Tim Hudson was on a roll Wednesday when his night ended with a gruesome ankle injury.
The Atlanta Braves starting pitcher got hurt in an 8-2 victory over the Mets
in New York. Hudson was running to cover first base when Mets second baseman Eric Young Jr. stepped on the back of the pitcher's lower leg.
Hudson, 38, stayed down on the field for a few minutes in obvious pain before he was carted off. He pitched 7.2 innings before the injury, finishing with nine strikeouts and allowing two runs.
He had X-rays at Citi Field, and the team says he will undergo surgery on his broken ankle in Atlanta once the swelling subsides.
Hudson's injury leaves the Braves without one of their top pitchers, though it is unclear how long he will be out.WARNING:
