ATLANTA, April 30 (UPI) -- Tim Hudson racked up his 200th career victory and went 2-for-3 with a solo homer at the plate Tuesday, boosting Atlanta over Washington 8-1.

Hudson (3-1) tamed the Nationals on one run over seven innings, yielding just three hits while walking two and striking out six in breaking a two-start winless streak.

With the Braves leading 2-0 in the second, Hudson led off with a double and scored on Chris Johnson's single.

He socked his third career homer in the fifth, extending Atlanta's lead to 6-1.

Freddie Freeman went 3-for-5 with three RBI and Evan Gattis knocked in a pair for the Braves, who took their second straight against the Nats.

Washington starter Gio Gonzalez (2-2) struck out nine but walked five over four full innings, yielding five runs on seven hits.

Wilson Ramos drove in the only run for the Nationals, who dropped a third consecutive game overall.
