Class was in session Friday as the Professor Kyle Hendricks pitched seven shut out innings walking two and striking out 11 while giving up only three hits on a very windy day.  Speaking of the wind, Kris Bryant was credited with a two RBI bloop double that fell between four different Diamondback fielders.  Anthony Rizzo then added an RBI on a triple hit into the LF corner, the 16th of his career.  KB scored on a wild pitch and Willson Contreras had an RBI single to continue his torrid start.  Brad Brach gave up the only Diamondbacks run and made it interesting but Pedro Strop ended the drama getting the last two outs on only nine pitches, eight strikes.  Stropy collected his second save of the season and Hendricks his first win.  Yu Darvish will face off against Zack Greinke today at 1:20 CST.
