PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Jair Jurrjens pitched eight scoreless innings and Brian McCann hit two homers, including a grand slam, to lead the Atlanta Braves over the struggling Philadelphia Phillies 8-2 on Friday night.
Jurrjens (10-5) allowed three hits, struck out six and walked one. The 22-year-old right-hander leads all rookies in wins, and he lowered his ERA to 3.02.
McCann led off the fourth against Kyle Kendrick (8-5) with a drive to center for a 1-0 lead. He connected for his 20th homer off Brad Lidge during a seven-run ninth. Lidge, the All-Star closer who hasn't blown a save this season, had not allowed a home run this year in 42 innings.
Kendrick gave up one run and seven hits in six innings.
Ryan Howard hit his major league-leading 30th homer with two outs in the ninth for the Phillies, who have lost five of seven since the All-Star break.
