Castro made three errors in that inning, two on grounders he couldn’t pick up and another on a throw, and that led to three unearned Rockies runs after the Cubs had taken a 3-0 lead on Esmil Rogers in the first inning. Two of those came on Darwin Barney’s first major league home run.
Then, starter Matt Garza made a throwing error of his own on an attempted Rockies sacrifice in the fifth inning; this led to another unearned run. Of the five Colorado runs, only one was earned; Garza gave up just three singles and a walk and struck out seven but was tagged with the 5-3 loss.
The teams will play again Tuesday night at 7:05 p.m. CDT at Wrigley Field… once again, weather permitting.
