Kyle Hendricks worked five innings of one-run ball Sunday in a loss to the Pirates.

Josh Harrison delivered that run with a solo shot in the top of the first inning. Hendricks mostly settled in from there, but the Cubs' bullpen was not up to the task in this one -- and neither was the Cubs' offense -- as the Pirates went on to win 7-1. Hendricks is 4-5 on the year with a 3.48 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, and 61/19 K/BB ratio in 77 2/3 innings. He'll face the rival Cardinals next.

Kyle Hendricks yielded five runs in five innings Tuesday in a loss to the Phillies.

It's the first time this year that he's allowed more than four runs, and he had given up four earned runs only once. Hendricks isn't the sexiest of starters, but the ERA will be good, the WHIP will be great and the wins should come. That he's just 4-5 now is largely because the Cubs have struggled to score for him. They've scored exactly one run in six of his 12 starts.
Jun 5 - 11:37 PM

Kyle Hendricks surrendered two runs over five innings and was charged with a loss to the Pirates on Wednesday.

He served up a solo home run to Josh Harrison in the first inning and then gave up another run on a sacrifice fly by Gregory Polanco in the second. He wasn't fooling anyone as he managed just one strikeout on the evening. He falls to 4-4 with a fine 3.19 ERA and 1.06 WHIP through 11 starts. He will climb the bump to face the Phillies on Tuesday.
May 30 - 10:31 PM

Kyle Hendricks tossed seven innings of one-run ball in the Cubs' 6-2 victory over the Giants on Friday.

Hendricks served up a solo home run to Gorkys Hernandez in the fourth inning, but that was the only run and one of just two hits he gave up on the day. The right-hander walked a pair and struck out seven, needing just 88 pitches to navigate through his seven frames. The excellent showing dropped Hendricks' ERA for the season down to 3.16. He will go up against the Pirates in Pittsburgh when he next toes the slab.
May 25 - 5:51 PM

Kyle Hendricks wasn't sharp in a no-decision against the Reds on Saturday, giving up four runs (three earned) on six hits over his five-plus innings of work.

On the plus side for fantasy owners, Hendricks did fan six while issuing only two walks on the afternoon. The Reds pushed across single runs in the first and fourth innings, then broke it open with a pair in the sixth. Hendricks will look to get back in the win column when he brings a 3.40 ERA and 1.08 WHIP into Friday's start against the Giants.
May 19 - 4:54 PM

Kyle Hendricks allowed four runs -- three earned -- over six innings in a loss to the White Sox on Sunday.

Hendricks wasn't awful, giving up six hits without walking anyone and striking out six, but some well-timed hits did him in. It was actually the opposite story of opposing starter Lucas Giolito, who didn't know where it was going but who never gave up the big hit in keeping the Cubs quiet offensively. Hendricks fell to 3-3 with the loss, owning a strong 3.20 ERA and 1.03 WHIP in his eight starts. He'll try to get back in the win column Saturday against the Reds.
May 13 - 6:35 PM

Kyle Hendricks scattered two runs on six hits over eight innings Monday in a win over the Marlins.

Hendricks issued zero walks and struck out three, needing just 98 pitches to complete eight frames behind a big Chicago lead. The runs against him came on a groundout in the fifth inning and a Cameron Maybin RBI single in the top of the seventh. Hendricks will carry a 3.02 ERA and 1.03 WHIP into his next start at home against the White Sox.
May 7 - 11:08 PM

Kyle Hendricks allowed three runs over 7 2/3 innings Tuesday in a loss to the Rockies.

With a stiff wind blowing out to center, Hendricks gave up homers to the first two batters he faced in the first and then one more to Nolan Arenado in the fourth. He didn't do much else wrong, allowing just one other hit in the game. The Cubs really should have given him more support in these conditions.
May 1 - 11:01 PM

Kyle Hendricks was dominant in Thursday's victory over the Brewers, scattering four hits over seven shutout innings.

The right-hander punched out five on the night and didn't walk a batter. He needed to be every bit as good too, as Chase Anderson gave up just one run on the other side of the diamond. With the victory, Hendricks improves to 2-1 with a 3.10 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 24/7 K/BB ratio through 29 innings on the season. He'll try to replicate this fine effort when he does battle against the Rockies on Tuesday.
Apr 26 - 10:58 PM

Kyle Hendricks allowed three earned runs, five hits and no walks with six strikeouts over five innings in a win at Colorado on Friday.

Hendricks threw just 57 of his 95 pitches for strikes, and he hit one batter with a pitch. However, it was good enough to qualify for his first victory of 2018, helped out by plenty of run support. He'll look to piece together a win streak when he toes the slab at Wrigley Field on Thursday against the Brewers. He was 1-1 with a 4.18 ERA with 26 strikeouts over 28 innings in five outings against Milwaukee in 2017.
Apr 21 - 12:31 AM

Kyle Hendricks pitched six innings of two-run ball Thursday in a loss to the Pirates.

The runs came on solo homers from Gregory Polanco and Adam Frazier. Hendricks struck out seven, which in one more K than he had in his first two starts combined. He's still winless despite a 3.71 ERA in three turns.
Apr 12 - 5:43 PM

Kyle Hendricks yielded four runs over five innings Friday in a no-decision to the Brewers.

The fifth inning was one to forget for Hendricks, as he gave up two-run homers to both Eric Thames and Travis Shaw. He struck out just one batter in the loss and had only five swinging strikes in his 84 pitches. He’ll try to improve in his next outing against the Pirates next week.
Apr 7 - 1:26 AM

Kyle Hendricks pitched well in a no-decision against the Marlins on Friday, surrendering just one run on four hits over his six innings of work.

The right-hander walked three and struck out five on the night. The only blemish against him was an RBI single by Starlin Castro in the third inning. While he pitched well enough to win, the Cubs' offense was unable to provide the requisite run support. He'll try to get in the win column on Thursday when he does battle against the Brewers in Milwaukee.
Mar 31 - 12:39 AM

Kyle Hendricks allowed just one hit over four scoreless innings Sunday in his final Cactus League start against the Royals.

Hendricks was super sharp in his last tuneup before the regular season, walking two while striking out two as well. The good day lowered his spring ERA to 2.37. He seems ready for the games to count.
