Colorado became the second team in the Majors to win 40 games yesterday with a 5-3 win over the Cubs. It was Colorado’s second straight win over the Cubbies, going into the weekend.
Neither starting pitcher went very deep into the game and as a result the Rockies’ bullpen threw about 100 pitches and the Cubs’ roughly 90.
Charlie Blackmon delivered the big blow, a two-run homer in the fifth to break a 2-2 tie and put Colorado ahead for good.
Former first-round pick Jeff Hoffman, who came over from Toronto in the Troy Tulowitzki deal, makes his fourth start of the season and the first on regular rest. He’s had 10+ days of rest in between the first and second and second and third.
All three have gone well, however. Hoffman has given up five earned in 19.1 innings in those three starts, including back-to-back outings of seven innings and one earned run. He’s struck out 16 without a walk in those last two.
Eddie Butler faces his former team, looking for his fourth win in six starts this season.
Filling in for Brett Anderson as the other guy among Lester, Arrieta, Lackey and Hendricks, Butler has a 3.75 ERA and 1.38 WHIP so far on the season. Opponents are hitting just 2.16.
That’s a far cry from a .303 career mark, mostly in Colorado. The Rockies will be anxious to get a chance against their former teammate as they look for three straight at Wrigley and to give themselves a chance to sweep on Sunday.

Free Colorado Rockies vs. Chicago Cubs MLB Prediction: the Cubs are in some trouble.
This weekend, at least. I haven’t seen Hoffman live yet but he looks good on paper. I do think the Rockies will hit Butler and have a great chance to send Chicago under .500 again. That’s reflected in the odds, though. My numbers are too close to Vegas’ to play this one.
