Cubs' Hendricks seeking breakthrough vs. D-backs

Right-hander Kyle Hendricks will look for his first win of the season and try to continue Chicago's hot streak on the mound when the Cubs open a three-game series against the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday afternoon.

Chicago, which was off Thursday, has won seven of its past 10 games and is coming off a three-game road sweep of the Miami Marlins. The Cubs posted shutouts in the final two games of the set and have pitched 23 consecutive scoreless innings.

Hendricks (0-3, 5.40 ERA) has completed five innings only once in his three starts this season, that coming in his last outing when he took the loss in a 6-5 defeat to the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday. He allowed six hits and three runs (two earned) in five innings.
