The Braves bounced back, and so did Tim Hudson, who had a catastrophic five-run inning in his last start against the Phillies (only for the Braves to rally for a comfortable win). The Padres only once had the go-ahead run on board (on a two-out walk in the first) and after the Braves took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first only once had the tying run on (in the fifth, and he didn’t get past first).
Michael Bourn led off the bottom of the first with a triple. Martin Prado fouled out, but Freddie Freeman scored Bourn on a groundout. Neither team would have another baserunner until Chipper Jones’ two-out double in the fourth; he was stranded.
In the fifth, Dan Uggla hit a solo homer. Prado, Freeman, and Chipper hit consecutive singles in the sixth to make it 3-0. After a one-out single, just the second hit off of him, Hudson left the game in the seventh. Jonny Venters allowed a walk but struck out the other two men he faced.
Singles by Paul Janish and Bourn in the bottom of the inning set up Prado, who hit a homer to put the game more or less away, 6-0. Luis Avilan gave up one hit in the eighth. Grossly overqualified to hold a six-run lead for one inning, Craig Kimbrel allowed a leadoff single before striking out the side.
