ATLANTA (AP) - Jair Jurrjens threw a one-hitter for his first career shutout, Jason Heyward ended a long home-run drought and the streaking Atlanta Braves beat the Baltimore Orioles 4-0 on Friday night.

Jurrjens (11-3) became the first NL pitcher with 11 wins and lowered the NL’s best ERA to 1.89.

Adam Jones ended Jurrjens‘ no-hit bid with his single up the middle with one out in the seventh. Jones stole second but was stranded there as Jurrjens struck out Matt Wieters and Derek Lee.

Jurrjens recorded 15 straight outs before Mark Reynolds walked to lead off the sixth.

Jeremy Guthrie (3-10) threw five scoreless innings, allowing only a walk and a hit, before giving up Heyward’s first homer since April 29, a two-run shot in the sixth.
