Jurrjens' arm, bat figure in Braves' victory

By  | 

DENVER (AP) - Jair Jurrjens pitched six strong innings and
singled twice to drive in a run and score a run, leading the
Atlanta Braves past the Colorado Rockies 4-3 on Saturday night.

Jurrjens (7-7) won for just the second time in his last eight
starts with the help of his bat and arm. He had taken five losses
in that span, including four in which he received two or fewer runs
in offensive support.

Rafael Soriano, the last of five Braves pitchers, allowed a
bloop single to Seth Smith to start the ninth inning but then
struck out the side for his 12th save in 13 opportunities.
