Hendricks pitched 6.1 innings during Wednesday's 3-2 extra-inning loss to St. Louis, allowing two runs on eight hits with three strikeouts. He didn't factor into the decision.
Hendricks cruised through six innings but allowed two hits and a run in the seventh before departing. He would have been the loser if not for Eric Sogard's tying hit in the ninth. This was Hendricks' 12th quality start in his last 13 appearances. Interestingly enough, three of his four lowest strikeout totals this season have come against the Cardinals.
