DENVER -- First it was late March, Miami humidity. Two starts later, it was a balk. Then came Saturday, at Coors Field, when Chicago Cubs hurler Yu Darvish walked the opposing pitcher in the bottom of the fifth inning.
Like those previous outings, Darvish fell apart the moment adversity hit. A 2-0 Cubs lead turned into a 5-2 deficit -- and the final score of the game.
