Jake Woodford pitched five innings and allowed six hits, three runs, and a walk while striking out four in a 3-2 loss to the Cubs on Sunday.
Woodford led 2-1 entering the fifth inning but was charged with a pair of runs in the bottom of the fifth that ultimately proved to be the difference in the game. The 24-year-old pitched mostly out of relief this season but did a solid job in September after joining the starting rotation. He finishes the season with a 3.99 ERA and 1.34 WHIP and will compete for a spot in the starting rotation next spring.
Jake Woodford allowed six hits, two runs, and two walks while striking out just one across 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Cubs on Sunday afternoon.
Woodford was headed for a loss, trailing 2-1 in the later innings, before St. Louis tied the game in the eighth inning and then went ahead in the ninth inning to win their 16th consecutive game. Woodford has been a solid option in the Cardinals rotation over the past few weeks and will make his final start of the season next weekend against these same Cubs.
Cardinals starter Jake Woodford pitched exceptionally well on Tuesday, allowing just two hits and a walk while striking out five across five scoreless innings in a 2-1 win over the Brewers.
Woodford picked up just his third win of the season with a solid performance, going toe-to-toe with Brandon Woodruff while helping the Cardinals win their 10th consecutive game. Woodford now sports a 3.92 ERA and 1.33 WHIP overall this season. He'll face the Cubs on Sunday at Wrigley Field.
Jake Woodford started for St. Louis against the Mets on Tuesday, pitching four innings (61 pitches) while surrendering four hits, two runs, and two walks and also failing to record a strikeout.
After spending the majority of the season as a middle reliever, Woodford simply isn't stretched out enough to handle a starter's workload, as he has been consistently pitching between three and five innings per start. With a 4.30 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, low strikeout totals, and an inability to pitch deep into games, Woodford offers virtually no fantasy value.
Jake Woodford pitched effectively over four innings on Thursday afternoon, limiting the Dodgers to three hits, a run, and two walks while striking out three in a no-decision.
A two-on, two-out RBI single by Trea Turner in the third inning was the only damage Woodford allowed. The 24-year-old owns a 4.28 ERA and 1.39 WHIP on the season, mostly out of the bullpen. With that said, he has not yet completed six innings in a start this season. He'll draw a start against the Mets next week and likely isn't stretched out enough to be considered a viable fantasy option.
