Hudson allowed 10 base hits and 3 walks.  Brian Shaw took the loss allowing an unearned run in the bottom of 8th.  That’s the bad news.  The good news, however, is that the D-Backs bats finally seemd to wake up.  Justin Upton had his best game of the season going 2-4 with 2 runs and a walk.  Paul Goldschmidt and Miguel Montero–who homered–each had two RBI.  However, despite the 6 runs, the D-Backs were shut out over the final six innings by Colorado relievers.

On Saturday, the D-Backs will give heavily scrutinized starter Josh Collmenter another start.  If Collmenter can turn around from his terrible spring and start the the season, his days in the rotation are definitely numbered.
