Game 3: Kyle Allows No Runs

In the third game of the World Series, a 1-0 win for Cleveland over the Cubs in Chicago, Kyle Hendricks ‘12 had something of a rocky outing, at least by his standards. Before he was pulled with the bases loaded in the fifth inning, the Indians had recorded six hits against him (he gave up only two hits in each of his two starts against the Dodgers), but no runs. Justin Grimm came in and induced an inning-ending double play, getting Kyle out of the inning with no runs. Kyle appeared somewhat tense, and he did not have his usual pinpoint control: he gave up two walks and threw 85 pitches in four and a third innings (in his previous outing against the Dodgers, he threw 88 pitches over seven and a third). In the postseason, Kyle has now pitched 17 innings without giving up an earned run.

Cleveland leads the Series 2-1. Go Cubs Go!

Addendum: The Times reports on Kyle’s range of skills:

There was nothing dicey about the Cubs’ defense, which during the regular season was rated the best in baseball according to many metrics… Hendricks helped himself twice: picking Lindor off first and making a slick scoop of Russell’s relay throw on an attempted double play in the fourth. If Hendricks had not, Lindor surely would have raced home from third.

Seems like Kyle was well schooled in the fundamentals while in Hanover. He also picked a man off first in the second game against the Dodgers.

Addendum: If Cubs manager Joe Maddon keeps to his current rotation, Kyle would pitch in Cleveland in Game 7, if there is one.
