Braves’ Jurrjens becomes NL’s 1st 10-game winner

SAN DIEGO — Jair Jurrjens pitched six strong innings to become the first 10-game winner in the NL and the Atlanta Braves had eight extra-base hits in a 10-1 victory over the San Diego Padres on Saturday night.

Dan Uggla hit a three-run homer for Atlanta, which has won five of six and 12 of 17 overall.

Jurrjens (10-3) combined with three relievers on a four-hitter and lowered his NL-leading ERA to 2.07. He joined CC Sabathia of the Yankees and Detroit’s Justin Verlander as 10-game winners.

Jurrjens has won his last three starts against San Diego, including his first career complete game, an 8-2 victory at Petco Park on April 26. On Saturday night, the right-hander held San Diego to one run and three hits.
