Hendricks takes shutout into 9th, Cubs beat D-backs 5-1

PHOENIX (AP) Kyle Hendricks received a standing ovation from Chicago Cubs fans in Arizona for merely laying down a sacrifice bunt in the top of the ninth inning.

He earned all that applause away from home with the way he pitched on the mound.

Hendricks took a one-hit shutout into the ninth and the Cubs stifled the Arizona Diamondbacks in a 5-1 win Monday night to open their important three-game series.
