Just like the beginning of the 2020 MLB season, Kyle Hendricks will make the Game 1 start for the Cubs against the Marlins in the Wild Card round series Wednesday at Wrigley Field. Yu Darvish, who pitched Friday night against the White Sox, will start Game 2 on Thursday.
Hendricks will go Game 1 for the Cubs followed by Darvish at Game 2. David Ross says, "I feel like I have two aces."
