Colorado got on the board first with two runs in the bottom of the second inning, and the Cubs would trail until the sixth inning, when they pushed three runs across to take a slim 4-3 lead. But Colorado responded in the bottom half of the sixth to get those three runs right back and claim a 6-4 lead. The two teams traded runs in the seventh, but that was it for the scoring.

Carlos Torres and Rex Brothers pitched a scoreless eighth inning and ninth inning, respectively.
