Jones raises average to .403, Braves beat Rockies

DENVER (AP) - Chipper Jones hit a two-run single in the fifth to break open a scoreless game, Jair Jurrjens pitched into the eighth inning without allowing a run and the Atlanta Braves beat the Colorado Rockies 7-1 on Monday night.

The contest was a makeup from a snow-out on April 10.

Jones, mired in a 2-for-15 slump entering the game, finished 2-for-4 with a walk, raising his average a point to .403.

Jeff Francoeur had two hits, including a two-run double in the seventh, and Brandon Jones added a two-out, two-run single in the ninth.
