Cubs @ Colorado: Quintana vs. Lambert (Game 66)

CHC (37-28): LHP José Quintana (4-5, 3.77 ERA)
COL (34-31): RHP Peter Lambert (1-0, 1.29 ERA)
First pitch 7:40pmCDT

The Cubs couldn't defend a four-run lead, nor were they able to assemble a comeback late in the series opener. Now José Quintana takes the hill and the Cubs work to even the series. Q lost to the Rockies at Wrigley last time. He surrendered six hits and no walks in 7.1 innings. Most of the damage resulted from a pair of doubles in the 4th. Q allowed three earned runs in that outing. He's pitched three games at Coors, and his opponents have gone 18-69 with four homeruns and five doubles, accumulating an OPS of .847. Charlie Blackmon is 4-6 against him, Trevor Story is 4-8, and Arenado is 2-12, but both hits were homeruns.
