Braves Win; Chipper Jones Stays Hot

ATLANTA (AP) _ Jair Jurrjens (JAH'-ree JUR'-jehnz) pitched six
strong innings and the Atlanta Braves beat the San Diego Padres 5-3
Tuesday night to improve the NL's best home record to 12-and-4. Chipper
Jones hit his 10th homer. Mark Kotsay added two hits, including a
homer, and drove in two runs.
Kotsay also delivered the defensive play of the game in the
fifth inning, making an over-the-shoulder catch at the warning
track of Tadahito Iguchi's drive.
Jurrjens is 4-and-2. He matched his career high with eight
strikeouts and gave up seven hits with a walk and one run in six
San Diego's Chris Young threw 98 pitches in only five innings,
giving up nine hits and five runs. He's 2-and-3.
