Things to Take from This Game
1. Hendricks with a good outing.
Kyle Hendricks pitched 6 efficient, scoreless innings, giving up just one walk and three hits. He struck out six with lots of movement - if not always command - on all of his pitches. Other than a one-out double that was quickly pitched around, he wasn't in trouble at all. The defense also was flawless, save a bad route and awkward catch by Fowler.
2. The offense continues to struggle.
There isn't much to say about the offensive performance. Castro walked twice. Bryant had a hit and a walk. The scoring came from a no-doubt double by Szczur that scored Bryant. We loaded the bases, once, so there was that...
3. The bullpen delivered.
Rondon, Strop, and Motte each had convincing scoreless innings to preserve a 1-0 lead.
