St. Louis' string of not allowing a homer at home was the majors' longest to start the season since the Chicago White Sox also did it the first nine games of 1972, according to Elias.
Jurrjens is 0-3 and has given up 17 earned runs in 19 innings in four day starts. He got two quick outs in the first, then hit Matt Holliday and gave up a single to Rasmus before Freese connected on a 1-1 pitch.
Freese had a six-RBI game last season for Triple-A Memphis.
NOTES: Heyward's homer was the Braves' first in nine games. ... Molina has 15 RBIs this month, matching his career best in 2007. ... Cardinals pitchers have allowed an NL-low 10 homers, and Heyward's homer was only the second off St. Louis in 151 innings. ... Braves SS Yunel Escobar strained a left groin muscle and was pulled for a pinch-hitter after making an off-balance throw to nip Joe Mather in the seventh.
