The Rockies have a pivotal homestand starting on Thursday.One step forward, two steps back.That may be the best way to describe the Colorado Rockies month of May so far. With a chance to win a three-game set in Chicago and salvage a road trip that started off on such a bad note, the Rockies barely showed up on Wednesday night, losing 6-3 to a Cubs team that could lose 100 games for...

The Colorado Rockies got to Matt Cain early.

Jordan Pacheco had his first career grand slam baseball waiting for him on his chair after the game, sealed tightly in a plastic bag.

No such luck. Not here at Coors Field, where big leads can shrink oh so rapidly.
Pacheco gave the team a seemingly safe cushion in the fifth, Carlos Gonzalez later added an insurance...
Jeff Samardzija had a pretty amazing night last night.Dexter Fowler not so much.
Samardzija gave up 2 runs on 5 hits and 2 walks in 8 full innings. Probably the best part about that was the 8 innings.Because that was only 108 pitches.The other best part was the 2-run dinger he hit off Jon Garland.What a performance, and Dexter Fowler was there to watch it all. Cubs 6 Rockies 3.
