Kyle Hendricks' second complete game of his major-league career earned him Saturday's Superhero in a landslide.

Movement factor... nasty.

Writer's Note: The daily selections of the three Heroes and three Goats are based solely on the top three and bottom three WPA scores for the game. The selections are not based on my subjective opinion.

THE THREE HEROES:

  • Superhero - Kyle Hendricks (.330). His Game Score of 80 on Saturday was the second-best in his career, second only to his other complete game on May 21, 2015.
  • Hero - Jason Heyward (.102). Please tell me that this is the start of good things to come for him. Lie to me if you have to.
  • Sidekick - Ben Zobrist (.098). He's hitting .463 in his last 10 games with an on-base percentage of .511.

THE THREE GOATS:

  • Billy Goat - Kris Bryant (-.037). Another tough-luck Billy Goat; the first-inning liner into the shift was all it took to end up on the top step.
  • Goat - Anthony Rizzo (-.036). He probably would have ended up lower on the podium had he not been caught stealing in the third.
  • Kid - Jorge Soler (-.026). Well, at least when he struck out looking in this game the pitch was actually in the strike zone.

RANKINGS THROUGH GAME 47: Zobrist finds himself just outside of the plus-10 club and Heyward takes what is hopefully the first step of a long climb back to even ground.
