Recap: Arizona vs. San Francisco

Phoenix, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - Tim Hudson tossed 7 2/3 shutout innings as the San Francisco Giants blanked the Arizona Diamondbacks, 2-0, in the third installment of a four-game set from Chase Field.

Hudson (1-0) allowed just three hits and fanned seven without issuing a walk in his Giants debut. Hudson, 38, signed a two-year, $23 million contract with San Francisco in the off season.

"I did make some bad pitches during the game, but the guys made some good plays behind me and that's what you need to pitch a good game," said Hudson.

Angel Pagan went 2-for-4 with an RBI and Michael Morse stroked an RBI double for the Giants, who have taken two of the first three games of this series.

Sergio Romo work a perfect ninth inning for his second save of the season.

Gerardo Parra went 2-for-4 with a double and Paul Goldschmidt also stroked a two-bagger for the Diamondbacks, who had just four base runners all game.

"He didn't give us anything to hit. You just have to tip your cap to him (Hudson), we couldn't manufacture any runs tonight," Arizona second baseman Aaron Hill said.

Trevor Cahill (0-1) was pegged with the loss after allowing both run on four hits and three walks over six frame.

San Francisco broke through in the fifth inning. Ehrie Adrianza worked a one- out walked and moved to second on Hudson's sacrifice bunt. Pagan then laced a grounder past a diving Goldschmidt through the hole to plate Adrianza.

The Giants added another run in the sixth. Hunter Pence grounded into a fielder's choice then scored on Morse's double to center. Morse clobbered a fastball to straight-away center field. It appeared Arizona center fielder Tony Campana had a chance to catch the scorching liner, but the ball bounced off the top of his glove, allowing Pence to come around.
