The Braves acquired Jair Jurrjens in the offseason (with OF Gorkys Hernandez) from the Tigers for Edgar Renteria. After making seven starts for the Tigers in '07, Jurrjens made his first start for the Braves in '08 against the Pirates. They got to him in the sixth inning by scoring two runs, but he picked up the win. This will be his first start against the Rockies.
Ubaldo Jimenez, however, made one start against the Braves last season, but it was forgettable. He allowed six runs and walked five, but also struck out seven. This time he'll face the Braves. Let's get going here.
