Gio Gonzalez will try to break the Nationals 8-game losing streak against the Braves
The Atlanta Braves and Washington Nationals clash tonight in a 7:10 ET game at Turner Field in Atlanta. The Braves will try to give the Nationals yet another “Nattitude Adjustment” as they gun for five in a row on the season against Washington and nine in a row overall.
The Nationals PR folks came out with the “Nattitude” slogan prior to the season, a move they may now be regretting.
Braves starter Tim Hudson will be gunning for his 200th career victory tonight. He has 10 career victories against the Nationals while accumulating a 3.40 ERA.
Nationals starter Gio Gonzalez has a 2-2 career record against the Braves with a 4.57 ERA.
Ironically, both Hudson and Gonzalez have 2-1 records with 4.50 ERAs this season.
The starting line-ups tonight for both teams:
1. A. Simmons 2. C. Johnson 3. J. Upton 4. F. Freeman 5. E. Gattis 6. D. Uggla 7. B. Upton 8. R. Johnson 9. T. Hudson
1. D. ...

ATLANTA Here are three things we learned from the Braves' 8-1 triumph over the Nationals on Tuesday, aka the night of Tim Hudson's 200th career victory:
1. The third time was the charm in Hudson's bid for 200
In the press box during the latter innings, we had a tough time confirming whether Hudson became the 111th or 113th pitcher to enter the 200 Club (Baseball Reference...
Tim Hudson defeated the Washington Nationals on Tuesday night to earn his 200th career victory. It was a complete performance by Hudson who used his arm and his bat to defeat the division rival.
On the mound Hudson was his usual self going seven innings allowing one run. The veteran starter recorded six strikeouts and relied on the ground ball. In Hudson’s seventh and final inning...
Tuesday in Atlanta, Tim Hudson won the 200th game of his marvelous Major League Baseball career.
I hope you were paying attention.
Hudson became only the 110th pitcher in MLB history to accomplish the feat, according to STATS LLC. For context, 236 pitchers have thrown no-hitters. So, Hudson's new distinction is more than twice as rare as having thrown a no-hitter.
Is 200 the new 300?
For decades now, 300 wins for a pitcher has been the standard of automatic entry to baseball’s Hall of Fame. However, when Randy Johnson achieved the feat in 2009, many asked the very legitimate question of whether or not the Big Unit would be the very last pitcher to ever hit that mark. Conventional wisdom says Johnson will indeed be the last.

Atlanta Braves pitcher Tim Hudson has only three home runs in his career, and his most recent big fly may not have made its way into the stands without a little help from Washington Nationals star Bryce Harper.
During the bottom of the fifth inning on Tuesday night, the 37-year-old Hudson proved that he still has the strength to send a ball...
The opener of the four-game series between the N.L East-leading Atlanta Braves and the second place Washington Nationals, left baseball fans in the nation’s capital with more than just frustration due to the 3-2 loss at the hands of the Braves on Monday night. Unfortunately, fans in Washington were also given what some are saying is good reason to worry regarding starter Stephen...
Tuesday night, Tim Hudson became just the third active pitcher (Andy Pettitte and Roy Halladay) to reach 200 victories. And dude did it in style.
The righty scattered three hits over seven stellar innings and blasted his third career home run (you can credit Bryce Harper with the assist) while powering the Atlanta Braves to an 8-1 victory over the Washington Nationals.
Bryce Harper should be credited with an assist on Tim Hudson‘s home run Tuesday night.
In the fifth inning of the Nationals-Braves game, Harper nearly made a highlight-reel catch on a fly ball off the bat of Atlanta’s starting pitcher. But instead of hauling it in, the ball bounced off the young outfielder’s glove and over the right-field fence.
It’s embarrassing enough...
And so, another bad night for the Nats Tuesday night in Atlanta (still waiting for Danny Espinosa's latest assessment of the Braves), but at least there was Gio Gonzalez's fantastic diving catch of a bunt by Andrelton Simmons in the second inning.
Gio on his muddled start (4 IP, 7 H, 5 R, 5 BB, 9 K, 1 HR, 1 WP, 95 pitches!?, 56 strikes):
"Today's one of those...
Tim Hudson won his 200th game on Tuesday night against the Washington Nationals, becoming just the 110th pitcher in MLB history to reach the milestone. On the same evening, Roy Halladay allowed 8 earned runs (3 HR) to the Cleveland Indians in 3.67 IP at Progressive Field.
Is Tim Hudson the most underrated pitcher in the 21st century? Has the Atlanta Braves ace pitched to the level...

Bryce’s HR giveaway didn’t matter; Nats drilled 8-1 by Braves. [NI]
Don’t worry, Boz says everything is fine, including Strasburg’s arm. [WP]
On a very bad night in Atlanta, at least Gio made this diving catch. [NE]
Nats Park embroiled in a serious battle over the Wave. [For, Against]
Orioles rebound from...
We had our second pitcher of the season pick up win #200: Tim Hudson of the Braves. Hudson's Braves dominated the Nationals in an 8-1 win, and the 37-year old turned in one of his best performances of the year to reach the milestone. He even added a homer on the offensive side of teh game. We're going to have one more pitcher hit 200 wins this year, as CC Sabathia is currently...
