Braves’ pitcher hits homer in 200th win

As a .179 career hitter, Tim Hudson doesn’t expect much when he steps to the plate.

After pulling off the unlikely feat of hitting a homer in his 200th career win, Hudson concluded “The stars were aligned and it was meant to be.”

Hudson was a dual threat in his milestone win, dominating on the mound over seven innings and hitting a homer and a double to lead the Atlanta Braves to an 8-1 win over the Washington Nationals on Tuesday night.

Hudson (3-1) stuck out six and walked two while giving up one run. One of the three hits he allowed was an infield single by Denard Span.

“It was a fun game,” Hudson said. “Obviously, it’s kind of surreal. No one expects to hit a home run.”
