The Braves need to figure out a way to beat Kendrick. They've beaten him only once in his 11 starts against them, and that was back in 2008. Now would be the perfect time to drop a second loss on him. Hudson and Kendrick faced off earlier this year at CBP in the game where McCann hit an eighth-inning grand slam. Atlanta has won eight of Hudson's last nine starts.

Their winning streak against the Phillies is over; time to start a new one. Go Braves!
