This has been the best year for Tim Hudson since his best season which was 2003 with Oakland when he had a 2.70 ERA. This one is right there with it as he finished the regular season with a 2.83 ERA. The Braves have been 13-4 at home in his starts here since May 1st. He has dominated the Giants lineup this season working 15 innings allowing just six hits and two runs for an ERA of 1.20. Jonathan Sanchez had a strong season for the Giants, but his work vs the Braves was less than impressive. Chanchez failed to make it through five innings in either of his two starts vs the Braves this season. The Braves have been better than anyone at home this season and have to be feeling pretty revitalized after not scoring a run for 14 innings in this series and coming from behind to get the equalizer in game two. The Giants are just 13-27 on the road vs a team with a home winning percentage of over .600 and have dropped their last five road playoff games. I'll go with Atlanta in this one.
