After Davis' ejection, Cubs assistant hitting coach Andy Haines threw his drink toward the umpire on the field and was also ejected.

For the Rockies, who fell to 3-6 at home in front of a sellout crowd of 48,137, it was a messy affair.

Rockies: LHP Tyler Anderson (0-0, 4.74 ERA) is seeking his first win in his fifth start of the season. Last year, Hendricks was a tough-luck loser at Coors, allowing just two earned runs and four hits in 6.1 innings of a 3-0 defeat while walking two and striking out seven. Chicagohas covered the spread four times in its last seven games and the over has hit in five of those seven.

Chicago's Javier Baez's homered, doubled and drove in three runs. Singles by Arenado and Trevor Story and a walk to Dahl loaded the bases with two outs in the ninth against Morrow, leading to the game's odd ending with Desmond at bat.

For the first four innings, Yu Darvish and the Chicago Cubs appeared to be on cruise control. 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.

Colorado cut the lead to 6-4 in the fifth on back-to-back homers by Blackmon and Arenado.

Cubs' Bryant has scare: Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant left Sunday's game after being hit on the head with a 96 miles per hour pitch from Colorado's German Marquez. Small laceration above his eye from his sunglasses.

The Cubs quickly retaliated by scoring three runs.

The Rockies answered with a three-run first, getting an RBI single from Charlie Blackmon and a two-run homer by Arenado, who clubbed the first pitch for his second homer of the season in his first game back since serving his suspension for charging the mound April 11 against San Diego.

Bettis has been, far and away, the Rockies' best pitcher. On Thursday, Hoffman threw 73 pitches and gave up one run on two hits with six strikeouts in 4 2/3 innings. The team's starters have a 4.53 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 7.7 strikeouts per nine innings. Mitchell is having control problems, having walked 17 batters through 19 ⅔ innings.

Both were past year, the first at Coors Field on May 10 when he held Chicago to three hits in eight scoreless innings.

ASTROS 7, WHITE SOX 1: Jose Altuve hit a go-ahead single in a five-run seventh inning, and Houston stretched its winning streak to six.
