Tim Hudson SP SF 3 Days

Hudson gave up a run on four hits, a walk and eight strikeouts over eight innings Wednesday in a no-decision against the Rockies.

The outing was one of Hudson's best since joining the Giants in 2014 while striking out a season-high eight batters. The right-hander needed only 87 pitches (61 for strikes) to get through eight innings and probably should have been allowed to finish it himslelf as Santiago Cassilla blew the lead in the top of the ninth. Hudson remains 9-9 on the year with a 2.90 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 106:29 K:BB ratio in 167.2 innings. He faces the Rockies again Monday, but this time in Colorado.

Hudson allowed two runs (one earned) on five hits, walking one and striking out three over 5.1 innings of a 10-3 win over the Nationals on Friday night.

Hudson (9-9, 2.99 ERA) evened his record with a solid, albeit not terribly efficient (he needed 95 pitches, just 59 for strikes) outing. He is not a big strikeout producer, but he has been a nice fantasy option this year. He'll take on the Rockies at home next time out.

Hudson was hit hard Saturday, surrendering five runs on eight hits and three walks over four innings against the Phillies.

Hudson has hit a rough patch in the month of August, posting a 6.00 ERA in three starts. We have seen a regression since the All-Star break (1-3, 3.57 ERA) after his stellar first half (7-6, 2.87 ERA). At 39-years-old, it would have been amazing if Hudson kept up his early season success throughout the entire 162-game schedule, so this minor regression is likely a result of the veteran getting tired down the stretch. He is still a solid option going forward, but owners should not expect the dominant results we saw in the first half.

Hudson gave up three runs on six hits over six innings in a losing effort against the Royals on Saturday.

James Shields tossed a complete game shutout, negating the value of Hudson's quality start Saturday. It was another efficient outing for the veteran right-hander, as he needed just 84 pitches to record 18 outs before departing in the seventh inning. Hudson is lined up to face the Phillies in a home start Saturday for his next turn in the rotation.

Tim Hudson gave up three runs on six hits over seven innings Tuesday in a loss to the Pirates.

Hudson struck out two, walked one, and yielded two homers which accounted for all the runs charged to him. Indeed, he pitched pretty well outside Josh Harrison's solo homer in the first and Travis Snider's two-run shot in the following frame. Over his first seven home starts this season, the right-hander went 5-0 with a 2.16 ERA, but he's now lost four straight at AT&T Park. Those numbers are systemic of his overall struggles. Hudson started the year 7-2 with a 1.81 ERA in 13 starts, but entered 1-5 with a 4.40 ERA in his past seven. Hudson toes the rubber against the Mets in New York next week.

Tim Hudson lost despite giving up just a pair of unearned runs over six innings Thursday against the Phillies.

Hudson certainly hasn't pitched as well the last month and a half as he did early on, but he also hasn't had much luck; he's had four outings since June 29 in which he's allowed one or two runs and he's gone 1-2 in those games. The Phillies' runs today were aided by a passed ball in the first and a Michael Morse error in the fifth.

Tim Hudson held the Marlins to one run in 7 1/3 innings Saturday for his eighth win of the season.

Hudson gave up an RBI single to Casey McGehee in the bottom of the first inning and then went into cruise control, pitching all the way into the eighth. The veteran right-hander will carry a 2.78 ERA and 1.10 WHIP into his next start on the road against the Phillies.

He's replacing teammate Madison Bumgarner, who is starting on Sunday. Hudson is a worthy addition, having posted a 2.87 ERA and 1.10 WHIP over 18 starts during the first half. It will be his fourth All-Star appearance.

Tim Hudson was tagged for six runs in 5 1/3 innings by the A's on Thursday.

Hudson picked the Giants over his original team as a free agent over the winter, causing the A's to sign Scott Kazmir instead. All parties are probably happy with the way things worked out. Hudson, while struggling some of late, has gone 7-6 with a 2.87 ERA in San Francisco.
