Giants' Tim Hudson becomes 15th pitcher to beat every MLB team
Tim Hudson can add another check mark to his list of career accomplishments.
With a win over the Oakland A's on Sunday, the veteran San Francisco Giants righty became only the 15th pitcher in history to notch a win against all 30 MLB teams.
"I'm not sure if you could say it's on my bucket list, but it is a pretty cool thing to be able to say you've done," Hudson said after the game. "I've been fortunate enough to play for some really good teams and have a chance to beat all of them."
Hudson, who turned 40 years old on July 14, began his career with the A's in 1999, winning a career-high 20 games with Oakland in 2000.
As noteworthy as the win was for Hudson, it was even more important for his team, as the Giants pulled within a game of the NL-West leading Los Angeles Dodgers.
"It is nice to close the gap on them," Hudson said. "Right now we're trying to inch our way back in it and play as good baseball as we can."
