Tough night for Rockies
Cubs 10, Rockies 2

 Baker goes deep
Rookie right-hander Ubaldo Jimenez struggled, surrendering nine runs -- five earned -- on nine hits and one walk over two-plus innings, and the Rockies were unable to come back in a loss to the Cubs. Jeff Baker drilled a solo homer and Ryan Spilborghs had a sacrifice fly, but Colorado fell for the first time in its last four games.
