Hudson, Braves Top Nationals

ATLANTA (AP) - Tim Hudson gave the Braves' ailing rotation a lift and Atlanta got home runs from Brian McCann and Chipper Jones in a 5-2 victory over the Washington Nationals on Thursday night.

The Braves are 8 1-2 games ahead of St. Louis in the NL wild-card race but face growing concerns about the health of their rotation.

Right-hander Jair Jurrjens said Thursday an MRI on his sore right knee showed a bone bruise and he plans to see a specialist. Jurrjens could join right-hander Tommy Hanson (sore right shoulder) on the disabled list.

Hudson (14-8) allowed one run and five hits in six innings while passing Jurrjens for the team lead in wins. Jonny Venters gave up a run in the eighth before striking out two batters with the bases loaded.
