Braves Beat Nationals Behind Jair Jurrjens

One paragraph recap:

The Atlanta Braves finished off the Washington Nationals on Wednesday night behind a strong effort from starting pitcher Jair Jurrjens, who was just activated after two months on the disabled list. Billy Wagner closed out the game by striking out the side in the ninth, his first appearance in five days after receiving a cortisone shot in his injured ankle. The Braves spread out their hits and made the most of those base knocks. Martin Prado started if off in the first inning with a double, then came around to score on a Brian McCann double. This was a true team effort, led by the resurgent Jurrjens, who actually picked up just his first win of the season.
