Colorado has recorded 17.0 Runs + Hits + Errors per game over its last 10 games and 18.6 over its last five.

Following a 16-5 drubbing of the Colorado Rockies to open a 3-game series, the Chicago Cubs fell out of sync the next night and only put two runs on the board in a 5-2 defeat.

Darvish took the mound for the Cubs opposite lefty Tyler Anderson.

The sequence delayed the game briefly after Arenado struck out and Baez shouted to the outfielders about the difference it makes when they don't know the signs.

For the second straight night the Cubs grabbed a quick lead. Last year, Hendricks was a tough-luck loser at Coors, allowing just two earned runs and four hits in 6.1 innings of a 3-0 defeat while walking two and striking out seven.

The Cubs have hit 13 home runs in their last 10 games.

Bryant's seventh HBP of the season came in the top of the first Sunday, with two outs and no one on against Rockies' starter German Marquez, and brought a very scary moment. Darvish finished with five runs allowed on five hits and four walks in 4 2/3 innings. On paper, this was a game in which the Cubs had a major advantage. Bote, who grew up in Longmont, approximately 28 miles from Coors Field, doubled in his first at-bat and went 1-for-3.

Marquez is 1-1 with a 4.34 ERA in four starts, three of which the Rockies have won.

The Braves jumped on him early and often, with Ozzie Albies leading off the game with a dinger.

The rally was particularly welcome for the Rockies, since they are last in the National League with a.218 average and next to last with a.293 on-base percentage and.218 average with runners in scoring position. They've lost 5.3 units for moneyline bettors in the season's early going, despite having gained 0.8 units ATS. Marquez is 1-0, 0.82 in two starts against the Cubs. Chicago pounded the Rockies in game one and I expected the Rockies to get one back in this one. The Cubs wound up scoring three runs in the first inning, one in the second and two in the third to chase Marquez with those six runs on eight hits over 3.1 innings. I think he's throwing the ball great. Jose Quintana has a 8.16 ERA and a 1.81 WHIP ion the year so far and the Rockies are certainly capable of hanging a big number on him, especially at home and especially with Arenado back in the lineup. Almora led off with a bloop single to center, Javier Baez followed with a single and Contreras drove them in with a two-out double that just missed being a home run.
