PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 23 (UPI) -- Tim Hudson stifled the Phillies on one unearned run over 7 1/3 innings Sunday, staking the Atlanta Braves to a 2-1 victory over Philadelphia.

Hudson (16-6) won for the fourth time in six starts, yielding only two hits while striking out four.

Craig Kimbrel racked up his 39th save for the National League wild card-leading Braves, who reduced their magic number for playoff berth to two.

David Ross supplied a solo homer and Dan Uggla collected an RBI to provide Atlanta's offense.

Cliff Lee (6-8) absorbed the loss despite surrendering just one earned run on nine hits. He fanned 11 in the hard-luck setback.

Chase Utley got the only RBI for Philadelphia.
