The Chicago Cubs tonight close out a 10-day, nine-game trip with the rubber match of a three-game set against the Boston Red Sox. Chicago lost Friday’s series opener, 5-4, before yesterday erasing an early 3-0 deficit to win 7-4 and even up the set. Anthony Rizzo, Miguel Montero and Ben Zobrist all homered while Kyle Schwarber knocked in the game-winning run with a seventh-inning single and John Lackey (6.0 IP, 4 R) picked up his second win of the year.

Hendricks makes his fifth start of the 2017 season and third on the road. He has fanned 16 batters while walking nine in his first four outings. HE also has limited righties to a .227 average (10-for-44) and lefties to a .231 mark (9-for-39).
