Tim Hudson was very good. I could stop there and that would be all you need to know about this game.
Hudson induced 14 ground balls, five fly balls and three line drives, pitching to a .217 BABIP against. He spotted everything so well, it seemed he was just out there to entertain himself. Definitely one of those nights where he had his command and stuff working.
Aside from the two big offensive plays listed above, Jason Heyward hit his 24th home run and Freddie Freeman hit his 18th in back-to-back fashion. Paul Janish added a triple and continued his solid defense. Brian McCann put together three singles in three different ways, but they all count.
