Jones Beats Brewers 2-5

Andruw Jones gave Tim Hudson all the support he needed Sunday.

Jones hit his major league-leading 41st and 42nd home runs, Hudson pitched his second straight complete game, and the Atlanta Braves beat the Milwaukee Brewers 5-2.

"Something special, Hudson getting back-to-back complete games," Braves manager Bobby Cox said. "Andruw gave us what we needed today."

Jones also took over the NL lead with 102 RBI with his eighth multihomer game of the season. His three-run shot to left field in the third inning against Chris Capuano gave Atlanta all the runs it needed.

"I wanted to go out there and start something," Jones said. "I felt good in batting practice."
Hudson (11-7) scattered seven hits, including homers to Brady Clark and Chad Moeller. He pitched his first complete game of the season Monday against Chicago.
The Brewers' next game is Tuesday as Doug Davis will try again for win number 10 against the Pirates.
