I know that Mac Thomason of Braves Journal likes to say (joke?) that these games are meaningless, but it's nice to see a good pitching performance all around. The Braves let in one run on one hit, a Danny Sandoval single with two outs in the ninth, making the final score 4-1.
Jair Jurrjens, Jeff Bennett, Jeff Ridgway, Royce Ring, Francisley Bueno, and Jairo Cuevas all allowed no hits. Jurrjens pitched three innings to start the game.
Mark Teixiera homered for the Braves and drove in another run with a single.
W - Jair Jurrjens (1-0)
L - Joe Borowski (0-1)
HR - Mark Teixeira (1)
P Jair Jurrjens - 3 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 2 SO
1B Mark Teixeira - 2-3, HR, 2 R, 2 RBI
RF Joe Borchard - 1-2, 2B, BB, 2 RBI
