Braves Win But Lose Tim Hudson
The Braves beat the Mets 8-2 Wednesday night in New York, but lost pitcher Tim Hudson for the rest of the season.
Evan Gattis hit a solo homer, Dan Uggla a three-run shot and Andrelton Simmons a two-run blast to give Hudson a 6-0 lead.
Hudson struck out a season-high nine batters, the most strikeouts for him since September of 2011.
The 38-year old righthander was working on a four-hit shutout in the 8th inning when Eric Young hit a slow grounder between first-and-second base. Hudson came off the mound to cover the bag, taking the throw from Freddie Freeman. On a bang-bang play, Young's foot came down on Hudson's right ankle.
The Braves ace lay in pain on the ground for several minutes... paramedics brought out a stretcher and carted him off the field.
Hudson's right ankle is broken. He'll have surgery in Atlanta as soon as the swelling goes down. Barring a much-quicker-than-normal recovery, Hudson's season is over.
He did get the win in the game, which gave him an 8-7 record for this season, keeping alive his string of never having a losing record in any season in his 15-year career.
