It will be interesting to see how the Cubs bats do at Coors field.

Critical game for the Cubs. Need to show that they can build off of momentum from a big win.

T1 - Baez still lacing it. Homer right off the bat (literally and figuratively) to put the Cubs up 1-0.

Blackmon is dangerous in this spot. Any guy with a walk-up song by The Outfield should be a pitcher's nightmare.

B1 - Charlie Blackmon takes Kyle Hendricks to right for an RBI single. DJ LeMahieu scores from second, and Nolan Arenado follows that up with a first-pitch homer just over the wall in right. Hendricks coming unraveled early.

Hopefully, Maddon will give the Almora-Baez combo a decent chance at the top of the order. He has to like what he's seeing, and Happ isn't the answer batting leadoff.

6 multi-hit performers for the Cubs tonight. 15 runs, 16 hits and 13 RBI. Safe to say the multitudinous off days over the course of the past week rejuvenated the Cubs' dormant offense.

FINAL - Cubs win going away. Almora (4-6, 4 runs) and Baez (4-6, 4 RBI) lead the way for Chicago. Hendricks (1-1, 4.09) credited with the win. Cubs will aim for 1st three-game win streak of the season tomorrow.
