Jurrjens wins in season debut

It was a good night for Jair Jurrjens and the Braves on Wednesday, who picked up their first win of the season.

In some ways, Jurrjens picked up where he left off last year, going after hitters and showing a poise beyond his age. From the articles:

“He’s 22-years-old, and when he’s on the mound, you’d think he was a
10-year veteran,” Braves catcher Brian McCann said. “He was phenomenal
tonight.”

Apparently, there was even a cheering section for Jurrjens at Turner Field. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, there was a group of fans in surgical scrubs who dubbed themselves Jurrjens’ Surgeons.
