Rockies 5, Cubs 2: Yu blew it

Yu Darvish was really good. And then, suddenly, he wasn’t. In the course of just a few minutes Saturday evening, Yu Darvish went from working on a no-hitter to being removed from the game without completing five innings for the third time in four starts. Darvish allowed his first hit with two out in the fourth, but it was the fifth inning that was his undoing. With two out and a runner on first, Darvish walked Rockies pitcher Tyler Anderson. The next five Rockies reached base, four by hits, and five runs scored in the inning, all the Rockies would need for a 5-2 win over the Cubs. This...

There are other things to get excited about, like the debut of David Bote, and more somber news, as Danny Farquhar has suffered a brain hemorrhage. Welcome to the Show, David Bote! #EverybodyIn...

Rockies 5, Cubs 2: Big inning powers Rockies win

Tyler Anderson put together a quality start and the Rockies offense backed him up and got a win. A five-run fifth inning proved to be all the Colorado Rockies needed to snap a two-game skid and secure a 5-2 win over the Chicago Cubs at Coors Field. Starting pitcher Tyler Anderson gave up a two-run double to Willson Contreras in the top of the first, but that is all he would allow in six innings of work in which he surrendered six hits, walked two and struck out six. All of the Rockies’ offense came against Cubs starter Yu Darvish in the fifth. With a man on and two outs, six straight...
