#Cubs and Hendricks face Brewers
Kyle Hendricks starts on Sunday in the Cubs’ series finale against the Brewers at Wrigley Field. Hendricks leads the Majors with a 2.03 ERA while teammate Jon Lester is second with a 2.40 ERA. The last time pitchers from the same team finished with the top two ERAs in the Majors was in 2005, when the Astros’ Roger Clemens (1.87) and Andy Pettitte (2.39) did so. Hendricks has given up three or fewer earned runs in each of his last 20 starts dating to May 22 (1.59 ERA), the longest streak by any big league pitcher this season.
The regulars are back. Here’s the lineup:
