DENVER – Together with his personal production, the Cubs would have come residence with a victory.
In fact, it takes more than just one participant, but Cole Hamels did lots to assist his group win at Coors Area on Sunday. It could possibly be argued that it was his greatest day of the 2019 season up to now, considering how the park is historically unkind to pitchers.
Yet the left-hander was capable of shutdown Rockies hitters throughout his seven innings on the mound and even contributed a two-RBI single within the fifth inning. That’s all the Cubs would have needed, since Hamels didn’t permit a run and the bullpen surrendered only one in a 10-1 rout in Colorado Wednesday afternoon.
Hamels’ efforts have been ok for his sixth win of the season as his ERA drops to 2.ninety eight on the season. Meanwhile the Cubs’ 5-recreation street dropping streak is historical past as they avoid the sweep at the hands of the Rockies earlier than a four-recreation collection with the Nationwide League-main Dodgers in Los Angeles starting Thursday.
