Watch All 81 Pitches Kyle Hendricks Needed to Beat the Cardinals (In Under 2-Minutes!)

Chicago Cubs

We’ve already gushed over Kyle Hendricks ridiculous performance this afternoon (an 81-pitch, complete-game shutout!), even though we didn’t yet have the full highlights of his overall performance. But Cubs Productions has since come through and delivered exactly that … and a little more.

In exactly a minute and a half, the Cubs have released all 81 pitches Hendricks needed to beat the Cardinals today, and it is an absolute joy to watch. So pop your headphones on or turn your volume up, sit back, and enjoy.

NOTE: I love how they refrained from adding a soundtrack to this one. The quiet thumping of the ball hitting Willson Contreras’ glove or bouncing softly off Cardinals bats is like music to my ears.
