Giants 4, Cubs 0: Tim Hudson tossed
seven shutout innings and Buster Posey drove in two runs as San
Francisco blanked visiting Chicago.
Angel Pagan, Hunter Pence and Michael Morse had two hits apiece
for the Giants, who own the majors’ best record at 33-19 after
posting their fifth win in their last six games. Hudson (5-2) struck
out five and allowed six hits with no walks while lowering his ERA
The Giants plated two runs in the first inning on Posey’s sacrifice
fly and Morse’s RBI single off Jake Arrieta (1-1), who yielded four
runs and struck out six over six frames. Arrieta matched his season
high with 94 pitches for the Cubs, who saw their four-game winning
streak in San Francisco come to an end.
Ehire Adrianza snapped an 0-for-12 slump with a leadoff single in
the fifth and later scored on Posey’s sacrifice fly, and Pablo
Sandoval followed with an RBI single to put the Giants ahead 4-0.
Sandoval, who went 1-for-4 to extend his hitting streak to seven
games, has driven in at least one run in a career-high seven
Chicago had two runners on with one out in the fourth, but Hudson
retired Luis Valbuena and Welington Castillo to end the threat. The
Cubs fell to 3-3 on their 10-game road trip and remained winless in
18 games when scoring two runs or fewer.
