Kyle Hendricks, Cubs Beats Rout Steelers – Uh, Pirates – 21-0 – NBC Chicago


Hendricks, Cubs beat Steelers – er, Pirates – 21-0 Originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

By the time it ended at Wrigley Field on Saturday, Pirates outfielder Diego Castillo was pitching the eighth inning.

In fact, this one was over long before that – the Cubs took out the bats for a record-breaking performance to back up a near-perfect Kyle Hendricks in a 21-0 victory over the Pirates.

It was the biggest margin of victory for the Cubs in a shutout in the “modern” (post-1900) era, surpassing a 19-0 victory in 1969 over the Padres.

Nico Hoerner had four hits and Seiya Suzuki, Willson Contreras, Ian Happ and Alfonso Rivas added three each on a 23-hit offense.

Hendricks (1-1) needed just 76 pitches to complete seven innings, allowing just two no-walk hits and striking out two.

It was the Cubs’ first “quality start” of the season and ended a four-game losing streak.
