Jurrjens continues to impress

Jurrjens continues to impress

at Lake Buena Vista, Fla.
Monday, March 10

Cardinals at the plate: Juan Gonzalez, who is attempting to return to the Majors for the first time since 2005, had two singles to give him a .333 (8-for-24) Grapefruit League batting average. Brian Barton, who has 10 hits in his last 19 at-bats, had a single and an eighth-inning RBI groundout.

Braves at the plate: Jordan Schafer's first-inning leadoff double put him in position to score the game's first run on a Mark Kotsay RBI single. Javy Lopez hit his second homer of the year with one out in the seventh inning off Chris Perez.

Cardinals on the mound: Starter Adam Wainwright surrendered three hits in Atlanta's two-run first inning and then allowed just two more hits over his final four scoreless innings. Cliff Politte issued one walk in a scoreless frame.

Braves on the mound: Starter Jair Jurrjens moved another step toward clinching a spot in the rotation by limiting the Cardinals to one hit in four scoreless innings. Ryan Drese surrendered three hits over two scoreless innings.

Grapefruit League records: Cardinals 5-8, Braves 8-5.

Up next: Tom Glavine will make his third start on Tuesday night at 7:05 ET, when the Braves welcome the Nationals to Disney's Champion Stadium for their first night game of the season. Peter Moylan, who said he's no longer feeling the elbow discomfort that greeted him last week, is expected to pitch on inning.
