Braves Fall To Dodgers 7-2 As Jair Jurrjens Continues To Struggle

Jair Jurrjens continued to struggle on the mound, the Braves were unable to come up with timely hits and Chris Capuano continued his recent trend of shutting Atlanta down as the Dodgers went on to win 7-2 on Monday night. Jurrjens, who has been pretty awful since the 2011 All-Star Game, only worked three innings and allowed five runs on nine hits and a walk.

Livan Hernandez had to come in and save Jurrjens in the fourth inning. The veteran reliever worked 2.1 innings before eventually being lifted for Chad Durbin in the ninth.

Juan Uribe was the star for LA, going 4-for-4 at the plate. He drove in three runs and scored two more of his own. Six of the eight batters in the Dodgers lineup had two hits or more.

David Ross hit a solo-homer in the second to tie the score at 1-1. Dan Uggla hit a late home run in the 8th inning to cut the deficit to 5-2, but that was all the offense the Braves would muster against Capuano and the Dodgers' bullpen.

After winning 10 of their last 11 games, Atlanta has now lost two in a row. They two clubs will meet once again on Tuesday night.
