The Colorado Rockies won their second straight game over the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday night before another large crowd of 43,000-plus fans of both teams at Coors Field.
On the Colorado Rockies side, there was plenty to be excited about, including another masterful outing from rookie Peter Lambert, who improved to 2-0 in his young career with both decisions coming against the Cubs. He became just the second pitcher in franchise history to throw five or more innings while allowing one run or less in each of his first two career starts, joining Christian Friedrich‘s 2012 performances.
What other numbers do you need to know as the Rockies improved to 35-31 on the season? Let’s take a look at seven that stand out.
10 — Colorado won its 10th consecutive home game on Tuesday. That’s the second-longest home winning streak in franchise history and the Rockies can tie the mark of 11 (set in 1996) with a Wednesday matinee victory against the Cubs.
