Lincecum struggled to throw strikes all afternoon, walking a career-high six batters and allowing a three-run seventh inning that knocked him out of the game.
Hudson scattered eight hits and two runs over 8-2/3 innings, and was lifted for Craig Kimbrel only after allowing a run in the ninth. Kimbrel came in and got pinch hitter Buster Posey to fly out for a two-pitch save.
The Giants couldn't muster much offense outside of Pat Burrell, who went 3-for-4 and scored twice.
The Giants' loss drops them to 10-10 on the season. With the win, the Braves move to 10-12 and have won the first two games of the series. The final game of the series is scheduled for 4:05 p.m. Eastern on Sunday.
