Jurrjens earns ninth win as Braves top Rangers 4-2

ATLANTA — Jason Heyward hit a two-run single in the third inning and Freddie Freeman added an RBI double in the seventh to help Jair Jurrjens earn his ninth victory in the Atlanta Braves’ 4-2 win over the Texas Rangers on Sunday.

The Braves snapped a two-game losing streak, while Texas dropped its ninth in 13 games.

Jurrjens (9-3) allowed one run, seven hits, two walks and struck out four in 5 1-3 innings. The right-hander lowered his NL-best ERA to 2.11.

Craig Kimbrel earned his 19th save in 24 chances for Atlanta, striking out Josh Hamilton on three pitches to end it with a runner on first.

Alexi Ogando (7-2) lost his second straight start after giving up five hits and three runs — one earned — with one walk and three strikeouts.
