Kyle Hendricks never gave up four home runs in his career. He allowed four nights for the first entry to Freeman, d’Arnaud, Adrianza and Heredia. pic.twitter.com/xl2VR9bpKx

The Cubs started the return with two home runs from Anthony Rizzo, but were 7-3 early in the game.
Kyle Hendricks made 74 IPs after 4 pitches: 7 H, 7 R / ER, 3 BB, 2 K, 4 HR. Most of the damage has been to 35 pitches, 6 runs and 4 draws in the first place. At least he kept the bullring for a long night.
Alec Mills took the Cubs down, 7-3.

Hendricks is one of the de facto team in Chicago after Yu Darvish negotiated this season. Chicago will need more from this year’s round in the starting lineup given the struggles the runners have at the base and on the scoring point. Consider a missed opportunity for Hendricks to climb his tip in a big place.
A start won’t hurt, but Chicago will likely be locked into those types of games during the 2021 season.
