Kyle Hendricks is back in command in his best start of the season — a needed lift for a Chicago Cubs rotation that has failed to build positive momentum



Before Tuesday’s start, part of Hendricks’ struggles stemmed from consistently missing bats. Hitters made too much contact in the zone, and when they did connect, they barreled the ball for damage. Harnessing better fastball command is key for any pitcher and especially for Hendricks, who at his best uses his fastball so well around the zone, which helps play up his secondary pitches.
