The Rockies won again on Wednesday, 8-1, to sweep their mini two-game series with the Indians.
Kyle Freeland got some run support early and he was terrific, once again. He pitched into the seventh and allowed just a solo shot to Jose Ramirez. The rookie is 7-3. It was Colorado’s fourth win in a row and Freeland’s fourth, personally.
Back in the day, Tyler Chatwood was one of the better starting pitchers the Rockies had. This season, he’s more of a weak link.
Chatwood is 5-7 with a 4.60 ERA. He is coming off eight innings of one-run ball but it was against the Padres.
Chatwood’s game log is full of four, five-inning performances with four, five runs allowed with some gems mixed in. One of those will be hard to come by at Wrigley on Thursday.
Not that the Cubs’ offense has been great. It did get five runs on Wednesday but that wasn’t enough, as the Marlins snapped Chicago’s five-game winning streak with a 6-5 win. It also paid +170 on the moneyline to us.
Anthony Rizzo is heating up, however. He had another two hits and drove in a pair. Kyle Schwarber also went 3-for-4 out of the nine-hole with a homer.
Jon Lester starts on Thursday. I have nothing noteworthy to say about him.

I do expect it to happen but Colorado isn’t getting much respect with the second-most wins in baseball.
