ATLANTA (AP) Tim Hudson gave up only four hits and no earned runs in 7 1-3 innings to remain unbeaten in his career against Houston, and the Braves stayed hot with a 4-1 win Friday night that left the Astros with their worst 32-game stretch in franchise history.
The Astros are 3-29 in their last 32 games. Houston's worst 32-game stretch before the 2012 season was 5-27, most recently from June 26 to July 29, 1962 as the Colt .45s, according to STATS LLC.
The Braves improved to 7-1 on their 10-game homestand.
Hudson (11-4) improved to 5-0 in seven career starts against the Astros. He allowed one unearned run, four hits and two walks and has won five straight decisions.
Chipper Jones had a two-run double in Atlanta's three-run third inning. Martin Prado had two doubles, including a run-scoring hit in the fourth.
