The Atlanta Braves pulled two full games ahead of the Florida Marlins last night as Tim Hudson pitched six effective innings for the win.
A Dan Uggla homer in the ninth put some scare into the game, but Rafael Soriano closed the game out with a double play ball.
The Braves are just three games back from Colorado for the wildcard spot.
Coming of elbow surgery, Hudson pitched a month in the minors as a warm up. He returns to what may be one of the best pitching staffs in baseball for the final run of the season.
