ATLANTA (AP) - Jair Jurrjens gave up one run and had a
run-scoring single in his first start in two months, and the
Atlanta Braves beat the Washington Nationals 4-1 on Wednesday

Jurrjens (1-3) gave up six hits and one run in five innings in
his first major league start since injuring his left hamstring on
April 29. He struck out six with two walks.

Four Atlanta relievers combined to give up two hits in four
scoreless innings. Billy Wagner gave up a leadoff single to Ivan
Rodriguez in the ninth before striking out Cristian Guzman, Alberto
Gonzalez and Ian Desmond to earn his 16th save.
