That includes the three games vs. the punch-less Rockies. Then it was David Dahl's turn tally his first dinger of the 2018 season when he took a hanging curveball on the outside of the plate to left-center for back-to-back long balls out of the gate.

The Cubs are turning to righty Yu Darvish (0-2, 5.26 ERA), who has 29 strikeouts and 13 walks as well as a WHIP of 1.44.

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. 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.

Seeing the aggression and influx of power immediately to start the month of May is a great sign for the Rockies. After all, following a 1-for-4 outing Sunday, all-star third baseman Nolan Arenado is batting.192 in 20 games at the Fish Bowl.

The wind was blowing out to left field each of the last two nights and neither team could get the ball out of the freaking infield (I'm exaggerating, of course, but one would think these two teams would have combined for more than four runs given the hitter's conditions last night.) We didn't see anything in the first two games of the series to indicate that these two teams will break out the bats tonight. As Maddon himself said on Tuesday, he likes to put some of his stars up top when they're in a bit of a funk to "let them lighten up a little bit and just go play".

Darvish (0-3) got tagged for six runs - five earned - and seven hits over 4 1/3 innings by a team that began the day with the majors' lowest batting average.

Malkin, Dumoulin, Hagelin all GTDs for Game 3
I think he's doing a good job and he's playing the game the way he should, the way he needs to to be a really effective player. Nicklas Backstrom wrapped up the scoring with his third goal of the playoffs on an empty netter with seven seconds remaining.

There has always been a frustration surrounding this thought process and Gray. He struck out nine, walked one and need only 100 pitches to navigate his seven innings. The longer Gray pitched, the better he looked. Against the Cubs, that is exactly what happened.

Colorado won the first game, 1-0 on Friday night, with relief pitcher Antonio Senzatela driving in the only run. Beyond that, it was almost an impeccable outing for Gray, who needed a start of that caliber to get himself back on track.

Dodgers 2, D'backs 1 • Alex Verdugo doubled and scored twice to help Los Angeles win on the road. They also became the first team since Milwaukee in 2011 to win five straight games scoring three runs or less. Just look at the filthiness and how un-hittable this slider is that he threw in the eighth inning last night. This time though, it was Davis up against his former Cubs ball club, but the result was the same. Chicago has a 3-4 ATS record over its last seven games and the under has hit in six of those seven.

The Patriots are clearing making the OL a focus after drafting Georgia G Isaiah Wynn with pick #23 overall in the 1st round. Brown is entering the final year of his contract and San Francisco drafted McGlinchey ninth overall to take his role.

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