Lackey helps Cubs gain split with Rockies

Carl Edwards Jr. got a groundout that moved the runners into scoring position, and Black chose to let Marquez bat against Edwards, who entered the game with a 0.64 ERA and had allowed four hits in 14 innings. Tigers starter Matthew Boyd (2-2) allowed three earned runs and eight hits in six innings.

Javier Baez made it 7-0 when he hit an opposite-field, two-run homer to right in the eighth, and Bryant belted a homer in the ninth.

With his performance, it allowed the Cubs bullpen to get some much-needed rest after a poor start from Brett Anderson on Saturday, an 18-inning marathon on Sunday and a short outing by Arrieta earlier in the day.

"I would say the poise of what I've seen from Freeland and Senzatela has been fantastic for young guys", Hanigan told Goodman and Shapiro.

Will the Cubs win their series versus the Rockies when the teams wrap things up at 3:10PM ET? However, he skied a sacrifice fly high to left field to plate Charlie Blackmon in the fourth inning to push the Colorado lead to 7-2.

It's up to those star players (the envy of every other team in the NHL) to do something about this elimination game. Trotz "wouldn't be surprised" if he saw Crosby's familiar No. 87 on Saturday night. "That's just what we need".

"I've already missed three weeks, so it's going to take a while", he said. Black showed faith in him to escape and he did, too, by getting two groundouts to end the threat. "It's hard to focus", said manager Joe Maddon, whose team lost its fourth straight. Marquez finished with a Game Score of 88, which is the sixth-best mark in franchise history.

He found his masterful control Wednesday after a rain delay of 50 minutes at the start. Fowler, held out of the starting lineup for the previous five games because of a sore shoulder, followed with a sharp single to right field, and the speedy Sierra slid home ahead of Giancarlo Stanton's throw. "I'd be surprised if it's any longer than that", Maddon said. Jeimer Candelario will take his spot on the field at first base and lead off hitter Kyle Schwarber will man the 3 spot.

"They were determined to make something happened", manager Mike Matheny said.

METS 6, GIANTS 1: At New York, Zack Wheeler pitched two-hit ball against the team that traded him, Michael Conforto homered and New York scored four times in the first inning against staggering San Francisco. Cubs right-hander John Lackey will start the second game vs. Colorado rookie left-hander Kyle Freeland.

With two on and two outs in the seventh, Marquez broke open the game with his liner to left on an 0-2 pitch left up. Reynolds is batting.533 through four games on this 10-game homestand.
