Colorado's Marquez has no-hitter through 6 innings vs. Cubs

Rockies: RHP German Marquez (0-2, 7.31) has an 11.70 ERA in two home starts this season. The Rockies bench gave him an ovation.

Greg Holland closed out the game with his 14th save in 14 chances.

CARDINALS 6, MARLINS 5: Pinch hitter Dexter Fowler singled home the tiebreaking run in the ninth inning, and the Cardinals rallied from a late four-run deficit for their fifth consecutive victory. With two outs and facing an 0-2 count, Marquez singled to drive in Mark Reynolds and Paul Valaika for a 3-0 lead.

Mark Reynolds singled to lead off the inning, it was the third time he had reached base in the game having accrued a pair of walks earlier in the game.

Lackey was 0-2 with a 9.18 ERA in three previous starts at Coors Field. The game was delayed for about 75 minutes before being called.

A hail of a spring storm wiped out Monday night's game between the Rockies and Chicago Cubs at Coors Field.

Marquez found himself in a tight spot in the eighth with two on and one out. "There's some resiliency where he hung in there and got through it when he's probably not pitching how we've seen him overall", Black said.

Wolters' health improving. Catcher Tony Wolters (head injury) took swings in a batting cage Wednesday for the first time since going on the seven-day concussion protocol list last Wednesday. "There are no symptoms".

"I'm here, you know, I want to have good at-bats; I want to produce offensively. Ready to get out there", Wolters said.

The Colorado Rockies look to stay hot after winning five of their last seven games.

"The reality is we can't take anything for granted and right now, I feel like we do", Montero told reporters following Tuesday afternoon's 10-4 loss to the Rockies in Game 1 of a split doubleheader. Instead, pitcher Dylan Floro was sent back to Triple-A Iowa. With throwing errors by Trevor Story and DJ LeMahieu, the Cubs scored two of their five runs.

The Chicago Cubs needed someone to come forward and stop their season-high-tying four-game losing streak, so John Lackey stepped up to the plate. At 22-13, the Rockies are off to the best start through 35 games in franchise history.
