Jurrjens surrenders grand slam in 4-0 loss

POSTED: June 15, 2012 12:08 a.m.

Jair Jurrjens surrendered four earned runs on a grand slam from Russ Canzler in the sixth inning and the Gwinnett Braves lost the first of a four-game series to the Columbus Clippers on Thursday at Coolray Field.

Jurrjens allowed seven hits over 6 2/3 innings, walked two and struck out three. He nearly got out of the jam in the sixth, but a close 1-2 pitch was called a ball and Canzler capitalized on the next pitch.

Left-hander Jose Lugo pitched 2 1/3 innings of scoreless baseball in relief of Jurrjens, but the G-Braves were unable to muster any offense in the game.

Tyler Pastornicky extended his hitting streak to seven games as he went 1 for 4. Ernesto Mejia also recorded a hit in the game, extending his hitting streak to six games with a 1-for-4 night.

The G-Braves (35-32) and Clippers (31-35) will play a doubleheader at Coolray Field on tonight, with first pitch of game one scheduled for 5:05 p.m.  The doubleheader will consist of two seven-inning contests separated by a half-hour break, with Gwinnett to act as the home team in game one and the road team in game two.
