Colorado Rockies vs. Chicago Cubs, 5-2-2018 - Expert Prediction

"We just didn't swing the bats here, this series", manager Bud Black said Sunday, deftly sidestepping the bigger issue after the Rockies were blanked, 3-0, by a Marlins team with a 9-18 record. Kyle Hendricks took the loss, falling to 2-2 this season after giving up three runs on four hits while striking out five over 7.2 innings of work.

It's off to the city that never sleeps for a three-game set between the Colorado Rockies and New York Mets. While the Rockies were able to take advantage of a warm breeze, Gray made sure the Cubs didn't. The Rockies dropped to.500 on the year, 15-15, and stand six games back of the Diamondbacks in the NL West entering Tuesday. Of Colorado's 129 runs this season, 63 have came via home runs (48.8 percent). Ben Zobrist lines out to center field to Charlie Blackmon.

The Rockies blew it wide open in the top of the eighth when Noel Cuevas threw out a pinch-hit single, Blackmon walked again, and Arenado blasted a no-doubt screaming home run onto Wayland Avenue beyond the bleachers in left field.

Seeing the aggression and influx of power immediately to start the month of May is a great sign for the Rockies. Nolan Arenado strikes out swinging.

The Rockies hit seven home runs over the past two games at Wrigley Field, including three for Arenado. And when they're not hitting, RBI chances go down as well.

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

Athletics 3, Mariners 2 • James Paxton struck out a major league-high 16 in seven innings, but the Seattle bullpen blew a late lead at home. Darvish put runners on base in every inning, including walks in each of the first three innings. Anthony Rizzo hit a solo homer to deep right in the fourth and Kris Bryant hit a two-out, solo homer to left in the sixth. Beyond that, it was almost an impeccable outing for Gray, who needed a start of that caliber to get himself back on track.

But their exit velocity was impressive when it came to being out of this one quickly in losing 11-2 to the Rockies on Wednesday.

The home runs by Story on the first pitch and Iannetta gave the right-hander 14 earned runs and a 31.50 ERA in the inning. The minutia of movement and rotation on the baseball was being perfectly manipulated by Ottavino, who was surgical with his precision, yet devastating with the movement on his pitches. "There's no excuses. I'm just saying he looks good, but the conclusion hasn't been as good".

The Chicago Cubs will look to win the set after dropping game two on Tuesday. In those games, he hit.300/.373/.680.

The Rockies offense did not go down in order in a single inning in this game.

When the Rockies can unleash the likes of Ottavino and Davis in the final two innings of the game in conjunction with everything else, it is hard to script a better recipe for success for the Rockies.
