Atlanta's Hudson Wins Again in Gwinnett

Also, G-Braves get Jair Jurrjens from the parent club.

Atlanta Braves pitcher Tim Hudson had another strong outing Tuesday in his second rehab start for Gwinnett. The right-hander allowed one run on six hits in 5.2 innings as the G-Braves topped Charlotte, 5-4.

“It was good to get going and cruise for a little while,” Hudson said in a G-Braves news release.  “It was nice to get into some jams and work out of them, even though they scored a run (in the sixth).  It gives you a gauge of where you are when your back is to the wall a bit, that’s what it’s all about. 

The G-Braves took a 2-1 lead in the fifth on a run-scoring single by Josh Wilson in the second and a fielder's choice by J.C. Boscan in the fifth, which was enough to give Hudson the win. Gwinnett added three more runs in the seventh.

Previously Wednesday, the G-Braves added pitcher Jair Jurrjens, who was optioned from Atlanta, and lost pitcher Cory Gearrin, who was called up to replace Jurrjens.

NEXT HOME GAME: Wednesday (4/25) vs. Charlotte, 7:05 p.m.
