Hudson homers in 200th win as Braves beat Nats 8-1

May 1st, 2013 - By Steve James

 

ATLANTA (AP) – Tim Hudson was a dual threat in his

200th career win, combining with Anthony Varvaro on a three-hitter

while hitting a homer and a double to lead the Atlanta Braves to an

8-1 win over the Washington Nationals on Tuesday night.

Hudson (3-1) dominated the Nationals through seven

innings, striking out six and walking two while giving up one run.

One of the three hits he allowed was an infield single by Denard

Span.

Hudson’s bat almost stole the night. He led off the

second with a double to left field off Gio Gonzalez (2-2) and hit a

fifth-inning homer off Zach Duke. Bryce Harper made a leaping

attempt to catch the homer, but the ball bounced off his glove and

over the wall.

The Braves won their ninth straight against

Washington, dating to last season.
