He also started its previous postseason game, helping the Cubs win in Cleveland in Game 7 for their first championship since 1908."Excited to get out there," Hendricks said Wednesday.

Michael A. Taylor brought his heroics from Game 4 of the National League Division Series into Game 5 against the Chicago Cubs.
