WINTER HAVEN, Fla. (AP) -- Jair Jurrjens and six other Atlanta pitchers combined on a one-hitter today in a 4-1 spring exhibition victory over the Cleveland Indians.

Jurrjens, who is trying to make his case for a spot in the rotation, held the Indians hitless and struck out two in in the first three innings.

Mark Teixeira had an RBI single and Joe Borchard hit a two-run double in the third off of Cleveland's Joe Borowski. Teixeira had a solo homer in the sixth.

The Indians didn't score until getting a hit off of Colter Bean with two outs in the ninth.

Jurrjens was acquired from Detroit in the trade that sent Edgar Renteria to the Tigers.

Atlanta manager Bobby Cox says third baseman Chipper Jones might be ready to play tomorrow when the Braves travel to Lakeland, Florida, to meet the Tigers.

Jones has been out after tweaking a hamstring during a weekend batting practice.
