Record-braking 8th inning in the Rockies - Cubs baseball game

It was a wild 8th inning at Coors field in Denver as the Colorado Rockies routed the Chicago Cubs 17-2.

Every Rockies batter got at least one hit in the eighth inning as they a scored record-breaking 12 runs on 11 straight hits - a major league record.

The Rockies batted around twice in the inning.

It took the Cubs 28 minutes to get the final out in the bottom of the 8th inning. The score was 5-2 when the inning began.

And this was only the second win for the Rockies since losing 8 straight games.

No wonder managers turn gray.
