ATLANTA (AP) - Kenshin Kawakami outlasted Roy Halladay and
combined with Mike Gonzalez on a four-hitter to lead the Atlanta
Braves past the Toronto Blue Jays 1-0 on Friday night in the
interleague opener for both teams.

Kawakami (3-5) lasted eight innings - his longest outing of the
season - and gave up only three hits with no walks and seven
strikeouts. Casey Kotchman drove in the only run with an
eighth-inning sacrifice fly.

Halladay gave up five hits with one walk and six strikeouts in
seven scoreless innings, ending his streak of wins in five straight
starts.

Gonzalez escaped a jam in the ninth for his seventh save.
