Braves 4, Red Sox 1

BOSTON — Demoted in April, Jair Jurrjens made an impressive return to the majors by allowing one run on three hits and shut down the Red Sox. Jurrjens, an All-Star last year, left in the eighth after allowing an RBI double by Daniel Nava that drove in Will Middlebrooks, who led off with a double. Boston's only other hit was a single by Adrian Gonzalez in the first. Jurrjens had retired eight in a row before Middlebrooks' double.
