Orioles Vs. Braves Score Update: Jair Jurrjens Has No-No Broken In Seventh, Heyward Homers

Jair Jurrjens made it into the seventh inning before finally allowing his first hit of the game, which came courtesy of an Adam Jones weak ground ball that made it through Alex Gonzalez and Dan Uggla. He has issued just one walk as well and is currently pitching in the seventh. He's thrown just 79 pitches against a tough Orioles lineup.

Jeremy Guthrie started for Baltimore and has been nearly as good as his counterpart. His lone mistake was a high fastball to Jason Heyward, which J-Hey belted 400 feet for a 2-run homer. The home run was Heyward's first since May 29.

Jurrjens just struck out Derrek Lee for the final out of the seventh inning, his seventh strikeout of the evening. Freddie Freeman, Dan Uggla and Alex Gonzalez are due up for Atlanta in the bottom half of the inning. Jonny Venters is getting another night off, so we could use an insurance run (or six).
