Head to head: This is the only series of the season. The Red Sox lost two of three in Atlanta last year.
Miscellany: Hudson got shelled in his only appearance at Fenway Park last season, dropping a 12-2 decision while pitching for Oakland . . . Atlanta, which was just swept by the surging Padres, has lost six of its last nine . . . After a miserable Opening Day, Smoltz has lowered his ERA to 2.83, eighth in the National League . . . The Braves will be without starting pitcher John Thomson for up to three months after the righthander was diagnosed with a partial tear to the supporting structure around the tendon of his middle finger. He hurt the finger during Monday's start in San Diego.
