The Cubs find themselves within two games of .500 after winning, 8-5 over Colorado Tuesday. It's the fifth straight win for Lou's crew.
Chicago scored three in the first as Aramis Ramirez knocked in Alfonso Soriano in advance of Cliff Floyd's linedriver homer to the bleachers. In the 2nd, Ted Lilly faced a bases-loaded, no out situation but escaped with only one run scoring.
Koye Hill had a two-run, two-out double to pad the lead late in the game.
