Chipper Drives in Two

ATLANTA (AP) - Chipper Jones drove in two runs, including a
tiebreaking single, and the Atlanta Braves beat Washington 8-5 on
Sunday to hand the Nationals their sixth straight loss to start the season.

Jair Jurrjens (2-0) gave up five hits and five walks in 5 1-3 innings but allowed only four runs, three earned, to give the Braves a sweep of the three-game series.

The Braves scored their first five runs on two-out rallies in the fourth and fifth to beat Scott Olsen (0-2), who gave up six hits and five runs in five innings.

Rafael Soriano pitched a perfect ninth for his first save.
