Cubs hope hits continue to rain down against Rockies

DENVER -- Rain was in the forecast Friday night, which was the last thing the Chicago Cubs needed after having three games postponed this week.

So before the Cubs trampled the Colorado Rockies 16-5, manager Joe Maddon joked, "We're at the point now, we just want to play. You can call us the Chicago Bulls right now. We play like every third day, maybe twice a week. We'd like to get back to regular baseball schedule."

The temperature was in the 30s, and it rained heavily late in the game. But the Cubs (9-8) reached season-highs in runs and hits (18) and will try to win a season-high third straight game in Saturday's road contest against the Rockies.
