Arizona Diamondbacks starting pitcher Daniel Hudson did just about everything he could to ensure he would finally win his tenth game of the season. Not only did he pitch a complete game allowing just five hits but Hudson also hit his first major league home run and drove in three runs to pace the home team to a 4-1 win.
And while all of the drama that went along with a pitching duel would make for compelling journalism that’s not the subject of this column. Instead I want to talk about the activities that occurred off the playing field.
