WASHINGTON, Sept. 16 (UPI) -- Tim Hudson pitched his 10th career shutout Sunday, as the Atlanta Braves goose-egged Washington, 3-0, in the finale of a three-game set.

Hudson (16-8) broke a personal three-game losing streak. He yielded seven hits while walking one and striking out six, for his first shutout of the season.

Kelly Johnson homered and Mark Teixeira drove in two runs for the Braves, who had lost four of their last six.

The Braves entered the day 8 1/2 games behind the first-place New York Mets in the NL East and 5 1/2 games behind the San Diego Padres in the NL wild-card race.

D'Angelo Jimenez doubled and singled for the Nationals, who have lost four of five.

Washington starter Shawn Hill (4-4) went five innings, giving up three runs on five hits with four walks and two strikeouts.
