Atlanta Braves pitcher Tim Hudson broke his right ankle during Wednesday night's game against the New York Mets and will have surgery once the swelling goes down, the team announced.

Hudson was injured attempting to cover first base after a grounder hit by Mets left fielder Eric Young, Jr. Young stepped on the back of Hudson's ankle near his Achilles attempting to beat the throw by Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman.

Hudson took Freeman's toss at the bag just before Young arrived and Young immediately went over to Hudson to see if he was okay. Hudson left the field on a cart after the injury.

Hudson, 38, was cruising until that point, going 7.2 innings, allowing four hits and striking out nine. The Braves were leading the game 6-0 at the time of the injury and won the game 8-2.
