Hendricks sparkles, Cubs edge Twins 1-0 for 5th straight win

CHICAGO (AP) Kyle Hendricks tossed eight innings of three-hit, shutout ball to outduel Rich Hill, and the Chicago Cubs edged the Minnesota Twins 1-0 on Friday night for their fifth straight win.

Hendricks stuck out 10 and walked one before Jeremy Jeffress worked around two walks in the ninth for his eighth save. After 104 pitches - including 73 strikes - Hendricks narrowly missed his fifth career shutout and his second this season.

The right-hander had pinpoint fastball command to get ahead in counts. Then Hendricks was able to mix in a much-improved curve to spin his way to another sparkling outing as the first-place Cubs moved 11 games over .500 (31-20) for the first time in the pandemic-shortened season.
