G70: Atlanta 4, Red Sox 1

Atlanta - 000 201 001 - 4 13  0
Red Sox - 000 000 010 - 1  3  0
Jurrjens (7.2-3-1-1-4, 103) allowed only one hit through seven innings - Adrian Gonzalez's single in the first inning. The bottom of Atlanta's order put three runs on the board in the middle innings and that was more than enough. Jurrjens began the game with a 9.37 ERA.

Freddie Freeman singled to start the fourth off Lester (7-10-3-1-5, 118) and went to third on Jason Heyward's double off the Wall. Matt Diaz's grounder to shortstop scored Freeman and Heyward came home on Andrelton Simmons's double into the left field corner.

In the sixth, Heyward doubled again, went to third on Diaz's line out to right, and scored on Simmons's fly out to right. Freeman's two-out single off Mark Melancon scored Michael Bourn in the ninth.

Boston's baserunners:
1st - Gonzalez's two-out single
3rd - Daniel Nava two-out walk
5th - Will Middlebrooks HBP with one out
8th - Middlebrooks leadoff double to CF, Nava RBI double off Wall with two outs
