Tim Hudson started and earned a victory against the Athletics on Sunday afternoon, becoming the 15th pitcher to earn a W against all 30 teams, as MLB’s Stat of the Day Twitter account notes. Hudson allowed three runs on seven hits with no walks and one strikeout in five innings.

Hudson was drafted in the sixth round of the 1997 draft by the Athletics and pitched for them through 2004 after which he was traded to the Braves. He signed with the Giants as a free agent in November 2013.

Hudson had faced the Athletics on two previous occasions but didn’t earn the victory either time. He allowed five runs in five innings against them with the Braves on May 17, 2008 and allowed six runs in 5 1/3 innings against them with the Giants on July 10 last season.

The 40-year-old right-hander has a 4.80 ERA on the year with a 1.41 WHIP and a 53/26 K/BB ratio in 101 1/3 innings.

LOS ANGELES — Jeff Samardjiza has been placed on the 10-day injured list by the San Francisco Giants due to right shoulder impingement.

Manager Gabe Kapler said before Saturday’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers that the right-hander told trainers and the coaching staff that he felt like wasn’t able to get the arm loose during Friday’s game. Samardjiza is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Saturday.

Samardjiza went four-plus innings and allowed six runs on seven hits in a 7-2 loss to the Dodgers. He is 0-2 with a 9.88 ERA in three starts.

The Giants have recalled left-hander Andrew Suarez from their alternate training site, but Kapler said he hasn’t finalized a revised starting rotation.
