Blast by Jones Lifts Braves Past Cubs
ATLANTA (AP) -- Chipper Jones hit a go-ahead, two-run homer in the eighth inning and the Atlanta Braves held off the Chicago Cubs 3-2 Wednesday night.

Martin Prado hit a one-out double off John Grabow (0-1), ending a string of 15 consecutive outs by Braves batters, before Jones connected for his first homer of the season.

Peter Moylan (1-0) worked around a hit and a walk during a scoreless eighth and Billy Wagner finished for his first save with Atlanta. Alfonso Soriano singled with one out in the ninth but Wagner responded by striking out pinch-hitter Xavier Nady and Geovany Soto to end the game.
