Hendricks struck out five, ending the game with a 5.40 ERA and 1.40 WHIP on the season.
Oct. 13 12:37 AM PT1:37 AM MT2:37 AM CT3:37 AM ET3:37 ET7:37 GMT15:37 12:37 AM MST2:37 AM EST3:07 AM VEN11:37 UAE2:37 AM CT-Kyle Hendricks allowed four runs on nine hits and one walk in 4.0 innings as the Chicago Cubs defeated the Washington Nationals 9-8 on Thursday. Hendricks struck out seven, ending the game with a 3.27 ERA and 1.36 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Hendricks was nearly as dominant as his Game 1 performance, especially during a four-run second inning in which he served up a pair of homers. The right-hander is lined up to pitch Game 3 of Chicago's NLCS rematch with a Dodgers team he spun 7 1/3 scoreless innings against in last year's historic Game 6 at Wrigley Field.
Oct. 7 9:52 PM PT10:52 PM MT11:52 PM CT12:52 AM ET0:52 ET4:52 GMT12:52 9:52 PM MST11:52 PM EST12:22 AM VEN8:52 UAE11:52 PM CT-Kyle Hendricks improved to 1-0, allowing two hits and three walks over 7.0 scoreless innings, as the Chicago Cubs defeated the Washington Nationals 3-0 on Friday. Hendricks struck out six, ending the game with a 0.00 ERA and 0.71 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Hendricks was at his craftiest in outdueling Stephen Strasburg on a night in which the Washington All-Star was virtually untouchable for the majority of his stint. The cerebral right-hander may not be one of the Cubs' flashiest starters, but he's among the most reliable - especially come playoff time. He's now yielded one earned run or less in five straight postseason starts, a stretch in which he's 2-1 with a sparkling 0.63 ERA.
Oct. 4 11:46 AM PT12:46 PM MT1:46 PM CT2:46 PM ET14:46 ET18:46 GMT2:46 11:46 AM MST1:46 PM EST2:16 PM VEN22:46 UAE1:46 PM CT-Cubs manager Joe Maddon says Hendricks will start Game 1 of the NL Division Series against Washington on Friday.

Sep. 1 1:12 AM PT2:12 AM MT3:12 AM CT4:12 AM ET4:12 ET8:12 GMT16:12 1:12 AM MST3:12 AM EST3:42 AM VEN12:12 UAE3:12 AM CT-Kyle Hendricks improved to 6-4, allowing two runs - one earned - on five hits and three walks in 6.2 innings, as the Chicago Cubs defeated the Atlanta Braves 6-2 on Thursday. Hendricks struck out five, ending the game with a 3.32 ERA and 1.24 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Hendricks went three months and eight starts between wins before notching one in Philadelphia last Saturday, but he's now posted two victories in a row while maintaining his usual solid form. The right-hander sports a 2.31 ERA in eight starts since returning from a hand injury in late July, while yielding two runs or less in six of those outings.
Aug. 27 11:17 PM PT12:17 AM MT1:17 AM CT2:17 AM ET2:17 ET6:17 GMT14:17 11:17 PM MST1:17 AM EST1:47 AM VEN10:17 UAE1:17 AM CT-Kyle Hendricks improved to 5-4, allowing two runs on six hits in 7.0 innings, as the Chicago Cubs defeated the Philadelphia Phillies 17-2 on Saturday. Hendricks struck out eight, ending the game with a 3.45 ERA and 1.24 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Plagued by a lack of run support in most of his recent starts, Hendricks got plenty on this night to earn a long-overdue first victory since May 24. The dependable righty has been very solid since returning from a hand injury in late July, posting a 2.48 ERA over seven starts.
Aug. 21 9:20 PM PT10:20 PM MT11:20 PM CT12:20 AM ET0:20 ET4:20 GMT12:20 9:20 PM MST11:20 PM EST11:50 PM VEN8:20 UAE11:20 PM CT-Kyle Hendricks allowed three runs on six hits and two walks in 6.0 innings as the Chicago Cubs defeated the Toronto Blue Jays 6-5 on Sunday. Hendricks struck out six, ending the game with a 3.52 ERA and 1.27 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: This wasn't one of Hendricks' best efforts, and he's still yet to get a win in six starts since returning from a hand injury in late July. The 2016 MLB ERA leader has still pitched well overall since coming back, recording a 2.45 ERA with 30 strikeouts in 33 innings. He should have a chance to end his drought in Saturday's road matchup with the lowly Phillies.
Aug. 16 9:24 AM PT10:24 AM MT11:24 AM CT12:24 PM ET12:24 ET16:24 GMT0:24 9:24 AM MST11:24 AM EST11:54 AM VEN20:24 UAE11:24 AM CT-Kyle Hendricks allowed five hits and four walks without giving up a run in 6.0 innings as the Chicago Cubs lost to the Cincinnati Reds 2-1 on Tuesday. Hendricks struck out six, ending the game with a 3.45 ERA and 1.26 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Despite allowing no runs for the first time since May 5, Hendricks was a little shaky at times, as he walked four. He has a 2.00 ERA with a 1.41 WHIP and 24 strikeouts in 27 innings over five starts since coming off the DL. He next faces the Blue Jays on Sunday, and in three interleague starts this season, the right-hander has a 1.72 ERA and 1.40 WHIP without a decision.
Aug. 9 5:40 PM PT6:40 PM MT7:40 PM CT8:40 PM ET20:40 ET0:40 GMT8:40 5:40 PM MST7:40 PM EST8:10 PM VEN4:40 UAE (+1)7:40 PM CT-Kyle Hendricks allowed one run on five hits and three walks in 4.2 innings as the Chicago Cubs lost to the San Francisco Giants 3-1 on Wednesday. Hendricks struck out five, ending the game with a 3.70 ERA and 1.25 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Hendricks has a 2.57 ERA in four starts since coming off the DL, but he's 0-1 over that stretch as the Cubs have scored a total of four runs for him.
Aug. 4 2:49 PM PT3:49 PM MT4:49 PM CT5:49 PM ET17:49 ET21:49 GMT5:49 2:49 PM MST4:49 PM EST5:19 PM VEN1:49 UAE (+1)4:49 PM CT-Kyle Hendricks fell to 4-4, allowing three runs on five hits and two walks in 7.0 innings, as the Chicago Cubs lost to the Washington Nationals 4-2 on Friday. Hendricks struck out five, ending the game with a 3.81 ERA and 1.22 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Hendricks has a 2.76 ERA in three starts since coming off the DL, but he's 0-1 over that stretch as the Cubs have scored a total of three runs for him.
July 29 8:37 PM PT9:37 PM MT10:37 PM CT11:37 PM ET23:37 ET3:37 GMT11:37 8:37 PM MST10:37 PM EST11:07 PM VEN7:37 UAE (+1)10:37 PM CT-Kyle Hendricks allowed one run on six hits in 5.0 innings as the Chicago Cubs defeated the Milwaukee Brewers 2-1 on Saturday.

Hendricks struck out five, ending the game with a 3.95 ERA and 1.24 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Hendicks made his first start since June 4 following a stint on the disabled list with right hand tendinitis.
June 8 2:31 PM PT3:31 PM MT4:31 PM CT5:31 PM ET17:31 ET21:31 GMT5:31 2:31 PM MST4:31 PM EST5:01 PM VEN1:31 UAE (+1)4:31 PM CT-Hendricks has been activated from the disabled list and will start the Cubs' series opener with the White Sox on Monday.
Analysis: Lingering tendinitis in his right hand had kept Hendricks on the DL since June 5, but the 2016 MLB ERA leader showed he's ready to go by tossing five perfect innings in a rehab start for Double-A Tennessee last Monday. He did throw just 63 pitches, so there's a chance he'll been on some sort of limit in his return.
June 5 10:16 AM PT11:16 AM MT12:16 PM CT1:16 PM ET13:16 ET17:16 GMT1:16 10:16 AM MST12:16 PM EST12:46 PM VEN21:16 UAE12:16 PM CT-Kyle Hendricks allowed four runs on four hits and three walks in 4.0 innings as the Chicago Cubs defeated the St. Louis Cardinals 7-6 on Sunday. Hendricks struck out three, ending the game with a 4.09 ERA and 1.20 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Hendricks was lifted for a pinch hitter in the Cubs' five-run fourth after giving up four runs in the top half of the inning. He has now allowed nine runs over nine innings in his last two games after yielding just nine runs over 36.2 innings in his previous six starts. He makes his next start Friday against the Rockies, whom he limited to three runs over 6.1 innings on May 10.
May 30 11:32 AM PT12:32 PM MT1:32 PM CT2:32 PM ET14:32 ET18:32 GMT2:32 11:32 AM MST1:32 PM EST2:02 PM VEN22:32 UAE1:32 PM CT-Kyle Hendricks fell to 4-3, allowing five runs on six hits in 5.0 innings, as the Chicago Cubs lost to the San Diego Padres 5-2 on Monday. Hendricks struck out five, ending the game with a 3.75 ERA and 1.16 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Hendricks retired his first 10 batters before allowing seven of his final 11 to reach. He had gone 3-1 with a 1.96 ERA and 1.06 WHIP over his previous six starts and next takes the ball Sunday against the Cardinals for his first matchup with St. Louis this season. In his final two starts versus the Redbirds in 2016, Hendricks compiled a 1.80 ERA and 0.53 WHIP while striking out 19 over 15 innings.
May 25 9:25 AM PT10:25 AM MT11:25 AM CT12:25 PM ET12:25 ET16:25 GMT0:25 9:25 AM MST11:25 AM EST11:55 AM VEN20:25 UAE11:25 AM CT-Kyle Hendricks improved to 4-2, allowing two runs on five hits in 7.0 innings, as the Chicago Cubs defeated the San Francisco Giants 5-4 on Wednesday.

May 18 8:23 AM PT9:23 AM MT10:23 AM CT11:23 AM ET11:23 ET15:23 GMT23:23 8:23 AM MST10:23 AM EST10:53 AM VEN19:23 UAE10:23 AM CT-Kyle Hendricks improved to 3-2, allowing two runs on six hits and two walks in 6.0 innings, as the Chicago Cubs defeated the Cincinnati Reds 7-5 on Wednesday. Hendricks struck out four, ending the game with a 3.35 ERA and 1.23 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Hendricks improved to 2-1 with a 1.82 ERA in his last five starts after going 1-1 with a 6.19 ERA in his first three outings. It's a very encouraging sign for the Cubs after the wiry right-hander blossomed into one of their most dependable starters last year.
May 10 4:45 PM PT5:45 PM MT6:45 PM CT7:45 PM ET19:45 ET23:45 GMT7:45 4:45 PM MST6:45 PM EST7:15 PM VEN3:45 UAE (+1)6:45 PM CT-Kyle Hendricks fell to 2-2, allowing three runs - two earned - on four hits and two walks in 6.1 innings, as the Chicago Cubs lost to the Colorado Rockies 3-0 on Wednesday. Hendricks struck out seven, ending the game with a 3.40 ERA and 1.21 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Hendricks pitched well before running into a little trouble in the seventh inning, as his ERA lowered to 1.52 over his last four starts. He next takes the ball Wednesday against the Reds, and is 2-0 with a 2.01 ERA in four starts versus Cincinnati at Wrigley Field.
May 5 3:39 PM PT4:39 PM MT5:39 PM CT6:39 PM ET18:39 ET22:39 GMT6:39 3:39 PM MST5:39 PM EST6:09 PM VEN2:39 UAE (+1)5:39 PM CT-Kyle Hendricks allowed six hits and two walks without giving up a run in 5.1 innings as the Chicago Cubs lost to the New York Yankees 3-2 on Friday. Hendricks struck out five, ending the game with a 3.51 ERA and 1.26 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Hendricks was in line for the win until Brett Gardner put the Yankees ahead with a three-run homer with two outs in the ninth. The right-hander is 1-0 with a 1.04 ERA in his last three starts after going 1-1 with a 6.19 ERA in his first three.
May 1 6:52 AM PT7:52 AM MT8:52 AM CT9:52 AM ET9:52 ET13:52 GMT21:52 6:52 AM MST8:52 AM EST9:22 AM VEN17:52 UAE8:52 AM CT-Hendricks allowed two runs on three hits and three walks in 6 innings as the Chicago Cubs lost to the Boston Red Sox 6-2 on Sunday.
Analysis: Hendricks struck out six, ending the game with a 4.18 ERA and 1.21 WHIP on the season. After giving up a first-inning homer Hendricks was solid, so maybe he is turning the corner after some early issues that includes a lack of velocity.
Apr. 26 9:48 PM PT10:48 PM MT11:48 PM CT12:48 AM ET0:48 ET4:48 GMT12:48 9:48 PM MST11:48 PM EST12:18 AM VEN8:48 UAE11:48 PM CT-Hendricks allowed four hits, struck out three and walked two over six innings in Tuesday's 1-0 win at Pittsburgh in easily his best performance of the young season for the defending World Series champions.
Analysis: Hendricks became the first Cub in nearly 80 years to lead the majors in ERA (2.13) last season but took the mound on Tuesday with the number at 6.19. It dropped to 4.50. ''It's just one start,'' Hendricks said. ''It's not a `back' thing. I'm not in the zone, dialed in like I was last year. That was a completely different feeling and sensation (but) felt a lot better. It's more on track.''
Apr. 19 6:35 PM PT7:35 PM MT8:35 PM CT9:35 PM ET21:35 ET1:35 GMT9:35 6:35 PM MST8:35 PM EST9:05 PM VEN5:35 UAE (+1)8:35 PM CT-The Cubs bailed Hendricks out Wednesday by scoring four times in the ninth inning to beat the Brewers 7-4.
Analysis: The reigning NL ERA champ is off to a shaky start. He's given up at least three earned runs in all three of his outings, something he did just six times in 30 starts last season.
Apr. 14 7:44 PM PT8:44 PM MT9:44 PM CT10:44 PM ET22:44 ET2:44 GMT10:44 7:44 PM MST9:44 PM EST10:14 PM VEN6:44 UAE (+1)9:44 PM CT-Hendricks lost at home to the Pirates on Friday, yielding three runs and six hits in five innings with two walks and three strikeouts.

Apr. 9 10:29 PM PT11:29 PM MT12:29 AM CT1:29 AM ET1:29 ET5:29 GMT13:29 10:29 PM MST12:29 AM EST12:59 AM VEN9:29 UAE12:29 AM CT-Pitching on eight days of rest thanks to weather delays during the Cubs' opening series in St. Louis, Hendricks was a little shaky out of the gate in Saturday's 11-6 win over the Brewers. The right-hander allowed four runs - two in the first inning - and five hits while striking out six and walking one over six innings.
Analysis: Hendricks, who led the majors with a 2.13 ERA last year, gave up a leadoff home run to Jonathan Villar. ''Once the game started going, I started to find my groove a little bit,'' Hendricks said. ''By the fifth inning, it was pretty good. The sixth was really good. I just needed to get into a groove.'' He'll face the Pirates on Friday, and went 3-0 with a 0.47 ERA while striking out 21 and walking one over 19 innings against them last year.
