Bryant hits Cubs' second long ball of afternoon

  • Wilmer Difo of the Washington Nationals looks up Monday night after sliding back into third base on a failed pickoff attempt by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the fourth inning. Washington came away with a 3-2 victory at home

The Rockies sent rookie outfielder Noel Cuevas - in full uniform and pushing a cart - on a coffee run prior to the game. They just posted the lowest team batting average in a single month in their franchise history throughout March and April (.222) and now have more strikeouts than hits through 31 games. Darvish is 0-2 with a 5.28 ERA, a 1.76 WHIP, 10 walks and 16 strikeouts over 15.1 innings in his last three starts.

The crowd of 40,077 was still finding its seats when Blackmon drove a 3-2 pitch over the wall in center for his 10th of the season.

Seeing the aggression and influx of power immediately to start the month of May is a great sign for the Rockies. "Nolan, obviously, had some big swings".

Arenado has hit five home runs against the Cubs this season, tied for the most ever by a Rockies player against the Cubs in a single season. And when they're not hitting, RBI chances go down as well.

"I don't think it's time to panic, by any means", said starter Chad Bettis, whose seven-inning, two-run performance went to waste Sunday.

There has always been a frustration surrounding this thought process and Gray.

Darvish alluded to an issue at times with pitch selection when talking with Japanese reporters after his session with Chicago media - in particular using two-seam fastballs when four-seamers might have worked better and the overall need to incorporate more off-speed stuff.




Gray finished seven strong innings in which he only allowed three hits and one walk while striking out six Chicago batters. He hit a three-homer in the first, a two-run shot in the second and a solo drive in the eighth. Beyond that, it was almost an impeccable outing for Gray, who needed a start of that caliber to get himself back on track.

Baez enjoyed batting against lefty pitching at home last season, slashing.358/.397/.679 in 58 such plate appearances (compared to his overall season line of.273/.317/.480).

The Rockies offense has slashed.221/.299/.379 on its way to 3.8 runs scored per game in 2018, including 3.7 runs per game over the team's last 10 games and 1.4 per game over the team's last five contests (2-3 SU).

Coming into Thursday, the Milwaukee Brewers were riding an eight-game winning streak. "There's no excuses. I'm just saying he looks good, but the conclusion hasn't been as good". Then came Sunday's affair in which the Rockies managed just four hits and struck out 14 times. Chicago has a 3-4 ATS record over its last seven games and the under has hit in six of those seven. There's even a possibility that he could be available out of the bullpen for the Rockies on Saturday if necessary.

The Rockies are now fourth in the majors with 277 strikeouts this season, averaging more than nine strikeouts per game.

His record is 1-4 and has picked up a nasty habit of giving up home runs, allowing at least one a game this season.
