MIAMI (AP) -- By the time Chipper Jones pulled up lame, the Atlanta Braves already had plenty of runs for Tim Hudson.
Then Hudson departed with a tender elbow.
Jones strained his left hamstring, and Hudson left after six innings with tightness in his right elbow, tempering the glow of the Braves' 9-4 victory Wednesday night over the Florida Marlins.
Jones, the major-league batting leader at .369, was hurt running out a groundout in the fourth inning and immediately left the game. It was an alarming development for a team that's 2-10 without Jones and struggling to stay in the NL East race.
Hudson's status is even more worrisome. He improved to 11-7, allowing only three hits and one walk, but departed after throwing just 68 pitches in six shutout innings.
