ATLANTA (AP) -Peter Moylan pitched three scoreless innings in relief of injured starter Tim Hudson, and the Atlanta Braves ended a four-game losing streak with a 9-5 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Saturday night.
Hudson limped off the field in the third inning after he was hit on his left leg by Jacque Jones' sharply hit grounder. The right-hander limped slightly as he walked off the field with a bruised leg. X-rays were negative, and his status for his next start was not immediately known.
Moylan (2-1) came in and allowed no hits and walked one for the win. Edgar Renteria homered and drove in four runs, and Andruw Jones added a two-run homer for the Braves.
Cubs starter Jason Marquis (5-3) gave up Andruw Jones' two-run homer in the first and was knocked out of the game in Atlanta's four-run second inning. He gave up four hits and six runs, two earned, in 1 2-3 innings.
Hudson gave up five hits and five runs in two innings.
