Webb doesn’t have a large body of work to draw from this year, but overall he’s been solid with six earned runs given up on 18 hits over his three games.
As for Hudson, he has four straight wins and just broke a three-game scoreless quality start streak with four in 7.2 innings against the Reds. I like Hudson to keep it going here so I’m going St. Louis.
