Chicago Sports Recap: 9/16/22

Colorado Rockies 1 – Chicago Cubs 2

Cubs, pitching no-hit ball into the sixth inning during a 2-1 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Friday. Stroman (4-7), who signed a $71 million, four-year contract, had been 0-5 with a 7.11 ERA in nine previous starts at Wrigley Field this season. He didn’t allow a hit until Ryan McMahon homered with two outs in the sixth, McMahon’s 17th this season. Stroman’s sinker, along with his slider, induced mostly soft contact. Zach McKinstry homered and tripled as the Cubs extended a winning streak to four for the first time since mid-August. Read more at:  https://www.espn.com/mlb/recap?gameId=401356358  (AP)
