Tuesday night was a reminder that Kyle Hendricks' better days may be behind him as the veteran Chicago Cubs starting pitcher was tagged for 7 runs in 4.1 innings pitched. Despite Hendricks' continued struggles, the Cubs were in a position to win the game the ninth before Adbert Alzolay blew his third save on the young season. The Cubs lost 12-11 in 11 innings and will try and take the series on Wednesday afternoon.

Probable starting pitchers

  • Rookie starting pitcher Jordan Wicks gets the nod in the series finale against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday afternoon. With Jameson Taillon expected to get the start for the Cubs on Thursday night when they return to Wrigley Field, Wednesday is an important outing for Wicks as he looks to solidify his spot in the starting rotation. Ideally, Wicks is able to go six innings on Wednesday after the Cubs' bullpen has been taxed over the course of the past five games.
  • Second-year starting pitcher Brandon Pfaadt is on the bump for the Diamondbacks. After Pfaady impressed during his first season in the Diamondbacks' rotation last season, the right-hander has struggled to open the 2024 campaign. Pfaadt has allowed 12 runs in his 3 starts this season.
