Major Leagues: National League Roundup

Associated Press
ATLANTA ó Jair Jurrjens outpitched Johnny Cueto, Martin Prado hit a two-run homer and the Atlanta Braves beat Cincinnati 2-1 on Sunday night, putting an end to the Reds’ damaging road trip.
Prado also helped on defense by throwing out Paul Janish at the plate in the eighth inning to protect the lead. Janish tried to score from second base on Brandon Phillips’ single to left field.
Prado’s throw got to the plate first, but Janish appeared to slide home safely as catcher David Ross applied a high tag. Janish and manager Dusty Baker argued the call with home plate umpire Dan Iassogna.
The Reds lost two of three to the Braves to complete a 2-8 road trip.
