Last updated on Tuesday, June 28, 2011

(CHICAGO, IL) - Carlos Pena and Aramis Ramirez homered two times each to lead the Chicago Cubs past the Colorado Rockies 7-3 in a makeup of a game rained out in April.

Both Pena and Ramirez hit two-run homers and solo shots and drove in three runs apiece. Colorado's Carlos Gonzalez also homered twice, hitting a pair of solo blasts off cubs starter Matt Garza.

Garza pitched into the eighth inning, allowing three runs on five hits to improve to 4-and-6. Rockies starter Jhoulys Chacin allowed six runs in his five innings of work and took the loss, falling to 8-and-5.
