Daniel Hudson turned in a strong performance in Saturday’s win over the Padres, allowing just two runs on five hits over eight innings of work.
Hudson struck out five and walked just one in the game. A very encouraging sign is that he was stretched out to 112 pitches and didn’t complain of any lingering soreness after the game. He even helped out his own cause with a sacrifice fly to get the Diamondbacks on the board in the fourth inning. With the win, he improves to 2-1 and lowers his ERA to 4.65. He’ll look to carry over the momentum from this start when he welcomes in the Athletics on Friday.
