Hudson sharp for 2 innings, Braves beat Mets

By  | 

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) - Tim Hudson pitched two sharp innings and
rookie Jason Heyward doubled and scored Wednesday as the Atlanta
Braves beat the New York Mets 9-5.

Hudson missed most of the 2009 season after recovering from
Tommy John surgery. The right-hander said he threw pain-free
against Mets and went to the bullpen for more tossing after facing
only six batters.

Braves rookie Jason Heyward doubled and scored. The 20-year-old
outfielder, considered by many the best prospect in baseball,
walked twice, singled and stole a base Tuesday against the Mets in
their exhibition opener.
