Jurrjens allowed five hits over five innings, with two walks and two strikeouts.
Dempster gained momentum after the third, striking out Heyward and Nate McLouth to open the fourth and Melky Cabrera and Martin Prado to open the fifth. He finished with nine strikeouts in six innings yielding just three hits.
NOTES: Glaus had four strikeouts, giving him six in his first two games with the Braves. ... Kosuke Fukudome singled and stole second in the eighth, the Cubs' first stolen base of the season. ... CF Jordan Schafer, who opened the 2009 season as the Braves' starter, had his left hand and wrist examined, and was scheduled to report to the team's minor league camp on Thursday. After being sent down to Triple-A Gwinnett last season, Schafer had season-ending surgery on the wrist on Sept. 5 and has been discouraged that the injury has been slow to heal. ... Former Atlanta RHP John Smoltz, who has not retired but has agreed to work on some local telecasts of Braves games, visited the Braves' dugout during batting practice. Smoltz also will serve as an analyst for the TBS and MLB.com networks.
