Hendricks Betters Greinke as Cubs Beat D-Backs 4-2

Hendricks

This one had a familiar feel to it, it felt a lot like the game last night, you know, the one that ended poorly.  The result was different tonight, mainly because of the job Adam Warren, and Hector Rondon did out of the bullpen.  Kyle Hendricks was so very good tonight, and he was one out away from getting his team into the eighth inning.  The final line on Hendricks; 6.2 innings worked, giving up two runs on four hits while walking one, and striking out five,

His counterpart Zack Greinke didn’t fare so well as the Cubs jumped on him early, scoring three times in the first, and never looking back.  Anthony Rizzo, and Kris Bryant each had an RBI in the first, a single for Rizzo and a double for Bryant.  Miguel Montero pushed the Cubs lead to three with a sacrifice fly, and Zobrist smacked an RBI double in the fourth to close out the scoring.

Great chance for the Cubs to move to 5-1 on the season, and this road trip tomorrow as Jake Arrieta gets the ball.
