Sunday afternoon offers a classic matchup of wily veteran vs young flamethrower on the mound, as Tampa Bay's David Price will take on Tim Hudson of the Braves at Tropicana Field in the final game of the teams' first interleague series of the year.

Price (6-2, 3.10 ERA) is tied with six others for the major league lead in wins. He has been dominant at home, winning all three starts at Tropicana with a minuscule 1.16 ERA.

Hudson (2-1, 3.96) has been impressive since returning from surgery yo repair a herniated disc. The Braves right-hander has allowed two runs or fewer in three of his four starts this season. In his career, Hudson is 7-1 with a 2.71 ERA in 11 starts against Tampa Bay.
