ATLANTA (AP) – Martin Prado homered and drove in three runs, Jair Jurrjens took a perfect game into the sixth and the Atlanta Braves beat the Philadelphia Phillies 5-3 on Saturday.

Jurrjens (5-0) beat the Phillies for the second time in a week, following a 5-2 win in Philadelphia on Sunday. He gave up three hits and three runs, two earned, in 7 1-3 innings.

Jurrjens, who opened the season on the disabled list with a right oblique strain, has not allowed more than two earned runs in six starts.

Prado and Nate McLouth hit back-to-back homers in the first inning for the only runs allowed by Joe Blanton (1-2) in five innings.

Craig Kimbrel pitched the ninth for his ninth save.
