Jurrjens, Braves blank Mets, 11-0

By  | 

ATLANTA (AP) - Brian McCann drove in four runs in the first
three innings, Jair Jurrjens combined with three relievers on a
two-hitter and the Atlanta Braves beat the New York Mets 11-0 on
Friday night.

The slumping Mets lost Gary Sheffield to a right leg injury in
the fifth inning and were shut out for the sixth time in 22 games
since All-Star outfielder Carlos Beltran went on the disabled list,
going 8-14. The Mets have scored just 68 runs in that span.

Sheffield pulled up and grabbed the back of his right thigh
after catching up to a double hit by Yunel Escobar in the fifth
inning. Sheffield dropped the ball and leaned over while center
fielder Angel Pagan threw the ball back to the infield.
