Cubs @ Pirates: Hendricks vs Cole (Game 20)

CHC (11-8): RHP Kyle Hendricks (1-2, 6.19)  PIT (8-11): RHP Gerrit Cole (1-2, 4.70)  First pitch: 6:05pmCST Hendricks had another bad outing on Wednesday in Milwaukee, giving up 4 ER in 5 innings, with four strikeouts and four walks. This is not going to keep him in Cy Young conversations for very long--although with the Cubs offense (which now includes Heyward), he could still end up winning 20 games. Kyle was 2-0 with a 3.18 in three starts against the Pirates last year. Overall, they are 32-129 (.248) against him. Polanco is 8-19 and Harrison is 6-15, both with a HR.Tags: 2017...
