CHICAGO (AP) While cheap Trevor Story jersey’s first game at Wrigley Field was a dud, the rest of the day went quite well for the Colorado Rockies jerseys.
cheap Chad Bettis jersey pitched six scoreless innings, cheap Ben Paulsen jersey had an RBI single and threw out a runner at the plate, and the Rockies jerseys took advantage of the Chicago Cubs jerseys’ shaky defense for a 6 1 victory on Friday.
Story, a rookie who leads the majors with seven homers, went 0 for 5, but Colorado manufactured runs and got solid pitching on its way to its third straight victory.
“It was a really good game all the way around,” Rockies jerseys manager Walt Weiss said. “Wind blowing in, it’s going to be tough to score by way of the home run. We played a little bit of small ball and ran the bases very well.”
The Cubs jerseys, who had won eight of nine in their best start in 47 years, managed only four singles and made four errors. Third baseman cheap Kris Bryant jersey committed two of the errors, including a wild throw on a bunt that scored a run in the seventh.
“We had a bad day,” Cubs jerseys manager Joe Maddon said. “It’s not always going to be an oil painting.”
Bettis (2 0) cheap mlb jerseys for sale was sharp in first career start against the Cubs jerseys, and he got some help with several fine plays by his defense. The 26 year old right hander allowed three hits, struck out four and walked three.
“I did feel very comfortable with my tempo and how my pitches were moving,” Bettis said.
Chicago right hander cheap Kyle Hendricks jersey (1 1) was charged with four runs, two earned, and seven hits in six innings. The Cubs jerseys had won five in a row.
Chicago scored its lone run in the seventh when reliever cheap Chad Qualls jersey forgot to cover first on what could have been an inning ending double play.
“We just didn’t adjust to them playing small ball,” said shortstop cheap Addison Russell jersey, who had an error.
With each of the players wearing No. 42 on the 69th anniversary of Jackie Robinson becoming the first black major leaguer, the Rockies jerseys went ahead 1 0 in the second inning on Paulsen’s single to center. It scored cheap Nolan Arenado jersey, who reached when Hendricks couldn’t field his tapper wide of mound.
Colorado added two more in the sixth. cheap Carlos Gonzalez jersey’s leadoff single extended his hitting streak to 10 games, and Arenado reached on a rare bunt single. Gonzalez scored on cheap Gerardo Parra jersey’s single up the middle and Arenado scampered home when cheap Ryan Raburn jersey bounced into a double play.
Bettis and the Rockies jerseys’ defense made it hold up. Parra and Gonzalez each had diving grabs in the outfield. Second baseman cheap DJ LeMahieu jersey made an over the shoulder catch. Paulsen cut down cheap Jorge Soler jersey at the plate when he tried to score on Hendricks’ one out safety squeeze in the fifth.
Story, at Wrigley Field for the first time, struck out twice to give him a major league high 17, but the Rockies jerseys opened a six game trip with their fourth win in five games.
“It’s not an easy turnaround flying in, getting in kind of late and playing a day game here,” Arenado said. “It was a great game.”
