Unfortunately, even with a large sample size (111 plate appearances) the D-backs haven't fared well against Hudson. Still, that team slash of .229/.270/.286 is better than a lot of the pitchers faced on this road trip. Cody Ross leads the team in plate appearances with 29, and hasn't fared well; look for him to sit this game. Gerardo Parra has 8 plate appearances and has gone 3 for 5, with three singles and three walks, getting on base at a .750 clip. Kubel is 3 for 10 against Hudson. The Braves have posted similar numbers against Kennedy: .286/.365/.476, in 74 plate appearances. Although that seems significantly higher, if Cody Ross's .172/.172/.172 (yes, that's right) is removed, the numbers are basically identical, and the chances of Cody playing aren't real good, both because of the RHP and the history.
