Giants manager Bruce Bochy has set his rotation for the NLDS, announcing that Jake Peavy will start Game 1 against the Nationals.
Tim Hudson will follow in Game 2 and then Madison Bumgarner, who shut out the Pirates in the Wild Card Game to get the Giants to the NLDS, will start Game 3. After that it’ll either be Yusmeiro Petit or a short-rest Peavy in Game 4.
Peavy struggled for the Red Sox last season and this season, but then posted a 2.17 ERA in 12 starts for the Giants following a July 26 trade. Hudson, on the other hand, struggled down the stretch by allowing 23 runs in his final 22 innings.
