ATLANTA, June 20 (UPI) -- Tim Hudson tossed eight-plus shutout innings and knocked in the game's only runs with a home run Monday, boosting the Atlanta Braves to a 2-0 win over Toronto.

Hudson (6-6) set down 20 straight batters after J.P Arencibia's second-inning single. He ended up allowing two hits and one walk while striking out eight.

The right-hander threw only 96 pitches, 63 of them for strikes, before yielding to closer Craig Kimbrel after allowing a single and a walk to lead off the ninth.

Kimbrel followed with three straight strikeouts to rack up his 20th save as Atlanta took the first a three-game interleague series with Toronto.

Hudson broke a scoreless tie in the seventh inning by blasting a pitch from Ricky Romero (6-7) into the left field stands, scoring Diory Hernandez in front of him.

Romero surrendered just the two runs on six hits in a seven-inning start for the Blue Jays.
