No Strop, No Rondon, No Go
The Colorado Rockies must have been happy to see Kyle Hendricks out of the game as hind sight will show.
The Cubs saw their lead diminish in to a lost cause on Friday night. The Cubs bullpen fell victim to Coors Field, and the team that inhabits the park as their own.
The loss of Pedro Strop, and Hector Rondon as Cubs bullpen components were missed.
To the bottom of the 9th in a 5-5 tie, Felix Pena made his MLB debut out of the Cubs Pen, and struck out 2 in a 1,2, 3 inning.
Next from the Pen was Rob Zastryzny making his MLB debut in the 10th, and it wasn’t a bad inning for his debut with no runs across, some orchestrated strategy coming from the bench intertwined with some Rockies contact.
