Braves Nip Cardinals
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Jair Jurrjens worked eight scoreless innings, overcoming another light offensive showing behind him in the Atlanta Braves' 1-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday night.

Albert Pujols had a forgettable game for St. Louis, committing two fielding errors at first base while going 0 for 4 with two strikeouts and no balls out of the infield against the 23-year-old right-hander. The NL Central leaders lost for the first time in 17 games on a day when the second-place Cubs also won, shaving their formidable lead to 10 games.

Jurrjens (11-10) allowed six hits while striking out seven with one walk, matching his career best for innings and helping end Joel Pineiro's eight-game winning streak dating to July 3.
