Tim Hudson’s first season in San Francisco has been so good that there was much media speculation in May about whether or not the former Braves pitcher would be a Hall of Famer some day.
But Hudson showed he’s human Wednesday with his first bad start of the season. He gave up seven runs in the Giants’ 7-6 loss to the White Sox in Chicago.
“It’s frustrating, no doubt about it,” Hudson said. “You score six runs on a day I pitch, we should win these games.”
Hudson allowed 12 hits, two of them home runs, in 4 2/3 innings, his shortest outing of the season.
The 38-year-old Hudson, who played nine seasons for the Braves, is 7-3 with a 2.39 ERA and has helped the Giants hold first place in the NL West.
As for the Hall of Fame analysis, the Columbus, Ga., native is now 212-114 in his career.
