TODAY'S WRAPS: June 25, 2007
Cubs rock in walk-off win
Francis shaky in opener
Jeff Francis allowed 10 hits -- five to Cubs' second baseman Mike Fontenot -- as he gave up six hits in five innings. The Rockies made it exciting in the ninth, capped with Troy Tulowitzki's go-ahead three-run homer, but the Cubs launched their own rally in the bottom of the inning.

Series at a glance:
Marquis solid despite 'pen
Jason Marquis was in line for his first win since May 9, but a bullpen meltdown in the ninth inning erased his 5 2/3 innings against the Rockies. Despite the rally by the visitors, the fans at Wrigley were thrilled in the bottom of the ninth when Alfonso Soriano's walk-off single won it.
