Tim Hudson had 2 good starts to begin the season, but did not get a win not getting much run support from a San Francisco offense that has struggled this season. In his last start he was tagged up for 5 earned runs in 5 innings of work in a 5-1 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks. He looks for his first win tonight, but the Giants have lost 9 of their last 13 games facing winning teams when Hudson has gotten the start. To say that DeLa Rosa did not have a good start in his lone one on the season would be an understatement, as he was rocked for 7 earned runs on 9 hits after only 2 innings.
The Giants had given up 2 runs in each of their games in the 3 game winning streak facing the Dodgers before losing this season opener to Colorado. I think Hudson will have a good start and while De La Rosa will not be hammered like he was in his last outing the Giants’ bats will get to him and San Francisco will take Game 2 of this NL West series.
