San  Francisco, CA  (SportsNetwork.com) -  Tim Hudson  tossed seven  scoreless 
innings  and  the San Francisco  Giants blanked the  Chicago Cubs, 4-0, in the 
middle test of a three-game set. 

Hudson  (5-2)  scattered six hits  for the Giants, who  have won five of their 
last six games. Buster Posey posted two sacrifice flies in the triumph. 

Jake  Arrieta (1-1) gave up four runs on seven hits and a walk over six frames 
for Chicago, which has alternated wins and losses over its last eight games. 

The Giants plated a pair in the first and fifth for their scoring output. 

Angel  Pagan and Hunter Pence led off the home first with back-to-back singles 
to  put runners  on the  corners.  After Pence  stole second,  Posey lifted  a 
sacrifice  fly into right to bring home Pagan. Pence scored on Michael Morse's 
single two batters later to make it 2-0. 

Ehire  Adrianza began  the fifth with an infield single and stole second after 
Hudson struck out. He moved to third on another infield single, this by Pagan, 
and  the bags were full following a Pence walk. Adrianza scored on Posey's sac 
fly  to left and  Pablo Sandoval's base hit into left plated Pagan to give San 
Francisco a 4-0 advantage. 

Jeremy  Affeldt  spun a  scoreless eighth and  Jean Machi struck  out two in a 
1-2-3 ninth to seal the win.
