ATLANTA (AP) -- Tim Hudson became the latest pitcher to breeze
past the Washington Nationals.
Hudson pitched three-hit ball over seven innings and Jeff
Francouer drove in five runs, sending the Atlanta Braves to an 8-0
victory Tuesday night that extended the hapless Nationals' losing
streak to five.
Washington (1-7) has been outscored 53-18, falling behind by at
least 3-0 in every game. The Nationals haven't scored in the first
three innings of any game.
Arizona's Livan Hernandez took a no-hitter into the sixth
against Washington on Sunday, and Hudson (1-0) held the Nationals
without a hit for 4 2-3 innings before Ronnie Belliard blooped a
single. Hudson struck out seven and walked one, lowering his ERA to
Mike Gonzalez and Chad Paronto combined to finish the
Matt Chico (0-1) allowed four runs -- one earned -- and six hits
in 4 2-3 innings. He was hurt by errors by Dmitri Young at first
and Belliard at shortstop.
