Brewers' Brandon Woodruff to start 2nd straight opener

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Brandon Woodruff is stopping the Milwaukee Brewers' revolving door of opening-day starting pitchers.

Manager Craig Counsell says Woodruff will start the Brewers' season opener for a second straight year.

Woodruff will be facing Kenta Maeda when the Brewers host the Minnesota Twins on April 1.

Having the same pitcher start the season opener in back-to-back season is unusual by recent Brewers standards.

Milwaukee had a different pitcher start each of the last seven openers.
