(Colo.)- Lackey Strikes Out 10, Cubs Beat Rockies 8-1 For DH Split

DENVER (AP) - John Lackey struck out 10 over seven scoreless innings and added an RBI single, helping the Chicago Cubs stop a four-game skid by beating the Colorado Rockies 8-1 on Tuesday for a day-night doubleheader split.
 
Chicago gave Lackey plenty of cushion with a five-run second inning. Javier Baez added a two-run homer in the eighth and Kris Bryant a solo shot in the ninth.
 
Lackey (3-3) allowed just four singles, a sharp contrast to his previous start at Coors Field, when he surrendered 10 runs on June 8, 2015.

 In the first game, the Rockies cruised past Jake Arrieta in a 10-4 win.
 
Kyle Freeland (3-2) had one bad stretch in the nightcap. He allowed five runs, three earned, and four hits - all in a second inning that was compounded by two errors. The rookie left-hander finished with four walks and six strikeouts over six innings.
