DENVER (AP) — Ryan Raburn hit an RBI double and continued home when the Cubs threw away the relay, capping a two-run rally in the 11th inning against Aroldis Chapman and sending the Colorado Rockies over Chicago 7-6 early Saturday.
On a wet night when rain delayed the start for more than two hours, and with temperatures dropping into the 40s, the Rockies wound up winning well past midnight.
Dexter Fowler, who led off the game with a home run, gave Chicago a 6-5 lead by blooping an RBI single in the top of the 11th.
In the bottom half, Nick Hundley singled with one out off Chapman (0-1). Raburn then tied it with a drive off the right-field wall. And when second baseman Javier Baez made a wild throw that got past catcher Willson Contreras and flew into the Cubs’ dugout, the umpires waved Raburn home.
Matt Carasiti (1-0) got the win.
