The Braves can grab a much needed series win and close to within 2.5 games of the division lead with a victory over the Washington Nationals on Sunday. The Nationals took Friday's series opener 5-4 but Atlanta answered back with a 7-5 win on Saturday over Stephen Strasburg.
Tim Hudson will take the hill for the Braves seeking his seventh win of the season. Hudson was golden last time out surrendering just one run in eight innings against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Washington will counter with lefty Gio Gonzalez who is 10-3 with a 2.78 ERA on the season.
Brutal temperatures are expected for the game in Atlanta with temperatures approaching 104 degrees.
