Braves lose another one by one run

Associated Press
DENVER ó Right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez overcame a shaky start and Matt Holliday hit two run-scoring singles in the Colorado Rockiesí 4-3 win over the hard-luck Atlanta Braves on Tuesday night.
Each of the Bravesí five losses so far have come by one run. The Rockies have won three games so far, each by a run as well.
The Rockies still havenít busted out of their offensive funk, but they finally topped the three-run mark in a game. Coming in, they had scored just 12 times in their first seven games, the lowest run production in the majors and half the number of runs that they had scored in their previous worst start, in 2002.
Jimenez (1-1) allowed six hits and three runs in a six-inning outing that was both brilliant and baffling.
He walked four batters, including pitcher Jair Jurrjens twice, and three times issued four-pitch walks. He allowed only one run until Mark Kotsayís two-run homer cut Coloradoís lead to 4-3.
Jurrjens (1-1) gave up four earned runs and nine hits over seven innings.
Jimenez struggled through a 22-pitch first inning, allowing Chipper Jonesí RBI single and two four-pitch walks before settling down right after a mound visit from manager Clint Hurdle.
After Hurdleís trip, Jimenez retired 11 of the next 13 batters he faced with the only blemishes coming with walks to Jurrjens.
