Hudson shines as Braves steal another 1-0 win

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Tim Hudson pitched seven scoreless innings and the Atlanta Braves posted their second straight 1-0 victory over Colorado Rockies on Thursday, winning both times with an unearned run.

This was an especially galling loss for the Rockies. Juan Francisco raced home with the lone run when Rockies starter Jhoulys Chacin (2-5) dropped a routine throw back to the mound from his catcher. Chacin glanced over toward third before making the catch, the ball bouncing off the side of his glove and winding up between the mound and second base.

Francisco alertly spotted the miscue and took off for the plate, making it with a headfirst slide.

That was enough for Hudson (14-5), who stranded eight Colorado runners. Craig Kimbrel completed the shutout with a scoreless ninth for his 34th save.
