Ramirez Comes Through With Walk Off Home Run For Cubs

Last updated on Tuesday, May 18, 2010

(CHICAGO, IL) - Aramis Ramirez hit a game-winning two-run homer in the bottom of the eleventh to give the Chicago Cubs a 4-2 win over the Colorado Rockies.

Starlin Castro opened the Chicago eleventh with a single.

After Derrek Lee lined out to short, Ramirez launched a 1-0 pitch from Rockies reliever Matt Belisle into the left-centerfield bleachers to give the Cubs the victory.

Colorado had tied the game in the eighth when Miguel Olivo drew a bases-loaded walk from Cubs closer Carlos Marmol.

Sean Marshall picked up the win in relief with Belisle taking the loss as the Rockies saw their three-game winning streak come to an end.
