Braves Vs. Angels Score: Angels Jump On Tim Hudson For Eight Runs, Lead Atlanta Through Six, 9-0

Tim Hudson failed to go four full innings in one of the worst starts of his career, allowing eight runs on seven hits. The Angels lead the Braves through six innings, 9-0.

Hudson went 3.2 innings, allowing eight runs on seven hits while walking three and striking out two. His command wasn't there beginning in the third when he gave up six runs, three on a homer by Mark Trumbo. The others came on an RBI double by Bobby Abreu that was preceded by a double from Peter Bourjos, a Torii Hunter RBI single, and a Hank Conger RBI groundout.

Alberto Callaspo singled home two in the fourth and chased Hudson from the game. It's the second-most runs allowed by Hudson in a start in his career.

The Braves have just two hits through six innings - singles by Eric Hinske and Joe Mather. Angels starter Ervin Santana retired 12 in a row before Mather's single in the sixth. On the other hand, Atlanta has only left two on base, so you can look at it that way.
