That win gave Chicago Cubs (43-61) fans something to finally cheer about, and will know hope their team can to make it three in row.

As a team the Cubs scored four runs on 12 hits.


For Wednesday’s game the Cubs will send left-hander Travis Wood to the hill. Wood who has lost his four of his last seven decisions has allowed 132 hits and 68 earned runs while striking out 97 over 212 innings for a 7-9 record and a 5.06 ERA. Wood has been very good against the Rockies, posting a 1-1 record in four career starts with an ERA of 1.80.

Colorado will counter with southpaw Brett Anderson who has won only one in his last six appearances.

For the season he has allowed 32 hits and 12 earned runs while striking out 18 over 33.1 innings for an 1-3 record and a 3.24 ERA. This will be Anderson’s first appearance versus the Cubs.

1. Tuesday’s contest surpassed the 6 hours, 10 minutes Chicago played in a 2-1 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers in 21 innings on Aug. 17, 1982 at Wrigley – also the previous longest game in Cubs annals. The Rockies’ previous long contest was a 2-1 victory in San Diego on April 17, 2008, which took 6:16 and 22 innings to complete.
2. Colorado INF Cristhian Adames on Tuesday made his major-league debut and went 0-for-3 – including a double play against Baker to end the 16th inning – after entering in the 10th.
3. Rockies 1B Justin Morneau on Tuesday went 1-for-4 with a two-run double and three walks in his return to the lineup after missing 10 games because of a neck injury.

Matt’s Free Prediction: UNDER –

Colorado is 7-21 in their last 28 meetings in Chicago.

Both teams are to inconsistent making it too hard to predict a straight up winner. And while I expect some scoring, my pick is going to be the under here if it comes in at 7 or above.
