Lester against Colorado on Monday

He is 1-3 with a 2.73 ERA in four career starts versus the Rockies. Updates with new lead.

The Cubs finally got to Anderson in the fourth on another wind-aided Anthony Rizzo home run, his second in as many days.

Of course, it was Wrigley Field in Chicago where baseballs leave the atmosphere in a hurry, but seeing the Rockies get home run production from other players other than named Charlie Blackmon was a welcomed sight. From there, the Rockies kept the long drives coming.

Run support for the Mets pitching staff is usually expected to come from Cuban slugger Yoenis Cespedes and the big man started the series strongly last night going three for four with a home run despite being slated to miss the game with a thumb injury.

Colorado has hit 41 homers through 32 games, and 28 have come away on the road, where the Rockies have played 20 of their 32 games.

Person of interest in Pa. double homicide found dead, authorities say
Mooney previously lived in the same neighborhood as the victims, but had no other apparent connection to them, he said. It's unclear if the Roy's were friends with Mooney, though at this point authorities believe there was no relationship.

The Rockies blew it wide open in the top of the eighth when Noel Cuevas threw out a pinch-hit single, Blackmon walked again, and Arenado blasted a no-doubt screaming home run onto Wayland Avenue beyond the bleachers in left field.

"I felt good about it". "I thought it might pick the boys up a little bit". "It's good to hit the ball out of the ballpark but we still have to have the kind of at-bats we had today". Anderson is 1-0 with a 2.25 ERA, a 1.50 WHIP, nine walks and 13 strikeouts over 12 innings in his last three starts.

1 run, 1 hit, 0 errors, 0 left on. Kris Bryant flies out to deep right field to Carlos Gonzalez.

Rizzo's drive was his second in as many days. He'll get the Rockies at home next.

While the Chicago Cubs entered Tuesday's game on a five-game winning streak, their offense has been stagnant.

The group has demanded that prisoners be moved to prisons closer to their families after the end of ETA. A spokesman for the Basque regional government said that it received ETA's letter "a few days earlier".

Tyler Anderson picked up his only win of the season when he recovered from a sloppy first inning to beat Cubs starter Yu Darvish. Anderson recorded a no-decision in his last start, which came on the road against the Marlins Friday.

When Gray goes seven innings and keeps the lead throughout the game before passing the ball to the bullpen, that is ideal. The longer Gray pitched, the better he looked.

Lester extended the streak for Chicago's starting pitchers to 33 ⅔ innings without giving up an earned run. I felt like I maxed out on those balls to left and left-center like I should.

The Colorado Rockies are ready to face the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field. Rusin has a 4.97 ERA in eight relief appearance after going 5-1 with a 2.65 ERA in 60 games a year ago.
