Latest Update Hudson pulled early in Game 7 start Wed Oct, 29, 11:27 PM
A sound technician who makes excellent in-game adjustments. Uses all his pitches and has a sound gameplan. Is a true work horse and leader.
Flaws: : Has lost some of his strikeout dominance over the years, mainly due to injuries. Can sometimes over-think things when he hits a bad patch.
Hudson struggled during his 1.2 innings, and was rather ineffective. Manager Bruce Bochy wasn't going to let Hudson tough it out as this game had serious implications. Game seven of the World Series is no time to let someone, even with Hudson's track record, to try to tough something out. Analyst: Colby Conway
Hudson allowed one run in the first and two more in the sixth. The walk to Omar Infante was the first Hudson has allowed this postseason. He now owns a 3.72 ERA in these playoffs.Analyst: Steve Pimental
Hudson is a big game, veteran pitcher that thrives in situations like the one he is about to face. The Giants are going with the same rotation they had for the NLCS.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
Staked to a quick 4-0 first-inning league, Hudson may have let his guard down a little too much here. He allowed two runs in the fourth and then one in the sixth. When he gave up a game-tying home run to rookie Randall Grichuk in the seventh, that was all she wrote. The outing wasn't terrible, though the end stat line doesn't look too pretty. Through two post-season appearances, he's allowed five runs over 13.2 innings for a 3.29 ERA.Analyst: Howard Bender
