SAN DIEGO -- Kris Bryant hit a two-run home run in the first inning and Kyle Hendricks threw his first career complete game and shutout Thursday as the Cubs defeated the Padres, 3-0, before a crowd of 30,021 at Petco Park.
"When you pitch like that, you'll win a lot of baseball games," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. "He was in command of himself, in command of the game. It was really fun to watch."
