Hudson helps Cards get it right vs. lefty-heavy Rangers

Facing a flotilla of lefthanded batters Saturday, Hudson had one of his most effective outings of the season, handling six innings and piloting the Cardinals to a 8-2 victory against Texas at Globe Life Park. The win, which came between torrential storms in Arlington, offered a momentary break in the Cardinals’ squishy May and a continuation of what Hudson has done with three quality starts in the month. Two bands of severe storms, which included hail and shreds of lightning through the sky, delayed the start by 2 hours, 11 minutes. As Carlos Martinez made his debut of 2019 with a scoreless ninth inning a third thunderstorm dumped on the ballpark.
