TIM HUDSON… Three-time All-Star is scheduled to make his 2nd start this season and his first in a Giants uniform in the home opener…Tuesday’s game will be his 429th appearance and his 428th start…signed by the Giants as a free agent, to a two-year contract, Nov. 19, 2013…has enjoyed a very successful career against the D-Backs, going 8-1 lifetime with a 1.99 ERA in 12 starts (one complete game)…his 1.99 ERA ranks as the second-lowest against Arizona among pitchers who have tossed at least 75.0 innings against AZ.
