MIAMI (AP) -- Jair Jurrjens threw seven solid innings and drove
in a run as the Atlanta Braves handed the Florida Marlins their
eighth straight loss with a 3-2 win Thursday night.

Alex Gonzalez also drove in a run with a double as the Braves
completed a three-game sweep at Sun Life Stadium for the first time
since May 2-4, 1995.

The eight-game losing streak for the Marlins is their longest
skid since they also dropped eight in a row August 15-22, 2007.

Jurrjens (8-2), the league leader in ERA at 1.82, allowed two
runs and six hits. He threw 61 of his 87 pitches for strikes and
struck out two.

Chris Volstad (2-6) had his no-hit bid ended in the sixth on
Matt Young's leadoff single.
