Tim Hudson tossed two-hit ball over 7 1-3 innings to help the Atlanta Braves move to the brink of a playoff spot with a 2-1 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday.

Hudson (16-6) struck out four and allowed one unearned run to send the Braves back to Atlanta with a shot at winning an NL wild-card berth.

A year after a historic September collapse, the Braves are again close to a postseason spot. They can clinch during a six-game homestand that opens Tuesday.

The Braves were up 8½ games through Sept. 5 last year, but went 9-18 down the stretch and were overtaken by St. Louis on the final day of the season.

This season, the Braves can almost work the final week on setting their playoff rotation.

David Ross hit a solo homer for the Braves.
