ST. LOUIS (AP) – Dakota Hudson is working on a no-hitter for the St. Louis Cardinals through six innings against the Milwaukee Brewers.
Hudson has struck out six and walked three, including Christian Yelich twice. The right-hander has thrown 92 pitches, and the Cardinals lead 3-0 on Monday night in a matchup of NL Central contenders.
Milwaukee’s best chance for a hit came in the sixth when Trent Grisham hit a hard grounder up the middle. St. Louis shortstop Paul DeJong made a diving stop and threw out Grisham at first base.
The 24-year-old Hudson has completed seven innings twice in his two-year major league career.
