Rickie Weeks was the only Brewer to reach base against Hudson. He doubled in the fourth and walked in the ninth. Hudson retired the other 27 batters he faced, striking out six of them, to move to 4-2 and lower his ERA to 2.86.
Hudson’s previous one-hitters came Aug. 28, 2000 for the A’s against the White Sox and May 1, 2006 for the Braves against the Rockies. It was his 24th complete game and 12th career shutout. Roy Halladay (19) and Chris Carpenter (13) are the only active hurlers with more shutouts than Hudson.
Greinke wasn’t very sharp in his Brewers debut, surrendering five runs — four earned — in four innings. He struck out six and dealt with some less-than-stellar defense, but he missed within the strike zone quite a bit, most notably on Nate McLouth‘s two-run homer in the fourth.
The Braves also won the first game of the doubleheader 8-3 and will get to go for a four-game sweep of the Brewers on Thursday.
