CLEVELAND — Yu Darvish and Tyler Chatwood were allowed to remain in Chicago to prepare for their starts Thursday and Friday against the National League Central rival Milwaukee Brewers.

In the meantime, Kyle Hendricks performed the latest mastery by a Chicago Cubs rotation that continues to pitch with precision and take pressure off the rest of the team.

Hendricks, pitching at Progressive Field for the first time since Game 7 of the 2016 World Series, limited the Cleveland Indians to one run in six innings with a plethora of changeups and sharp curves Wednesday night as the Cubs won 7-2 to complete a two-game sweep.

Hendricks didn’t walk a batter for the third time in four starts, and this marked his 33rd consecutive start with two walks or fewer since April 7, 2019 — the longest streak by a Cubs pitcher since Bill Hands did it in 37 consecutive starts from Sept. 11, 1967, to April 13, 1969.
