Cubs Squander Early Lead

Dave Sappelt and the Cubs offense got going early, but the pitching staff could not hold the lead and the Cubs dropped game one to the Rockies 10-5 in a rain-shortened game.  Dave Sappelt led the game off with a towering home run to left and before the inning was over the Cubs would add two more runs, including an RBI double from Welington Castillo.  After Chris Rusin shut down the Rockies in the first, things did not go so well the rest of the way for him or the Cubs bullpen as Colorado would score in each of the next five innings.  Chris Rusin took the loss lasting only 3.2 innings, allowing six runs on seven hits.  Rafael Dolis continued to struggle, giving up three runs in just one 1.1 innings of relief and Manuel Corpas allowed one run in his inning of work.  Starlin Castro connected on his 14th home run of the season and Darwin Barney added an RBI in the loss.  After dealing with the rain for most of the game it was eventually called after a 48-minute rain delay following the top of the seventh.  Despite the cold and the rain the ball was really jumping out of Coors Field on Tuesday and the Cubs hope to take advantage of that on Wednesday and keep the Rockies at bay in doing so.
