MLB roundup: Tim Hudson breaks ankle in Braves’ win

Tim Hudson needs surgery on his broken right ankle, an injury that leaves the NL East-leading Atlanta Braves without one of their top pitchers.

Hudson got hurt while covering first base Wednesday night during an 8-2 victory over the Mets in New York when Eric Young Jr. stepped on the back of his lower leg. The 38-year-old righthander was carted off the field in obvious pain.
