Hudson, D-backs Blank Pads In 6-0 Victory

Daniel Hudson was flashing stuff from all the way back to 2010, as he dominated for seven innings to lead the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 6-0 shutout victory over the San Diego Padres.

Hudson did not allow a run during his time on the mound, and his efforts reflect an overall uptick in the performance of the D-backs starting pitchers. He had six strikeouts, five hits, and zero walks for the evening. This was the third time in his career Hudson had gone 7.0 or more scoreless innings. He is now 3-4 on the season. He and fellow starter Ian Kennedy have gotten their games back on track as of late after rough starts to the season.

Justin Upton led an early productive Diamondbacks offense, with a two-run homer in the fourth inning. Stephen Drew, Melvin Mora, and Juan Miranda added RBIs of their own. 2011 sensation Ryan Roberts had three singles, and scored three runs.

Padres righty Dustin Moseley had a tough night, giving up all six runs in the first four innings. He is now 1-4, though his ERA remains at 2.

The series is now tied, and the two teams will finish up the series on Sunday afternoon. D-backs LHP Joe Saunders (0-3, 5.67 ERA) will be facing off against the Pads' RHP Aaron Harang (4-2, 4.37 ERA).
