MIAMI (AP) - Jair Jurrjens gave up three hits in seven innings
Thursday, and the Atlanta Braves completed a two-game sweep of the
slumping Florida Marlins, 4-2.

Casey Kotchman homered and hit an RBI double for Atlanta. David
Ross had a two-run homer.

Jurrjens (3-2) allowed two runs, both on homers by Hanley
Ramirez. The right-hander's ERA rose to 2.01.

Marlins starter Anibal Sanchez (1-4) allowed two homers and four
runs in 4 2-3 innings before leaving the game because of discomfort
in his pitching shoulder. Sanchez underwent surgery on the shoulder
in June 2007 and returned last July.

Florida extended a club-record streak of 20 consecutive games
without a win by a starting pitcher. During that span the starters
are 0-10.
