The Chicago Cubs will have Jake Arrieta take the mound to try earn a series victory when the Cubs face off against Tim Hudson and the Giants on Tuesday night at AT&T Park.

Hudson (4-2, 2.13 ERA) signed with the Giants after he suffered an ankle injury that looked to end his career. The 37-year-old’s last appearance against the Cubs on April 7, 2013 where he struck out seven and walked two in a 4-2 win.
