PITCHING MATCHUP: Cardinals RH Dakota Hudson (2018: 4-1, 2.63 ERA) vs. Brewers RH Brandon Woodruff (2018: 3-0, 3.61)

Hudson won the fifth and final spot in the rotation with a strong showing during spring training, going 2-0 with a 1.25 ERA in six appearances (four starts), including 12 consecutive scoreless innings to end exhibition play. The 24-year-old is poised to make his first big-league start after logging 26 relief appearances last season when he allowed opponents to bat .196 against him. Hudson yielded two hits and two walks over 3 1/3 scoreless innings in three games versus the Brewers in 2018.

Woodruff solidified his place on the roster late in 2018 with a dominant effort in September (16 strikeouts in 12 1/3 innings, 0.73 ERA in seven relief appearances) and the postseason (17, 9 1/3, 2.89). The Mississippi State product kept it going in spring training, finishing 2-0 with a 2.55 ERA while fanning 26 across 17 2/3 frames. Paul DeJong hit a three-run homer in his only at-bat versus Woodruff, who owns a 3.86 ERA in two career appearances against the Cardinals.
