Box Score Bits: Hudson impresses again
• Atlanta Braves right-hander Tim Hudson, the other pitcher in the Stephen Strasburg game Monday, hurled another gem, tossing seven shutout innings to win for the eighth time. Hudson continues to rely on an extreme ground-ball rate -- he induced 15 of them against three fly balls against the Nats -- so he doesn't need to overpower hitters.
• Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander Chad Billingsley made a relatively triumphant return from the disabled list Monday, allowing the Giants two runs in six innings in a no-decision. Billingsley's road ERA rose a bit, but if he can do something about his odd 5.48 home ERA, fantasy owners will have a wise buy-low option.
