San Francisco Giants At Arizona Diamondbacks: Tim Hudson’s First Start Of The Season

By Denise Walos

The San Francisco Giants take on the Diamondbacks for game three tonight, first pitch at 6:40pm PT. Tim Hudson will make his first regular season start for the Giants.

The Diamondbacks have had luck against Hudson in the past, Gerardo Parra has hit .375 off Hudson and Mark Trumbo is 1.000 with one home run when facing him. Both are in the lineup for Arizona today.

Brandon Belt is on fire the last two games, hitting a home run in the first two games of the season. The lineup is the same as the last two games but with Ehire Adrianza starting at 2B instead of Joaquin Arias

Trevor Cahill will start for the Diamondbacks tonight. He had a rough start against the Dodgers on March 23, in 4 innings pitched, he allowed 8 hits, 5 ERs, 1 HR and walked four batters for a 11.25 ERA. His Spring Training stats aren’t very impressive either, he finished with a 6.95 ERA in 22 innings pitched.

Here is how he matches up against Giants that have faced him in the regular season.


Tim Lincecum will make his regularly scheduled start tomorrow, after getting sick yesterday.

With Adrianza starting today, Blanco will start in left field tomorrow, Hicks on Friday.
