German Marquez throws gem, Rockies beat Cubs 3-0


The Chicago Cubs are scheduled to play the Colorado Rockies.

The Rockies took two of three games from the Cubs to take the series and improve to 22-13, their best start in franchise history through 35 games. They're 20-9 in his last 29 starts, are 7-2 in his last nine outings coming off four days of rest, and are 8-1 in his last nine road starts.

Lackey (3-3) faced only four batters with a runner in scoring position and threw 76 of his 105 pitches for strikes. Javier Baez moved from second to short, but Baez committed a fielding error on a potential double play grounder that set up the Rockies' run on a sacrifice fly by Ian Desmond in the fourth.

"I felt good in spring", Hendricks said. I know this was the only 31st game of the year with plenty of baseball to still be had but dammit it's hard to watch them get crushed by the Rockies. "We hadn't scored a couple runs off him in a long time, maybe ever".

"I'm kind of a quiet guy", Contreras said.

Santiago (4-1) allowed two runs, three hits and five walks over 6 2/3 innings.

It did not, though it did become the largest party in each, as it now is in half of Scotland's 32 councils. This is the third local government election in a row that the party has made losses.

Anderson pitched his best game of the season earlier this week when the 27-year-old left-hander struck out 10 over six innings in a win over the Diamondbacks at Coors Field. "Able to locate that well".

The game was tied when rookie sensation Magneuris Sierra reached on an infield single with one out in the ninth, and he continued to second on an errant throw to first by A.J. Ramos (1-2). But Floro did save the Cubs bullpen by pitching 4 1/3 innings of one-run ball.

"It has been [a house of horrors] most of the time for me", Lackey said. I maintain full optimism still that the Cubs will win the division and represent themselves aptly in October, but for that to happen, more starts like tonight are a must. Jeimer Candelario will take his spot on the field at first base and lead off hitter Kyle Schwarber will man the 3 spot. Freeland didn't help his cause by walking three, including Candelario with two outs and the bases loaded.

"As soon as I hit it, thought it was an out", Hanigan said. I was trying to out-stuff guys instead of letting my stuff work. Two-seamer was up in the zone, they ambushed it a few times. They were up-and-down performances, with one bad inning that would elevate his pitch counts.

He entered Wednesday afternoon's game against the Cubs with nine starts on his major-league resume. "He had a really, really good breaking ball, slider, today, and commanded everything".
