said in jest.

The team also announced Tuesday that the Braves will wear a commemorative patch on the right sleeve during the season. The patch, shaped like home plate, carries the number 715, Aarons autograph and a "40th Anniversary" banner. After weeks of uncertainty, the WBA on Tuesday disclosed how it will handle its heavyweight situation, which was thrown into uncertainty when unified world champion Tyson Fury, dealing with alcohol, drug and mental health issues, vacated all of his belts last month.In the most significant development, the WBA said it would sanction a spring 2017 showdown for its super world title between Anthony Joshua, who also holds the IBF belt (which he would have to retain against Eric Molina on Dec. 10) and former world champion Wladimir Klitschko, who lost his belts to Fury in a huge November 2015 upset and had his Oct. 29 rematch canceled when Fury pulled out to deal with his personal problems.When that happened, the Joshua and Klitschko camps tried to make the fight for Dec. 10. However, with time running short to promote such a major fight, Klitschko suffering a minor calf injury, and the WBA still not having sanctioned the fight, they elected to put it off until March or April, probably in the United Kingdom, Joshuas home country.Klitschko manager Bernd Boente repeatedly told ESPN during the talks for the Joshua fight that having a WBA title on the line was a deal-breaker for Klitschko.Now Ukraines Klitschko (64-4, 54 KOs), 40, who has not boxed since the loss to Fury and will remain idle until the spring, has his wish; Joshua (17-0, 17 KOs), 27, will have a chance for a huge fight; and boxing fans will get perhaps the most anticipated match in the heavyweight division, provided the sides can finalize a deal, which both have said they do not believe will be an issue.Team Klitschko is very happy about this WBA resolution, Boente told ESPN on Tuesday night. Wladimir always was a proud and committed WBA super champion and now he wants to regain his title. From the beginning, Wladimir made clear how important it is to him that the WBA title is on the line in his next fight.Hopefully, Anthony Joshua wins his upcoming fight against Molina and then we have a mega event, a promoters dream fight coming true in March or April. Two Olympic super heavyweight gold-medal winners fighting each other, the young lion challenging the old lion. This is a fight each boxing fan around the world wants to see.Eddie Hearn, Joshuas promoter, earlier on Tuesday announced Joshuas fight with Molina, and suggested that things were on track for the Joshua-Klitschko showdown next year.Although the plans are for a major unification [fight] in the spring, this fight requires Anthonys full focus, Hearn said.In addition to agreeing to sanction Joshua-Klitschko for its super title, the WBA also said it would sanction a fight between Australias Lucas Browne (24-0, 21), 37, and 44-year-old Shannon Briggs (60-6-1, 53 KOs), a former two-time titleholder from Brooklyn, New York, for its vacant regular title as part of a legal settlement with Browne. Also, the winner of Browne-Briggs, a fight that was ordered to take place by Dec. 31, must face mandatory challenger Fres Oquendo within 120 days of the bout.Oquendo (37-8, 24 KOs), 43, of Chicago, won a case in U.S. federal court to force a WBA heavyweight title bout in the wake of his majority decision loss to Ruslan Chagaev for the vacant regular belt in July 2014.dddddddddddd Oquendo had a rematch clause in the contract but Chagaevs team attempted to set up another title defense first. It got even uglier when Oquendo claimed he was not paid for the fight, and the Chagaev team claimed Oquendo failed a drug test.Oquendos team sued in federal court to force the rematch and won an injunction to stop Chagaev from defending the belt against anyone other than Oquendo. But Oquendo has been idle since because of a shoulder injury that required surgery in November 2015, and even though Chagaev has retired, the WBA is still obligated to give Oquendo a title shot based on the court order. But since Oquendo is not available, Browne was ordered to face the leading available WBA contender, Briggs.Since absorbing a wicked beating at the hands of Vitali Klitschko in a 2010 world title fight that put him in the hospital for about two weeks, followed by a four-year retirement, Briggs has won nine fights in a row since his 2014 return, although he has faced extremely low-level opposition, hardly the kind of opponents that would ordinarily put a boxer in position to fight for a world title.As part of its ruling, the WBA also stripped Luis King Kong Ortiz of the interim belt for his failure to face mandatory challenger Alexander Ustinov after Ustinovs team won a recent purse bid.Failure to comply with the purse bid obligations or other WBA rules will result in a loss of [title] recognition, the WBA champions committee wrote in its ruling, a copy of which was obtained by ESPN. Ortiz has therefore relinquished the interim title.WBA president Gilberto Mendoza Jr. is in the process of ridding the organization of multiple world titles per division -- super, regular and interim belts -- and while it is not ideal to continue having multiple titles in the heavyweight division, Mendoza told ESPN that he remains committed to whittling each division down to one titleholder. But he said that Tuesdays resolution was the only one the organization had for its heavyweight title because it wanted to help facilitate the much-anticipated Joshua-Klitschko fight while also living up to its obligations to Browne and Oquendo.Initially my plan was to approve Klitschko versus Joshua for the WBA title, Mendoza said. The rest [I wanted] to have a box-off to earn the mandatory spot. Unfortunately, the justice system had a discrepancy with WBA new policy.As part of the WBA ruling, it said that Fury submitted a report from his psychologist confirming his clinical depression. The psychologist estimated that Fury would be fit to return to competition no earlier than late February 2017.The WBA went on to say that when Fury is prepared to fight again the organization will consider placing him back in its rankings and making him eligible to fight for its world title.
