Hendricks notched his first complete game and shutout in his last start, and finally got a win, holding the Padres to five hits in a 3-0 victory. The key was his ability to locate his fastball. Hendricks is 0-1 in three home starts.

Arrieta has posted quality starts in his last three outings, but wasn't happy with his last start vs. the D-backs when he gave up three earned runs over six innings. Maybe being back at Wrigley will help. He has a 2.41 ERA in five home starts.

Hammel made a late adjustment in his last start vs. D-backs, who were jumping on his first pitch. He did not give up a hit after the third inning, but it was too late and he took the loss. He's 1-3 with a 4.99 ERA in eight career games vs. Royals.
