The Cubs continue their road trip tonight with a stop in Colorado for a 4 game series with the Rockies. The Cubs who were on a very hot streak and fought their way to first place in the NL Central have no lost 4 in a row. The Cubs were swept in their 3 game series in Houston and now they will have a 4 game series against the Rockies. As I said before the only good thing right now for the Cubs is that the Brewers have been losing as well but the same Rockies that the Cubs will face tonight destroyed the Brewers 19-4 yesterday afternoon. The Cubs will send Ted Lilly to the mound tonight. Lilly is 12-5 with a 3.53 era so far this season. Lilly will have to put together a quality start tonight against the Rockies. The Rockies are sending Ubaldo Jimenez to the hill tonight. Jimenez is 1-1 with a 5.16 era. Tonights game may not be the best game to watch today but it is a game to see if the Cubs can show that they can get back on the winning track.
