ATLANTA, April 29 (UPI) -- Tim Hudson logged five effective innings in his first start of the season Sunday, earning the victory in Atlanta's 4-3 decision over Pittsburgh.

Hudson (1-0) came off the disabled list following off-season back surgery to log the win, holding the Pirates to two runs on six hits over five innings.

The right-hander walked a pair and struck out six.

Dan Uggla drew a bases-loaded walk for the go-ahead run in the fifth inning after Michael Bourn singled and Martin Prado and Brian McCann each drew bases-on-balls off Kevin Correia (1-1) with one out.

Prado added some insurance with a solo homer in the seventh and the Braves held on to down Pittsburgh for the second time in three games.

Jose Tabata went 3-for-5 with a two-run single for the Bucs.
