ATLANTA, April 7 (UPI) -- Tim Hudson supplied 6 2/3 strong innings and Ramiro Pena delivered the go-ahead hit Sunday, helping Atlanta sweep the Chicago Cubs with a 5-1 victory.

Hudson (1-0) held the Cubs to just one run on three hits, striking out seven with two walks as the Braves completed a three-game sweep of Chicago and improved to 5-1 on the season.

Pena's two-run single in the sixth inning broke a 1-1 tie and Dan Uggla belted a solo homer in the triumph.

Cubs starter Jeff Samardzija (1-1) fanned 13 but still took the loss, surrendering four runs on four hits while issuing four walks over 5 2/3 frames.

Chicago fell for the fourth time in five games.
