The Braves will send Tim Hudson (0-0, 1.29 ERA) to the mound. Hudson pitched well in his first start of the season Wednesday, allowing one run and two hits over seven innings as Atlanta rallied for a 3-2 victory in 11 innings at Philadelphia.

The right-hander struggled at home last season, going 6-6 with a 4.40 ERA in 18 starts. Hudson faced Washington once last season and gave up five runs over 5 2-3 innings in a 5-2 loss on June 5.

 Washington will give Matt Chico (0-0, 13.50) his second career start after he had a difficult outing in his debut. He lasted only four-plus innings and was tagged for six runs and eight hits in a 7-6 victory over Florida on Wednesday.

The left-hander was acquired by the Nationals in an August trade that sent Livan Hernandez to Arizona. He spent all of 2006 pitching in Double-A.
