The Colorado Story Stops Here
Trevor Story, as you have probably heard by now is dinging the ball out of the park on a regular basis for Colorado in his premier MLB debut season.
That Colorado story came to a screeching halt on Friday as Story was without a hit, let alone a long ball to the seats. Trevor contained was a big story but, in the entire game scenario, it didn’t matter.
The Cubs were riding high on an 8-1 W-L season start, and ready to make it 9-1. That didn’t happen as the Rockies re-wrote the story.
Rockies starter, Chad Bettis pitched 6 shutout innings against a quiet Cubs bench.
Kyle Hendricks started for the Cubs, and it wasn’t his best work but, it wasn’t anybody’s best work.
The Cubs defense suffered through 4 errors.
The best of the best have to suffer a setback now, and again but, their true measure is how they come back.
The day’s over, gone so, it’s time to re-group for a ‘W’ on Saturday behind Jake Arrieta as the Cubs starting pitcher.
