"Martin Prado gave me my birthday present, that was the best one of the day," said Chipper Jones, who also aided this victory with a fifth-inning solo shot that made him just the fifth player in Major League history to hit a home run on his 40th birthday.

Martin Prado: "Mike kept us in the game and Chipper came up big for us and hit the homer. After that we kept playing inning by inning, at-bat by at-bat, everybody had great at-bats. I’m just glad I got a big hit to help the team. It was a big game."

The sidearmer had 15 strikeouts with two walks in 12-1/3 scoreless innings over seven relief appearances at Gwinnett. "He’s pitching well, and he gets an opportunity<" Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "Obviously when Huddy [Tim Hudson] comes back on Sunday we’re going to have to make a move." Gonzalez noted that it wouldn’t necessarily be Gearrin sent down when Hudson is activated from the 15-day disabled list.

"I feel like we’re going pretty good from a team standpoint," Hudson said. "The chemistry is really good. We’re playing some good baseball. Whatever I can do to come in and make some kind of positive impact, that’s always what I’m looking to do."
