NEW YORK (AP) - Jair Jurrjens dominated a feeble New York Mets
lineup again and Yunel Escobar hit a two-run single, sending the
Atlanta Braves to a 3-1 victory Tuesday night.
The surging Braves kept up their late playoff charge, though
their chances for a postseason spot are slim. Atlanta began the day
five games behind Colorado for the NL wild card and eight back of
first-place Philadelphia in the NL East.
Atlanta, which has won six straight road games and 10 of 12
overall, lost All-Star catcher Brian McCann to a bruised left wrist
in the fourth. He was replaced by David Ross.
Escobar singled with two outs in the fourth off hard-luck loser
Nelson Figueroa (2-7), who allowed only two hits while throwing 126
pitches in seven innings.
