PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Jair Jurrjens and four relievers combined on
a six-hitter, Kelly Johnson and Chipper Jones hit solo homers and
the Atlanta Braves beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-0 on Tuesday
night.

The defending World Series champions are off to an 0-2 start for
the fourth straight year. They'll receive their rings before trying
to avoid a three-game sweep on Wednesday.

Jurrjens (1-0) beat a pitcher twice his age, 46-year-old Jamie
Moyer. The right-hander gave up four hits and walked three in 5 2-3
impressive innings.

Jeff Bennett gave up a single to the only batter he faced before
Eric O'Flaherty got the next four outs. Rafael Soriano pitched the
eighth and Mike Gonzalez finished.
