Braves roll as Jurrjens has easy time with Mets

BY foxsports • July 18, 2009

Jair Jurrjens celebrated Greg Maddux's big day with a Maddux-like pitching effort.

Jurrjens combined with three relievers on a two-hitter, Brian McCann drove in four runs in the first three innings and the Atlanta Braves beat the New York Mets 11-0 on Friday night.

Jurrjens (8-7) gave up both hits and two walks in six innings after the Braves retired the No. 31 worn by Maddux. Boone Logan, Luis Valdez and Kris Medlen each pitched an inning after Jurrjens left.
