So what do they do for an encore? After winning last night with the wackiest ninth inning that's been played at Wrigley Field in a long time, if not ever, what next, to try to extend the four-game winning streak?
First, the teams may have to dodge raindrops. The forecast says:
Tonight: Scattered showers and thunderstorms before 9pm, then a chance of showers and thunderstorms after 1am. Partly cloudy, with a low around 76. Southwest wind between 5 and 15 mph. Chance of precipitation is 40%.

I looked at Lopez' stats and had to blink. Can this really be the same guy who had a 9-18 record with a 5.90 ERA and 1.55 WHIP for last year's Orioles, with 32 HR allowed? He's been excellent for the Rockies this year so far.
Time to change all that tonight.
Today's game is on WGN, on FSN Rocky Mountain (I saw one of their crews interviewing the ballhawks on Waveland last night), and at the Mediacenter.

I was remiss last night in not inviting you to check out our SBNation Rockies site, so please do visit Purple Row for the Rox fan point of view.
Discuss amongst yourselves.
