Recap: Chicago Cubs vs. Colorado

Chicago, IL (SportsNetwork.com) - Brandon Barnes singled in the go-ahead run in the 10th inning to boost the Colorado Rockies over the Chicago Cubs, 6-4, on Wednesday.

Wesley Wright (0-2) walked Nolan Arenado and Drew Stubbs before giving up a one-out single to Michael McKenry. Barnes stepped to the plate with the bases loaded and hit a single to left. Stubbs then scored on a wild pitch to make it 6-4.

Adam Ottavino worked around a two-out single in the bottom half of the 10th to pick up his first save in the big leagues.

The Rockies had dropped the first two contests of this four-game series, including a 16-inning loss on Tuesday.

"The way we've lost some games, it seems like it's been Murphy's Law around here, so it was nice to see us fight for that win because they haven't been coming easy," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said.

Brett Anderson got the start for Colorado and struck out nine while giving up two runs on 11 hits over seven innings. Rob Scahill (1-0) pitched a scoreless ninth for his second major league win. He was recalled from Triple-A Colorado Springs before the game.

Chicago starter Travis Wood set a career high with 11 strikeouts, but remains winless in eight starts dating to a 3-0 win at Philadelphia on June 15. He gave up four runs on eight hits over six innings.

"It was definitely a positive," Wood said. "I had good command of most of my stuff. Missed with a few and they made me pay."

The Cubs tied the game at four on Luis Valbuena's two-run homer in the eighth. Tom Kahnle was almost out of the inning after recording two quick outs. Starlin Castro then hit a deep fly ball to the wall in center that Stubbs dropped. Castro reached second on the error and scored on Valbuena's blast to right.

Earlier, the Rockies jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first. Arenado hit a two-out double to left and raced home on Justin Morneau's single to left.

Colorado tacked on two more runs in the second. McKenry led off with a single and crossed the plate on Charlie Culberson's double to left. After Anderson struck out looking, Charlie Blackmon hit an RBI double to left-center field.

The Cubs finally got on the board in the fifth. Ryan Sweeney hit a two-out single and scored on John Baker's double down the left-field line.

Each team scored a run in the sixth. McKenry's double scored Stubbs in the top half, while Chris Coghlan crossed the plate on Valbuena's infield single in the home portion.

Game Notes

Prior to Wednesday's game, the Cubs acquired pitcher Felix Doubront from the Boston Red Sox in exchange for a player to be named later ... Rockies outfielder Carlos Gonzalez was out of the lineup due to soreness in his right ankle and left knee.
