On Tuesday against the Nats, Braves pitcher Tim Hudson got his 200th career win. He’s the third active pitcher to clock that many wins, and Eye on Baseball offered this interesting bit of trivia after the game.
Davey Johnson was the opposing manager for Tim Hudson’s first win (Dodgers, 1999) and 200th win (Nats, tonight).

“That’s the best I’ve seen him,” Davey Johnson said of Tim Hudson to reporters postgame. “He used all his pitches, as usual, and made a lot of good pitches. “Just a heck of a ballgame.” Gio Gonzalez also offered kudos to Hudson. “It was Hudson’s night,” he said. “Tip your cap.”

The St. Louis Zoo is asking people to vote on a name for its new baby elephant. A group of Nats fans have started a Facebook campaign to encourage people to vote for Harper, which is one of the choices. They also have a Twitter feed, which is a lot of work for a contest that ends Sunday, but let’s see how this goes.
