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

Hendricks is giving up 2.12 home runs per nine innings this season, while his career average is just 0.85. Updates with new lede.

Jose Quintana (2-1) allowed four runs and eight hits in 5 1/3 innings. Well, that lasted for all but a day as Yu Darvish and the Cubs fell to the Rockies 5-2. The Rockies' 28 homers are tied for the major league lead but it was patience at the plate that gave them the win. Parra is facing a four-game suspension, but he said Friday there was no word on his appeal.• Fresh off a solid injury rehab start, righty Jeff Hoffman was recalled, then optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Phillies 3, Pirates 2 (11 innings) - At Philadelphia: Aaron Altherr's RBI single in the bottom of the 11th inning lifted the Phillies, giving Philadelphia its first four-game sweep over the Pirates in 24 years.

Wade Davis pitched the ninth for his ninth save in 10 chances.

Colorado, dazed by the Cubs' early, six-run onslaught against starter German Marquez, managed to regain its balance and rally. Over his past two starts, with his command on point, Bettis has allowed just one run over 14 ⅓ innings. Bryant stayed on his feet but manager Joe Maddon ran out to prevent Bryant from falling. "If he gets him we get out of that inning". They tacked on three more in the eight with RBI's from Schwarber, Contreras and Heyward and added one in the 9th with an RBI infield single from Bryant. It looked that way in the first inning, too. In defense of the hitters, the Rockies played in sub-freezing wind chill two of the nights in Pittsburgh."Maybe swings and misses a little too much, but it's cold", Arenado said. I think he's throwing the ball great.

Another School Shooting Happens in Florida
School walkouts were canceled districtwide in Marion County after the shooting, according to school board member Nancy Stacy. Parents rushed to the school to pick up rattled children, only to be directed elsewhere by sheriff's deputies.

The Cubs scored two runs in the top of the first for the second straight game.

The second inning was clean, but the Cubs worked Gray into another jam in the third. The Cubs had runners at first and third with one out but Anderson got struggling Anthony Rizzo to pop out to second and Contreras to fly out to center.

David Bote replaced Bryant in the game as a pinch runner, and at third base.

They sent 10 men to the plate in the sixth to put the game out of reach.

Despite this being Coors Field and despite Quintana's struggles, I see this game falling under the total. I felt really old, especially with my birthday, getting older."It was cool talking to them, cool being around young kids".
