The Chicago Cubs are finally back in the win column after dropping 4 in a row. The power surge was real at Wrigley today as the Cubs hit 4 home runs on their way to beating Colorado 7-5.
Anthony Rizzo got the scoring started for the Cubs when he laced a double to shallow right field which would bring in Jon Jay to put the Cubs up 1-0.
With Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo still on base, Ben Zobrist stepped up to the plate in the bottom of the 1st and hit a BOMB to push the Cubs lead to 4-0 over Colorado after one.
The Rockies would later climb back in the game in the 5th inning after a LeMahieu walk brought Wolters in to make it 4-1. A single from Reynolds would also bring in Tapia making it 4-2. Then Ian Desmond would single to left bringing in Blackmon and LaMahieu to tie the game at 4 after the 5th inning.
The Cubs would get things rolling again in the 6th inning as Kyle Schwarber and Addison Russell went back-to-back to put the Cubs back on top, 6-4.
The Cubs would strike again in the 8th with another homer, this time from Miguel Montero to make it 7-4 Cubs, which would be the last run for Chicago in a power surge at Wrigley.
The Rockies would get one more meaningless run with Wade Davis on the mound to close it out as LeMahieu singled in Blackmon to make it 7-5 and that would end up being the final of this one. Cubs win 7-5.
Jake Arrieta would receive a no decision today going 4 1/3 innings allowing 4 runs and only tallying 3 strikeouts. However, he is still unbeaten at Wrigley this year.
Carl Edwards Jr. would pick up the win in a strong outting from the bullpen pushing his record to 2-0. He had 2 strikeouts & only allowed 1 hit in 1 2/3 innings.
Koji also shut it down out of the pen pitching 2 strong innings without allowing a hit or a run.
Wade Davis would pick up his 13th save of the year even though he allowed one run in the 9th, but it would be a meaningless run.
Cubs ultimately get back in the win column after a power surge in Chicago and it is a great sight to see for Cubs fans everywhere. Fly the W!
