Michael Bourn had three hits, including a two-run homer, and drove in three, and Uggla also had three hits.

Chad Durbin (4-1) tossed a perfect sixth to earn the win.

Hudson allowed six runs and six hits in 4 1-3 innings. It was his second-shortest outing of the season.

The Braves chased Phillies starter Kyle Kendrick in the fourth, taking a 6-1 lead that seemed insurmountable with Hudson on the mound. The three-time All-Star righty is 132-3 when given a lead of three or more.

MARLINS 13, METS 0

NEW YORK (AP) _ Giancarlo Stanton hit two two-run homers, Jose Reyes also connected against his former team and the Miami Marlins handed the Mets their ninth straight loss at home.

Reyes extended his hitting streak to a career-high 26 games, the longest in the majors this season. Stanton went deep twice against an ineffective Chris Young (3-6) and finished with four hits in the All-Star slugger’s second game back from knee surgery.

After going seven games without a home run, Miami hit four in one night at Citi Field to back Nathan Eovaldi (3-7). Greg Dobbs capped the outburst with a two-run shot in the ninth.

NATIONALS 4, ASTROS 3

HOUSTON (AP) _ Gio Gonzalez pitched a nine-inning complete game and hit a home run _ both career firsts _ to lead the Washington Nationals past Houston.

Nationals manager Davey Johnson was hoping Gonzalez (14-6) could go deep into this game after his bullpen had been taxed with games of 11 and 12 innings to start this series.

He got just what he wanted from Gonzalez, whose other complete game was an eight-inning outing with Oakland in 2010. Things got dicey in the ninth when he allowed three hits and a run and had the tying run on third before striking out Matt Downs to end the game.

Gonzalez put the NL East leaders ahead for good in the second with a two-run homer off Armando Galarraga (0-2).
