ATLANTA (AP) - Jair Jurrjens allowed his first hit with two outs
in the seventh inning on a night the Atlanta Braves finally gave
him some run support, beating the reeling Philadelphia Phillies
11-1 on Wednesday.

Jurrjens (6-6) began the night with the seventh-lowest run
support in the majors, including only five runs in his last four
losses. That lack of support ended as the Braves scored seven runs
off Cole Hamels (4-5), who left the game after giving up three hits
and a walk in the fifth.

Matt Diaz added a two-run homer and Diory Hernandez hit his
first major league homer, each off Tyler Walker in the six-run
fifth inning. Diaz had three hits.
