The Cubs rookie righthander could get some Rookie of the Year votes if he keeps this up.

I told you guys about Kyle Hendricks in spring training.

Yes, I understand completely the reasons he didn't make the Opening Day roster and I think he was called up at exactly the right time. And I do know he'll need to make adjustments once he faces a team for the second time, because they're surely going to do the same.

Hendricks had yet another outstanding start in an early-afternoon game in New York Monday, and he was given his fifth win by Anthony Rizzo's 28th home run in the eighth inning. Javier Baez added a monstrous two-run, upper-deck homer in the ninth inning and the Cubs defeated the Mets 4-1. They got out of New York with a series split, and won the season series from the Mets five games to two.
