Zobrist injury stinks, but the David Bote story is great. Gets to make his first MLB start in his hometown. Could make an impact in the Cubs' diverse lineup tonight.

T1 - Almora can do no wrong in Denver. Starts the game with a bloop single and adds a little swag with by rounding first quite conspicuously.

T1 - Hopefully, Maddon is taking notice of this 1-2 punch at the top of the batting order. Much-needed spark for the Cubs. Baez singles to put runners on 1st and 2nd.

We have a Bartman sighting at Coors Field, evidently. Possible glove interference coming into play on that Contreras double.

M1 - 2-run double for Contreras, as Albert and Javy continue their hot-hitting at the top of the order. The Cubs struck first last night and won big. Will be looking to do the same tonight.

In honor of his hard-fought at-bat, let's honor Charlie Blackmon...before the beard.

E1 - Darvish sits down the Rockies in short order. Strikes out Blackmon to end the frame.

T2 - First swing, first MLB hit. Opposite-field double for Bote. Awesome moment.

M2 - Gotta love the gutsy move by Bote. Just caught stealing. Strike-him-out/throw-him-out ends the scoring threat. Rockies still down two.

T3 - Bryant earns the walk. Has now reached base in 17 of 18 games. Second-best OBP in NL. Runners on corners for Cubbies.

M3 - Back-to-back pop-ups end the inning. Cubs waste having a man on second with no outs.

B3 - Rizzo thought about going to second there. Two down with a man in scoring position for Colorado.

E3 - Willie Mays who?!? Almora with the over-the-shoulder grab at the wall to end the inning. The cat can do it all.

Erratic strike zone tonight. There should probably be a height limit for home plate umpires. Just saying...

Darvish earned the ugliest strikeout in MLB history right there.

E4 - Darvish gets Story looking to end the inning. Arenado left stranded after single. Lone hit of the game so far for Rockies.

T5 - 3 ABs, 3x reaching base for Albert. Almora killing it in Colorado this weekend. Stand-up double. Got cute on the double play, though. That's the thing with the 2 Live Crew of Al and Javy. Too much sauce sometimes.

B5 - Rare situation where a ground-rule double was actually a positive for the pitching team. Rockies scored just one on the LeMahieu two-bagger. Parra made up for it. Two-run single. Rockies now lead. All it takes is two pitches to change the entire game.

Odd decision that Maddon has left Darvish in there as long as he has. Kinda evident a few at-bats ago that he was toast. Arenado plays the role of Cubs killer again with the RBI single. Two-run lead for Rockies.

E5 - Darvish implodes. He doesn't seem to fare too well in fifth innings, for some reason. Rockies bring in 5 runs. Tables turned as far as big innings from night before.

E6 - Good work by Strop to keep the Rockies in check. Bottom of the order coming up for Chicago.

Justin Wilson has to settle into a groove very soon. Hasn't seemed to jell the whole time he's been with Chicago.

FINAL - Darvish continues with mid-inning struggles, falling to 0-2 in four starts. Cubs waste a hot start and electrifying presence of Bote in loss. Rubber match coming tomorrow.

FINAL - Cubs 2, Rockies 5
