Hudson hit hard for first time with Giants

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.
