Chicago Cubs vs Colorado Rockies – Series Preview (September 22-24): Overview, Game and Broadcast Info, Starting Pitchers, W2W4

The Cubs really have no more room for error, so they have to win the series (79-74) against a bad Rockies (56-96) team and probably have to sweep them. David Ross’s squad hasn’t shown much ability to win a game of late, let alone a series, but that is the spot they are in.

Chicago has one more chance to turn things around, can they grab it? If they don’t, they go home at the end of next week.
