    Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks strikes out eight in loss

    Cubs starting pitcher Kyle Hendricks (7-7) struck out eight, but gave up three runs on four hits over six innings in a loss to the Brewers on Wednesday. This was a tough one for Hendricks, who pitched very well and very efficiently -- he threw just 78 pitches while going into the seventh inning -- but was sunk by bad luck and bad bullpen work. It's been an up-and-down season, but Hendricks has shown much-improved bat-missing abilities while retaining his strong control, offering plenty of promise for the long term. In the nearer future, he'll face the Royals on Monday.

    Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks knocked out early in no-decision

    Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks received plenty of run support Thursday in Pittsburgh, but did not perform well enough to earn a second straight win. In fact, he did not perform well enough to win the rest of the year. Hendricks went only three innings, surrendering six hits and four earned runs. He fanned five and hit a batter in the no-decision. After a three-start stretch in which he managed to avoid giving up the long ball, Hendricks promptly surrendered three round-trippers over the second and third innings. The only saving grace was that two were of the solo variety, but the homers and a hit batsman all contributed to him getting pulled after only 63 pitches. The pitch count was the second-lowest total of the season for Hendricks in a start, and his exit after three frames was the quickest he'd been yanked in 2015. One somewhat surprising positive for Hendricks coming out of this abbreviated appearance was the absence of free passes, the first time since a July 10 start against the White Sox that he managed to not give up at least one walk.
