Heyward helps Jurrjens as Braves beat Brewers, 2-1

ATLANTA (AP) - Jair Jurrjens gave up only one run, rookie Jason Heyward made two strong defensive plays in his return from an injury and the Atlanta Braves beat the Milwaukee Brewers 2-1 on Thursday night.

Martin Prado and Chipper Jones hit home runs in the third inning off Dave Bush (4-7). Corey Hart's 22nd homer gave Milwaukee a 1-0 lead in the first inning.

It was the only run allowed by Jurrjens, who gave up five hits and two walks with three strikeouts in 6 2-3 innings.

Jurrjens (2-3) earned his second win in three starts since returning from a hamstring injury. Billy Wagner pitched a perfect ninth for his 21st save.
