Cubs give ball to Hendricks for playoff prep start vs. Pirates

The two pitchers scheduled to face each other Wednesday in Pittsburgh -- Chicago Cubs right-hander Kyle Hendricks and Pirates right-hander Trevor Williams -- have a lot on the line, but for very different reasons.

Hendricks (6-4, 2.93 ERA) is probably making his final start before the Cubs (32-23) enter the playoffs. Chicago clinched a postseason berth Tuesday when Washington swept Philadelphia in a doubleheader despite the Cubs' 3-2 loss to Pittsburgh.

"This is the goal, obviously," Hendricks said of prepping himself for the playoffs, something he seemed to be right on track in doing his last time out.
