Hudson, Braves shut out Padres, 6-0

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Tim Hudson combined with three relievers for a five-hit shutout, Martin Prado hit a three-run homer, and the Atlanta Braves beat the San Diego Padres 6-0 on Tuesday night.

Hudson (12-4) allowed two hits and one walk in 6 2-3 innings and won his sixth straight decision.

After being held to five hits in a 4-1 loss to Eric Stults and the Padres on Monday night, the Braves had 10 hits, including Dan Uggla's 14th homer in the fifth inning.

The Braves began the day five-and-a-half games behind first-place Washington in the NL East, their biggest deficit since trailing by 6 games on July 5.

Jonny Venters, Luis Avilan and Craig Kimbrel completed the shutout.
