Giants' Tim Hudson hit hard in defeat


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(5/24/2015) Veteran starter Tim Hudson had his worst outing of the season Sunday, lasting just 3 2/3 innings in the Giants' 11-2 loss to the Rockies. 

Hudson was hit hard early and often, allowing a season-high eight earned runs on six hits, including seven of the eight runs Colorado scored in the decisive fourth inning. 

"Today was a tough day, especially for me," Hudson said to CSN Bay Area. "I just put us in a pretty bad spot. It's a long day yesterday and a lot of innings for the 'pen. I would've liked to go further in this game. I just wasn't very good today. They capitalized on some mistake pitches on my part. I just didn't feel good. It's hard to say ... I just didn't have real good stuff. The results of the game probably are very indicative of that."

Hudson saw his ERA rocket to 5.04 after the rough start as he fell to 2-4 on the season. 


Giants' Tim Hudson goes six-plus scoreless in win over Dodgers


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2015) Giants pitcher Tim Hudson tossed six-plus scoreless frames to lead his club past the Dodgers, 2-0, on Tuesday. Hudson (2-3) allowed no runs on five hits and two walks while striking out two over 6 1/3 innings of work. Of his 100 pitches, 66 were strikes.

Hudson has allowed only three earned runs over his last 11 2/3 innings pitched. He lowered his ERA from 4.57 to 4.01 following Tuesday's gem. He will look to get back at .500 on the season Sunday at Coors Field against the Rockies.


Giants P Tim Hudson allows 3 earned runs vs. Astros


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2015) Giants pitcher Tim Hudson struck out four batters in a no-decision during Wednesday night's 4-3 loss to the Astros. 

Hudson went 5 1/3 innings and allowed three earned runs on six hits. Hudson has been somewhat shaky in his last few outings, allowing 12 earned runs in his past three appearances. He also only has 10 strikeouts during that span. 

Hudson now has a 4.57 ERA for the season. 

His next start is projected for Tuesday against the Dodgers. 


Giants P Tim Hudson gives up 15 hits in Thursday's loss


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/8/2015) Giants pitcher Tim Hudson set a career high in hits allowed when he surrendered 15 hits during Thursday's 7-2 loss to the Marlins.

The Marlins scored six runs on the 15 hits. Hudson did not walk a batter and struck out three, but his ERA rose to 4.50. His biggest misstate was a two-run home run to Marcell Ozuna in the seventh inning. Hudson (1-3) has given up five or more runs in two of his last four starts.

His next expected start is Wednesday at Houston.


Giants RHP Tim Hudson pitches well again for first win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/2/2015) Old Man River, otherwise known as Tim Hudson, continued to roll merrily along Saturday afternoon against the Angels.

The 39-year-old Giants right-hander made it four strong performances in five starts this season by allowing just three runs on two hits in eight innings with two walks and three strikeouts. The lone hits were solo home runs by Mike Trout in the fourth and Albert Pujols in the seventh.

Hudson's walk leading off the ninth came around to score, but the bullpen finally nailed down his first win of the season.

He has pitched better than his record and 3.78 ERA indicates. He has yielded three runs or fewer in four of five outings. He will attempt to make it five of six Thursday against Miami.


Giants' Tim Hudson 'leaning' toward retirement at season's end


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/1/2015) Giants starter Tim Hudson, who turns 40 in July, said he is "definitely leaning" toward retirement at season's end, but hasn't not completely closed the door on the possibility of pitching in 2016, FOX Sports reports. According to the right-hander, it will all depend if his body is in decent shape at the end of this season.

Although he feels the tug of his family, his wife, Kim, said she won't convince him to end his career earlier to be with his family.

"I've always told him, 'I'll listen. I just won't weigh in,'" his wife said. "I've talked with other wives who we played with and are now done. They all tell me the same thing: 'That's a decision they have to make, if they're blessed enough to make it on their own and not forced out by injury.'

"I would never say, 'You've got to retire. I can't handle it here anymore.' I tell him, 'You want to keep playing, we'll keep going.' But if he's ready to be done, we're ready to have him home. Either way is great with us."

Through four starts this season, Hudson is 0-2 with a 3.91 ERA, a 1.34 WHIP and 13:7 K:BB ratio over 25 1/3 innings. He will look for career win No. 215 Saturday afternoon against the Angels.


Giants RHP Tim Hudson saddled with no-decision Saturday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Giants starter Tim Hudson got through seven innings Saturday night, but he would have to pitch a little better or go four more innings to have a shot at a victory.

Hudson performed well against Colorado, though, allowing three earned runs on eight hits with no walks and two strikeouts. His team required 11 innings to subdue the Rockies.

"I felt pretty good as the game went on," Hudson said after the game, per MLB.com. "That's kind of been the case the last few outings. I'm not sure why that it is. Maybe it's that these old bones start getting lubed up a little bit after the third or fourth inning."

The right-hander was victimized by the long ball, surrendering solo shots to Troy Tulowitzki in the third and Carlos Gonzalez in the sixth. He had only allowed one home run in 18 innings pitched previously this season. But he would have notched his first win had closer Santiago Casilla not blown a one-run lead in the ninth.

"He mixed his pitches well," Rockies outfielder Corey Dickerson said. "He threw strikes and got ahead of a lot of hitters. Some of us got ourselves out. You've got to have a better approach against a guy like that who's been around and is really crafty."

Hudson has pitched better than his 0-2 record indicates. He owns a decent 3.91 ERA that he will try to lower Friday night against the Angels.


Giants starter Tim Hudson knocked around on Sunday in loss


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/19/2015) Giants starter Tim Hudson (0-2) was knocked around for five earned runs in five innings on Sunday and suffered the loss to the Diamondbacks.

He allowed six hits while striking out six.

Paul Goldschmidt got things going early for the D-Backs with a two-run homer off Hudson in the first inning.

Hudson's next scheduled start is Saturday in Colorado.

Giants' Bochy won't move starters up after Peavy sent to DL


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Sunday that he will insert either Ryan Vogelsong or Yusmeiro Petit into the rotation against the Dodgers Thursday rather than alter his other starters' schedules after Jake Peavy was placed on the disabled list, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The Giants have an off-day Monday, and the team's regular rotation will receive extra rest rather than bump up in order to cover for Peavy's absence. That will leave Chris Heston and Tim Hudson to face the Rockies in Colorado Friday and Saturday, respectively.


Giants' Tim Hudson walks five in scoreless outing vs. Padres


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2015) Giants pitcher Tim Hudson delivered 6 1/3 scoreless innings despite giving up five hits and five walks in Thursday's 1-0, 12-inning win over the Padres.

"It was a good day to pitch -- a good time of day, obviously," Hudson said, referring to the scheduled 3:40 p.m. PT starting time, which cast shadows and glare around Petco Park, per MLB.com. "It probably wasn't the easiest time of day to see some pitches, but as pitchers, we have to try to take advantage of it."

Hudson, who didn't factor into the decision, struck out just one batter on the day. He walked just 34 batters in 189 1/3 innings over 34 starts last season, so his control Thursday was atypical for the veteran, despite the free passes not costing him in the long run. Hudson will look to get a better handle on his pitches when he faces the Rockies next week.


Giants' Tim Hudson works on pitching from stretch Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2015) Giants pitcher Tim Hudson surrendered three earned runs on six hits in six innings while striking out three in his team's 5-2 loss to the Rockies Wednesday.

Hudson pitched mostly from the stretch during the game has he hopes to conquer his inconsistency with runners on base, MLB.com reports.

"It's a timing thing, getting my arm up and letting it get on top of my pitches," Hudson said. "The last couple of innings, it was a little bit better."

Hudson threw 78 pitches while tossing his longest outing of the spring. He has allowed four earned runs in 12 innings in Cactus League play.


Giants' Tim Hudson's ankle holds up in spring training debut


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2015) Giants pitcher Tim Hudson said his ankle held up well after throwing an inning for the first time this spring in Wednesday's game against the Brewers. 

Hudson, who had to have a bone spur shaved down in his ankle this past January, covered first base on the first play of the game. His injury initially came last summer while trying to cover first. 

“The ankle feels good, feels fine,” Hudson said, via the San Jose Mercury News. “It’s a non-issue at this point, I believe. It’s about getting arm strength up, getting the body in shape to where I can throw six, seven, eight innings.

“I’m ahead of where I was last year. From a conditioning standpoint, I’m in better shape than last year.”

Hudson gave up one hit, struck out one and walked one in San Francisco's 4-3 loss to Milwaukee.

"I just started my workouts yesterday, which is kind of crazy to me. Just two weeks ago I was still playing and here I am having to get back ready for next season again.
