Daniel Hudson Complete Game Dominance In Win Over White Sox, 4-1

Daniel Hudson was brilliant against this former team. He went the full nine innings, giving up just one run and three hits to the Chicago White Sox. The Arizona Diamondbacks, on the other side of that trade, were able to hang four runs on Edwin Jackson to earn the 4-1 win in the first game of the series.

Hudson threw 119 pitches on the night and had just over 100 headed into the ninth inning. D-backs close J.J. Putz was warming up but had pitched the two previous nights and gave three runs in those outings. It was huge for Hudson to give his bullpen a rest and he wanted the ball in the ninth.

"I wanted to finish the game," Hudson said after the game. "I still felt strong coming after the eighth inning and Charlie (pitching coach Charles Nagy) came up and asked if I was still good and I said, 'yeah, I want to finish it.' I was really happy he was going to let me go back out and try and finish it."

Justin Upton picked up where he left off in Thursday's win over the Giants. He scored the last run of that game with a tenth inning walk-off home run. He knocked in the first run of this game in the first frame with a single that plated Stephen Drew. Doubles from Miguel Montero and Kelly Johnson added two more to the total and Hudson gave himself even more breathing room with an RBI double of his own in the seventh.

Paul Konerko hit a solo home run to do the only damage to Hudson's otherwise clean game.
