Daniel Hudson threw the worst game of his career at the Great American Ballpark yesterday.
​The Arizona Diamondbacks will have to settle for two out of three against the Cincinnati Reds this week after falling short yesterday afternoon against alleged shoplifter Mike Leake, 7-4.

Leake, a rising star for the Reds out of Arizona State University, was good in his first start since getting out of the slammer, striking out six Diamondbacks, giving up four hits, three runs, and two walks against a team that had his number in his last start against them April 10.

On the flipside, Daniel Hudson had the worst start of his career for the Snakes, giving up seven runs in 5.1 innings on four walks and five hits. The Reds jumped out to a fast start in the first, scoring two runs on a Miguel Cairo single and adding two more on bases-loaded walks. Thus the game was over before it could really get started.

Hudson got better through the middle innings, settling down after a terrible first, but he wasn't able to keep the Reds from scoring more runs. 2010 National League Most Valuable Player Joey Votto blasted one into the stands in the fifth. Hudson walked Cairo with one out to the sixth and gave up a run-scoring double to Ramon Hernandez, ending Hudson's night.

Hernandez would go on to score on a base hit allowed by Sam Demel but charged to Hudson.

The game kicked off promisingly enough: Stephen Drew knocked in Ryan Roberts in the first for a quick Diamondbacks lead, even though it all went downhill in the bottom of the inning. Daniel sacrificed himself to score Juan Miranda in the second. Kelly Johnson homered in the fifth and Stephen Drew homered in the top of the ninth, both solo shots.

The D'Backs travel to Queens this weekend to face the New York Mets, who are tied with the Seattle Mariners for the worst record in baseball. It's the sort of series the Diamondbacks need to win to prove they can take care of business. The Mets are one of a few National League teams clearly inferior to the Diamondbacks.
