Martin Prado and Jason Heyward each had three hits while righty Jair Jurrjens stifled the Red Sox on three hits over 7 2/3 innings to lead the Braves to a 4-1 win on Friday night at Fenway Park. The loss snapped Boston's five-game winning streak. After being found not guilty on all federal perjury charges earlier in the week, seven-time Cy Young winner Roger Clemens - the team's all-time co-leader in wins - took in the game from the front row of Monster seats.
Both Jurrjens and Red Sox starter Jon Lester did not appear affected by a rain delay of one hour, 14 minutes before the first pitch. It was scoreless contest through three innings. After Adrian Gonzalez lined a single past the shift and into left field in the first inning, Jurrjens did not allow another hit until Will Middlebrooks rifled a double off the center field wall to open the eighth.

Rich Hill told WEEI.com prior to the Red Sox' game Friday night against the Braves that he is scheduled to throw Tuesday, which would be the first time since going on the 15-day disabled list with a strained flexor tendon in his left elbow.
Thursday night, Hill talked to Dr. Lewis Yocum, who analyzed the MRI results taken by Dr. James Andrews. The conclusion of Yocum was in line with what Andrews had originally diagnosed, which mandated the lefty reliever to not participate in any throwing for two weeks. Of note was Yocum's discovery that none of the dye which was shot into Hill's elbow during the arthrogram MRI had leaked out, suggesting no tears in the elbow's surgically-repaired ligament.
Hill pitched in 17 games after coming back from Tommy John surgery, giving up four runs over 13 2/3 innings. He last pitched June 8 against Washington.
