Cubs Rocky Mountain Low

By bullpenbrian at 07.31.2010 Leave a comment.

Friday night wasn’t just another low-point in the Cubs’ disappointing season. Instead, the Rockies’ 12-runs on 13-hits in the bottom of the eighth sank the Cubs to new lows.

Colorado’s 17-total runs are the most the Cubs have allowed against any opponent in 2010. As are the 12-runs in the eighth for the most runs allowed in any inning this season. The Rockies’ 11-consecutive hits in the eighth also set a MLB record.

Sean Marshall, who’s been nothing short of terrific, allowed five earned runs in the eighth. Andrew Cashner, meanwhile, coughed up six-runs on six-hits without recording an out.

It was the train wreck of the season, which explains, perhaps, why I watched the entire inning unfold. I couldn’t believe what I was watching, and I couldn’t turn away from it, either.

But for those who were fortunate, or smart enough, to tune out, here’s a recap…share my pain, Cubs fans!
