Trevor Cahill performed much better than his outing in Australia, but Tim Hudson dominated the DBacks offense.

It's not likely to be too successful a game when you don't see your first base runner until the fourth inning, but that's the best the Diamondbacks could manage against Tim Hudson in his first start with the Giants. Hudson was the big story of the day, going 7.2 scoreless innings, eclipsing the six innings and two earned runs Trevor Cahill posted on the mound for the DBacks.

With only three hits on the night, the Diamondbacks didn't offer much in the way of offensive heroes, either- Paul Goldschmidt managed a double to extend his hitting streak and Gerardo Parra managed the only two other hits against Hudson. As much as we might have felt relief to see Hudson pulled later on, the Diamondbacks were even less effective against the San Francisco bullpen, held hitless for the rest of the game, including a dispiriting ninth inning where Sergio Romo went through the lineup 1-2-3 to earn his second save of the season.
