Same Story Different Night – Cubs Lose to Rockies 4-3 – Wrigley Field 4/27/11

Posted on 27 April 2011 by Lou

The Cubs lost to the Rockies 4-3 in a familiar storyline that is getting oh-so-old.  After jumping out to a 2-0 lead on a Jeff Baker single that scored Starlin Castro and on a Troy Tulowitki error on a ball hit by Geovany Soto that scored Darwin Barney, the Cubs could not figure out a way to hold onto the lead and win.

James Russell is just not getting it done in the rotation – 4 IP, 4ER on 3 home runs and 3 walks.  Not good.  The bullpen kept them in the game with 5 scoreless innings of relief, but the Cubs couldn’t muster another run until the 9th inning when Alfonso Soriano led off the inning with a home run.

The Cubs have now lost 3 straight and sit at 10-13 on the season, 2 games back of the Cards and Brewers for 1st place in the lowly NL Central.  The Cubs are just 6-8 at the Friendly Confines of Wrigley Field.
