Tim Hudson allowed four earned runs in six innings against the Pirates to help the Braves reclaim second place in the NL East for the first time since May 30.

“It’s a great feeling to be back,” said Troy Glaus of his team’s new position in the standings. “People doubted us all year and said we’re not a second place team. But, I think our recent play is proof to the rest of the league that we belong here.”

The Phillies, who edged the Marlins 8-7 on Tuesday for their 80th win of the season, fell back into first place, signaling the team’s inevitable spiral into the playoffs for a fourth straight season.
