Tim Hudson held the Tampa Bay Rays to just five hits over 7.2 innings, as the Atlanta Braves picked up a key 2-0 win on Sunday, out-performing Rays starter David Price.
Price held the Braves to just two runs (one earned) in seven innings on just six hits and striking out seven Braves batters, but Hudson was better, allowing just four hits and walking just two.
The Braves' two runs came on a Cody Ross solo home run in the third, and a Jason Heyward RBI single in the sixth. Jonny Venters and Craig Kimbrel combined to get the final four outs of the game. No Rays hitter had more than one hit on the day.
The Rays return home to face the Toronto Blue Jays Monday night at Tropicana Field.
