#Cubs Hendricks co-Player of the Week
Cubs pitcher Kyle Hendricks was named National League co-player of the week, sharing the honor with Ichiro Suzuki, who collected his 3,000th hit on Sunday. Hendricks was 2-0 with a 0.55 ERA in two starts last week.
The right-hander gave up one earned run over 16 1/3 innings in two games, striking out nine. Last Monday, Hendricks tossed his third career complete game and second career shutout in a 5-0 win over the Marlins. He threw a career-high 123 pitches in the outing. The right-hander followed that on Sunday with a win over the A’s, going 7 1/3 innings. He gave up three hits and held the A’s scoreless into the eighth inning before Marcus Semien hit a solo home run.
Hendricks’ 2.17 ERA is the second-lowest ERA among qualifying Major League pitchers this season.
