Worth noting

• The Braves are the fourth National League team in the live-ball era to open the season with two consecutive three-homer games, following the 2002 and 2003 Giants, and the 2003 Pirates.

• Tim Hudson is three wins from his 200th career victory. Craig Kimbrel entered Thursday's series finale 10 saves from notching the 100th of his young career.
