Analysis: Hendricks became the first Cub in nearly 80 years to lead the majors in ERA (2.13) last season but took the mound on Tuesday with the number at 6.19. It dropped to 4.50. ''It's just one start,'' Hendricks said. ''It's not a `back' thing. I'm not in the zone, dialed in like I was last year. That was a completely different feeling and sensation (but) felt a lot better. It's more on track.''

The right-hander allowed four runs - two in the first inning - and five hits while striking out six and walking one over six innings. Analysis: Hendricks, who led the majors with a 2.13 ERA last year, gave up a leadoff home run to Jonathan Villar. ''Once the game started going, I started to find my groove a little bit,'' Hendricks said. ''By the fifth inning, it was pretty good. The sixth was really good. I just needed to get into a groove.'' He'll face the Pirates on Friday, and went 3-0 with a 0.47 ERA while striking out 21 and walking one over 19 innings against them last year.
