Welcome, Tim Hudson

That was the real deal in Phoenix tonight from Tim Hudson. Great pitching almost always beats good hitting.

Here's the key part of Chris Haft's game story -- easy to write tonight:

Tim Hudson graced the Giants with the magic he has sustained for 15 years, working 7 2/3 innings Wednesday night in San Francisco's 2-0 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks.
The oldest member of the Giants' starting rotation set an impressive example for his counterparts. Hudson retired the first nine D-backs he faced and ultimately allowed three hits while walking none. Of the 103 pitches he threw, 74 were strikes, an impressive ratio.
Hudson did allow a pair of doubles, but the D-backs went 0-for-8 with runners in scoring position.
Hudson collected his 206th career victory, nudging him ahead of Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia for the lead among active pitchers.
