Nolan Arenado's return from his five-game suspension and 3-for-4 game at the plate was hardly enough for the Colorado Rockies Friday night. They fell to the Chicago Cubs, 16-5.

Rockies starter Jon Gray gave up seven runs, five earned, in his five innings of work. Reliever Bryan Shaw then surrendered five runs in two-thirds of an inning.

Arenado hit a two-run home run in the first inning. He finished with three hits and two RBIs. RYa McMahon had two hits and scored a pair of runs.

The Rockies and Cubs play game two of the series on Saturday. Coverage starts with Rockies All-Access at 4:05 p.m. MDT on KOA NewsRadio 850 AM and 94.1 FM.
