Hudson (3-1) scattered four hits over seven innings and struck out five. He walked two, ending an impressive streak of 30 consecutive innings without one.
Michael Bourn tripled and scored Cleveland's only run. Jason Kipnis and Nick Swisher added two hits apiece for the Indians, who lost for just the second time in six games.
Carlos Carrasco (0-3) allowed four runs over six innings.
