ATLANTA -- Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez wanted both Tim Hudson and Brandon Beachy to make their next starts in the postseason.
But after Tuesday night's 7-1 loss against the Phillies and the Cardinals' win over the Astros forged a National League Wild Card tie, Gonzalez will use Hudson in Wednesday night's regular-season finale.
If the Braves and Cards finish Wednesday with identical records, a one-game playoff will be played in St. Louis on Thursday at 8:07 p.m. ET. Beachy would start that game for Atlanta.
