Hart's Homer is Only Brewers Run in Loss to Braves

ATLANTA (AP) -- Jair Jurrjens gave up only one run, rookie Jason Heyward made two strong defensive plays in his return from an injury and the Atlanta Braves beat the Milwaukee Brewers 2-1 on Thursday night.

Martin Prado and Chipper Jones hit home runs in the third inning off Dave Bush (4-7).

Corey Hart's 22nd homer gave Milwaukee a 1-0 lead in the first inning. It was the only run allowed by Jurrjens, who gave up five hits and two walks with three strikeouts in 6 2-3 innings.

Jurrjens (2-3) earned his second win in three starts since returning from a hamstring injury.

Billy Wagner pitched a perfect ninth for his 21st save.
