Can Hudson Make it Six Straight?

on .

Well the Braves are certainly trying to make things interesting in the end. Atlanta is still 4.5 out in the East and 5.5 out in the Wild Card, but have won their past five straight and will send ace Tim Hudson to the mound tonight to try for six. Hudson (16-8, 3.33) will toe the rubber against Carlos Villanueva (8-4, 4.11) in the 7:05 ET showdown on ESPN. Octavio Dotel, who was activated yesterday, will be available to pitch for the first time today since going on the DL. I'm not going to be able to watch because of Yom Kippur so I figured I'd give you a couple things to discuss before the game and another thread to talk about the game. 1. Jeff Bennett looked pretty impressive yesterday. He had a pretty nice three-pitch mix working and seemed to be spotting the ball well. He threw the ball up in the zone a little too much for my liking and his control was better than it was in Richmond but I think he might be able to have some success out of the back-end of the rotation. What is your opinion on his start and future in regards to this team? 2. Rafael Soriano was suspended for four games for throwing at Dan Uggla during the ninth inning of the first game of the Marlins series. The ball hit the Marlins second baseman right below the neck on his back and since it was so close to the head, he got such a harsh punishment. The pitch was in response to three HBP against the Braves and another pitch that sailed behind Andruw Jones' had by Byung-Hyun Kim. Does the punishment fit the crime? Should Kim be suspended too?
