MIAMI (AP) -- Jair Jurrjens gave up three hits in seven innings Thursday, and the Atlanta Braves completed a two-game sweep of the slumping Florida Marlins, 4-2.
Casey Kotchman homered and hit an RBI double for Atlanta. David Ross had a two-run homer.
Jurrjens (3-2) allowed two runs, both on homers by Hanley Ramirez. The right-hander's ERA rose to 2.01.
Marlins starter Anibal Sanchez (1-4) allowed two homers and four runs in 4 2-3 innings before leaving the game because of discomfort in his pitching shoulder. Sanchez underwent surgery on the shoulder in June 2007 and returned last July.
Florida extended a club-record streak of 20 consecutive games without a win by a starting pitcher. During that span the starters are 0-10.
