Jurrjens win 12th as Braves beat Rockies

ATLANTA — Chipper Jones hit a two-run homer, Jair Jurrjens earned his NL-leading 12th win and the surging Atlanta Braves beat slumping Colorado 9-1 on Wednesday night.

Dan Uggla added a two-run homer in the eighth and Jordan Schafer had four hits for the Braves, who have won eight of their past nine, including three straight over Colorado.

Jurrjens (12-3) allowed one run and five hits and two walks in six innings. He has allowed no more than one run in four straight starts, leaving his NL-leading ERA at 1.87.

The Braves scored three runs in the first off Aaron Cook (0-4) before Jones’ homer in the third pushed the lead to 5-0.

The Rockies (41-46) have lost four straight and are five games under .500 for the first time this season.
