Cubs 6, Rockies 2

By Chris Rewers on Tuesday, May 18, 2010

Hero: Carlos Silva improved to 5-0 after working six-plus innings. Silva allowed two runs on six hits while walking one and striking out four. He was removed in the seventh inning after walking Troy Tulowitzki and serving up a two-run homer to Todd Helton. Silva, who was just 5-18 with a 6.81 ERA the previous two seasons in Seattle, became the first Cubs pitcher to improve to 5-0 since Greg Maddux in 2006 and the first pitcher to win his first five decisions with the North Siders since Mark Clark in 1997. The only other 5-0 pitchers in the majors this season are San Francisco's Tim Lincecum, and Phil Hughes and Andy Pettitte of the New York Yankees.
