After 104 pitches - including 73 strikes - Hendricks narrowly missed his fifth career shutout and his second this season.Willson Contreras' sharp RBI single in the first accounted for the only run off the 40-year-old Hill, who walked the first two Cubs batters and then settled in on a clear, chilly night at Wrigley Field with the wind blowing in.Hendricks (6-4) retired 12 Twins hitters in a row during a stretch from the second until Josh Donaldson's bloop single with two outs in the sixth.The first-place Cubs' lead in the NL Central is five games over St. Louis, which swept a doubleheader from Pittsburgh.The Twins remained three games behind the first-place White Sox in the AL Central.Hill (2-2) allowed one run and three hits while walking two and striking out five in seven innings.
