Cubs' Kris Bryant hit in head with pitch, leaves game vs. Rockies

Baez had four hits, finishing a triple shy of the cycle.

The Rockies offense, which has struggled for a majority of the season, was sluggish in the early going. Albert Amora Jr. added four hits, including a double and RBI single. Hendricks is giving up 2.12 home runs per nine innings this season, while his career average is just 0.85. But, he ran into trouble in the 5th inning where he gave up five runs on four hits, and three walks.

The Cubs tied it in the third and used a couple of Colorado errors in the fifth to take a 5-3 lead. They batted around in the sixth, collecting a season-high six hits in the inning, three of them for extra bases.

David Bote ran for Bryant at first base.

Bryant, the 2016 NL MVP, is hitting.319 with two home runs and 11 RBIs.

Baez hit a one-out double and initially was called out trying to advance on Bryant's fielder's choice.

But thankfully, there's an update on Chicago's third baseman. Baez later scored on a groundout and Bryant came home on Arenado's errant throw to first after fielding a grounder by Wilson Contreras.

The Cubs haven't yet relayed any information, but it's pretty likely Bryant has a concussion and will immediately be placed on the seven-day disabled list. Farrell was expected to serve in long relief.

The Rockies played without outfielder Carlos Gonzalez because of a sore right hamstring. After another diving catch a few innings later, Almora crashed into the wall after making a running catch of Blackmon to start the bottom of the ninth. The Rockies were off on Thursday.

The Cubs followed the HBP with four hits, scoring three times, all with two outs.

Miguel Andujar (New York Yankees - 9.7% Owned) - Andujar has flown a bit under the radar with all of the offensive superstars in the Yankees lineup, but people will have to start paying attention as the 3B is 13 for 24 over his last 6 games played with 2 HR's and 7 RBI's.
