Kyle Hendricks spun six shutout frames in Tuesday’s 1-0 victory over the Pirates.
Hendricks’ stuff was down again in this one, as he was sitting at 85 mph with his fastball and didn’t have much differential with a 79 mph changeup. He managed to do enough to keep the Pirates off balance, though, yielding just four hits while walking two and whiffing three. It’s a step in the right direction results-wise, but Hendricks still looks off. He’ll face the Phillies next.
