Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - Tim Hudson tossed eight strong innings on Tuesday and the Atlanta offense banged out a season-high 17 hits en route to an 8-1 drubbing of the Arizona Diamondbacks in the opener of a three-game series.

Hudson (6-3) allowed one run on seven hits and a walk with seven strikeouts to earn the victory. Anthony Varvaro finished off the rout with a clean ninth inning for the Braves, who snapped a brief two-game skid.

Michael Bourn crushed a solo home run among his two hits and scored twice. Freddie Freeman had three hits, including an RBI double, and Andrelton Simmons went 2-for-4 with an RBI in the victory. Chipper Jones contributed three hits for Atlanta.

Daniel Hudson (3-2) was rocked for five runs on seven hits with three strikeouts in just 1 2/3 innings. Jason Kubel provided the only offense with a home run for the Diamondbacks, who had their four-game winning streak halted.
