Tim Hudson had a short leash Wednesday, lasting just 1 2/3 innings while giving up two runs in a no-decision against the Royals in Game 7 of the World Series.
It was no secret that manager Bruce Bochy would be quick with the hook in the deciding game -- there was even some question as to whether Madison Bumgarner would come back to start the game on two days' rest instead of the 39-year-old Hudson -- and when Hudson got into trouble in the second inning Bochy turned to his bullpen. Hudson gave up three hits and a walk in the game, with all three hits coming in the second inning. Hudson has one more year at $12 million left on his current contract. He'll turn 40 in July.

Tim Hudson made was defeated in his long-awaited World Series debut on Friday, surrendering three runs on four hits over 5 2/3 innings against the Royals.

The 39-year-old right-hander became the second oldest hurler to make his debut on the grandest stage. He gave up a leadoff double to Alcides Escobar to begin the ballgame, who advanced to third and then scored on consecutive ground balls. He settled in nicely afterwards, retiring 12 in a row at one point, until the Royals strung three hits together to scratch out a pair of runs in the sixth inning. Now facing a 2-1 deficit, the Giants are scheduled to turn to Ryan Vogelsong in an attempt to even the series back up.
Oct 24 - 11:27 PM

Tim Hudson will start Game 3 of the World Series against the Royals.

Hudson will take the hill when the Giants return to AT&T Park Friday. He'll look to get back on track after he allowed four runs over 6 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Cardinals in the NLCS. Royals manager Ned Yost hasn't yet announced who will oppose Hudson in Game 3.
Oct 18 - 5:55 PM

Tim Hudson was good early but faded late in Tuesday's 5-4 NLCS Game 3 victory over the Cardinals.

Hudson was spotted a 4-0 lead after the Giants plated four runs in the bottom of the first, but the Cards chipped away with two runs in the fourth and another tally in the sixth. Even though Hudson appeared to be clearly fading, manager Bruce Bochy sent him out for the seventh and he served up a one-out, game-tying solo homer to Randal Grichuk. The Giants eventually won it in extras on a Randy Choate throwing error. Hudson is set up for Game 7 in St. Louis if the series goes the distance.
Oct 14 - 8:05 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy confirmed Sunday that Tim Hudson will start Game 3 of the NLCS against the Cardinals.

The veteran right-hander surrendered just one run over 7 1/3 innings in his lone start in the Divisional Series. Ryan Vogelsong will follow in Game 4 with Madison Bumgarner taking the ball again in Game 5.
Oct 12 - 5:48 PM

Tim Hudson is scheduled to start for the Giants in Game 2 of their NLDS matchup with the Nationals.

Jake Peavy is taking Game 1 and Madison Bumgarner, who threw a shutout in Wednesday night's Wild Card Game defeat of the Pirates, will start NLDS Game 3. Hudson, 39, registered a 3.57 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, and 120/34 K/BB ratio across 189 1/3 regular-season innings.
Oct 2 - 11:00 AM

Tim Hudson served up three three runs on five hits across 5 1/3 frames in Wednesday’s loss to the Dodgers.

Hudson struck out four and walked one in another poor start. He hasn't won a game since August 22. Hudson was complaining of a sore hip as recently as last week, and the pain is apparent in his September numbers (9.92 ERA and 2.08 WHIP coming into tonight). The veteran concludes the regular season 9-13 with a 3.57 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 116/33 K/BB ratio over 184 innings. The 39-year-old will honor the last year of his two-year, $23 million contract with the Giants in 2015. San Francisco would certainly take 30-plus starts and a mid-3 ERA again.
Sep 25 - 1:21 AM

Tim Hudson gave up five runs -- four earned -- in 4 1/3 innings Friday in a loss to the Padres.

Whether Hudson's sore hip was still a problem or not, the Giants have to be concerned about his struggles of late. He's made each of his last three starts on an extra day of rest, but it hasn't done him much good. He's now 9-12 with a 3.52 ERA for the season. Mixed leaguers will probably want to try someone else next week.
Sep 20 - 1:07 AM

Tim Hudson has been receiving treatment on his right hip.

Hudson had issues with his left hip earlier this season. However, he'll throw a bullpen session on Tuesday and remains in line to make his next scheduled start Friday.
Sep 16 - 7:12 PM

Tim Hudson was charged with six runs in one-plus innings Saturday in a loss to the Dodgers.

It was the shortest start of Hudson's career, eclipsing a 1 2/3-innings outing against the Red Sox on April 15, 2000. He hadn't had a start end short of three innings since way back in 2007. Hudson walked none and struck out two tonight, but he allowed eight hits, including five in a row in the first. The decision was made to pull him after back-to-back singles to start the second, and both inherited runners came around to score off Tim Lincecum. Obviously, Hudson hasn't looked nearly as good in the second half as he did in the first. Still, this probably shouldn't be taken as a sign that he's completely untrustworthy. It's best to stick with him with a start against the Padres next on the schedule.
Sep 14 - 12:42 AM

Tim Hudson posted a quality start in Sunday’s loss to the Tigers, allowing three runs on eight hits in his six frames.

Hudson walked one and struck out one on the night. All of the damage against him came in the third inning, highlighted by a two-run homer off the bat of Miguel Cabrera. The 39-year-old hurler continues to shine, registering a 3.12 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 112/31 K/BB ratio in 178 2/3 innings. He’ll look to get back in the win column when he takes on the division-rival Dodgers on Saturday.
Sep 8 - 12:05 AM

Tim Hudson allowed six runs (five earned) over five innings against the Rockies on Monday.

Hudson wasn't even the worst starter in this old school Rocky Mountain slug-fest, as Franklin Morales exists. Hudson was actually out to a 7-2 lead as he went to the mound to start the sixth. The Rockies put four runs up in the frame and drove Hudson from the game. Chalk it up to "these things happen" and "welcome to Colorado." The rough outing set his ERA back to 3.08. He'll move on from this one without anybody being worse the wear. The veteran continues to put up a lovely season, with a 3.08 ERA and 1.16 WHIP. He'll try to rebound in the thicker air of Detroit in his next start.
Sep 1 - 9:39 PM

Tim Hudson yielded merely one earned run to the Rockies over eight innings on Wednesday in a no-decision.

Hudson punched out eight and scattered four hits in the gem. Outside of a Corey Dickerson solo home run, Hudson looked like a vintage version of himself. Recently, he had looked like a cheap knock-off. Hudson beat Washington last time around, but had lost seven of eight decisions prior to that, posting a 4.71 ERA during that stretch. He has pitched better on the road than at home this year, with a 2.37 road ERA and 3.60 at home (including 0-4 with a 6.00 ERA in his five starts there prior to tonight). Hudson has a rematch against Franklin Morales on Monday, this time in Colorado.
Aug 28 - 1:19 AM

Tim Hudson gave up two runs (one earned) on five hits over 5 1/3 innings in Friday's 10-3 win over the Nationals.

So it appears that the Nationals can lose occasionally. Hudson's serviceable outing snapped the National's ten-game winning streak. He allowed five hits while striking out three and walking one. The Nationals scored on a first inning fielding error and a fourth inning Jayson Werth homer. Hudson might be 39-years old, but he continues to provide productive outings for the Giants. While he hasn't gone longer than six innings in any of his last four starts, he's pitching to the tune of a 2.99 ERA and 1.18 ERA. He'll face the Rockies next time out.
Aug 22 - 11:45 PM

Tim Hudson coughed up five earned runs in four innings Saturday but the Giants beat the Phillies.

Hudson surrendered eight hits and walked three in the rough outing, but the San Francisco offense rallied late and the veteran right-hander escaped with a no-decision. Hudson has been much more mediocre in recent weeks for the Giants, who are trying to get back into contention for a postseason spot. Hudson will aim to get back on track next week in Washington, D.C.
