PHILADELPHIA, July 6 (UPI) -- Jason Heyward belted a three-run homer to back Tim Hudson's seven innings of one-run ball Saturday and the Atlanta Braves pounded Philadelphia 13-4.

Heyward's blast in the seventh inning put the Braves ahead 10-1 and Atlanta also got long balls from Andrelton Simmons (3-for-5, two RBI, three runs scored) and Dan Uggla (three RBI).

Brian McCann added four hits and Chris Johnson drove in two runs for the National League East-leading Braves, who banged out 19 hits in snapping a three-game losing streak.

Hudson (5-7) posted his first victory since May 5 -- a span of 10 starts -- limiting the Phillies to one run on five hits. The veteran right-hander didn't allow a walk and struck out four.

Kyle Kendrick (7-6) was lit up for six runs on 12 hits over five innings for the Phillies.

Michael Young launched a two-run homer for Philadelphia.
