The Braves needed to adjust their rotation because Jair Jurrjens is still slowed by a sore right knee.
The Braves took a half-game lead over San Diego for the wild card with a 2-1 win against the Marlins in 11 innings. The Padres lost 1-0 to the Chicago Cubs.
Manager Bobby Cox says he plans to start Hudson on Tuesday against the Marlins, followed by Lowe on Wednesday.
Jurrjens said a cortisone shot on Saturday helped only a little. He says he may have a second MRI exam if the knee doesn't improve. The first test showed a slight tear.
