Once again, the Braves cruised to victory behind young starter Jair Jurrjens.

Since his return from the DL, Jurrjens had been the Braves most reliable starter. Jurrjens has had four quality starts in each of his four games this season, with a rotation best 1.52 ERA and 1.01 WHIP. 

Beside a triple off the glove of McLouth in the fourth inning, Jurrjens was again in excellent form. The two-run triple was the only real damage done by the Brewers through 7 2/3 innings.

Offensive support came with a solo-shot home run from David Ross in the third and a four-run sixth inning. The Atlanta offense has consistently provided decent run-support in each of Jurrjens' wins.
