Cubs Top Rockies 7-3 in Make-Up Game on Monday – Wrigley Field 6/28/11

Posted on 28 June 2011 by Lou

The Cubs defeated the Rockies 7-3 in the makeup game of a game rained out back on April 27th.

Matt Garza pitched into the 8th inning, allowing just 3 ER on 5 hits.  Most importantly, Garza did not allow a walk and he struck out 6 hitters in his 111-pitch effort.

Aramis Ramirez and Carlos Pena are both heating up.  Ramirez went 3 for 4 with 3 RBI’s and 3 runs scored.  He hit a 2-run HR in the 1st inning and a solo home run in the 7th inning.  Pena hit 2 home runs – a solo shot in the 4th inning and a 2-run bomb in the 5th inning.  Pena now leads the club with his 16 home runs and 42 RBI’s despite a batting average in the low .200′s. Starlin Castro had a single to extend his hitting streak to 11-games.

The Cubs are now 32-46 and they trail the Brewers by 11.5 games in the NL Central race.  Not good..
