Colorado Rockies at Chicago Cubs Free Pick 05/02/18

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

Jacob deGrom is the man the Mets will rely on to extend their lead in the National League East as they face their division rivals in NY.

Back-to-back home runs in the top of the first proved to be enough for the Colorado Rockies, as they snapped the Chicago Cubs' five-game winning streak, evening the series at one game apiece. Addison Russell (run, RBI) was the only Cub with two hits in the game: Albert Almora Jr. and Anthony Rizzo drove in the other runs. Of Colorado's 129 runs this season, 63 have came via home runs (48.8 percent). From there, the Rockies kept the long drives coming. Colorado Rockies' Nolan Arenado hit a two-run shot in the first, and that was all they would need from there to coast to an 11-2 victory.

The Colorado Rockies had dropped three straight games before Tuesday night, thanks largely in part to a lack of offensive firepower.

Yu Darvish will finish off the series for the Cubs on Wednesday and hopes to back up his best outing of the season with another solid start. Arenado connected again in the eighth, nailing a three-run homer to left against Luke Farrell that bounced into the street.

"We have a lot of power, one through nine, really", Arenado said.

"I don't think it's time to panic by any means", said pitcher Chad Bettis. "It's good to hit the ball out of the ballpark but we still have to have the kind of at-bats we had today". Anderson will make his first start Wednesday since leaving his last outing after only 1 1/3 innings because of discomfort in his chest. Kris Bryant flies out to deep right field to Carlos Gonzalez. 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.

- No ER allowed by starters in last 33.2 IP.

When Gray goes seven innings and keeps the lead throughout the game before passing the ball to the bullpen, that is ideal. He returned with about 20 cups from Starbucks. Gray has posted an ERA of 4.99 in seven games this season an has just pitched 39.2 innings so far, meaning that right around the middle of the fifth inning is usually when the wheels start to fall off - right around when the batting order flips for the third time.

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. "Instead I chose to hit Rizzo leadoff".

The Colorado Rockies are ready to face the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field.
