#Cubs Hendricks’ streak ends
Cubs pitcher Kyle Hendricks’ scoreless innings streak ended quickly Friday night. The right-hander entered with a 22 1/3-inning scoreless streak dating to the fourth inning, June 24, against the Dodgers, and it was over in the Braves’ first when Kelly Johnson hit a RBI single. It was the longest scoreless streak by a Cubs pitcher since Ryan Dempster’s 33-inning run in June-July 2012, and was the second-longest active streak behind the Dodgers Zack Greinke’s 35 2/3 stretch.
