League Championship Series, Game 2: Hendrickson and Ziga shine as Magpies win 7-1 to tie series

By Maggie Pye | 09 October | 24,448 comments

It was an all-lefty battle on the mound as the Magpies P.J. Hendrickson (18-6) took on the experienced Canadian Francis Drolet (14-6). The tone was set in the top of the 1st inning when Guillermo Daz took Drolets very first pitch and dispatched it 437 feet away into the bleachers.

Hendrickson was sensational, dominating the powerful Rockets lineup throughout, and eventually finishing with a line of 8.1 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 6 K. Drolet, meanwhile, was under constant pressure from the Magpies lineup, but the game was only made safe in the top of the 7th when the Magpies loaded the bases with only 1 out and plated 3 runs to take the score to 5-0 and force Drolet out of the game. Hendrickson finally gave up a run in the bottom of the 7th, but the Magpies kept the momentum going against the Rockets bullpen, Zigas home run giving the scoreline a lopsided look.
