The Professor will be in session shortly.
The Chicago Cubs are blessed with two aces on their staff in 2020 as Cubs manager David Ross announced on Tuesday that starting pitcher Kyle Hendricks will get the game one start against the Miami Marlins on Wednesday.
“I feel like I have two aces,” Ross said to the media.
For the season in 12 starts, he has a 6-5 record with an impressive 2.88 ERA, 64 strikeouts, and low 0.996 WHIP. In six home starts, he had a sparkling 1.85 ERA.
Yu Darvish will get the start in game two on Thursday.
He has a 8-3 record with a 2.01 ERA and 0.96 WHIP in 12 starts this season.
Ross shared that if the series went to a game three that veteran lefty Jon Lester would get the nod in the pressure-packed contest.
