Tyler Chatwood, Colorad Rockies Shut Down Giants

For now, it's unclear if Gray will miss more than one or two starts - the Rockies haven't called up another starting pitcher yet, instead opting to add another relief arm in Shane Carle. The Rockies won 5-0. It was Marrero's 144th at-bat in a major league career that goes back to 2011. The Rockies right-hander carried a ideal game into the sixth inning before polishing off a two-hitter. He threw 67 of 105 pitches for strikes in his second complete game in 91 major league starts. He finished the game a triple short of the cycle, going 3-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored.

"He wanted to play tonight", Bochy said. The Giants left fielder spent 11 seasons languishing in the minors, racking up 4,005 at-bats in places like Potomac, Hagerstown and Somerset. He cruised, throwing just 93 pitches (62 for strikes) through eight innings of work.

From an outside perspective, I could see Rusin getting the start next week at Chavez Ravine and sticking in the rotation while getting some experience for either Hoffman or Marquez out of the bullpen where manager Bud Black can pick and choose the right situations for their development.

Gray's injury, which forced him to exit the fourth inning of Thursday's series opener against the Giants, seemed to be the same ailment he suffered late in spring training, a simple aggravation of a bruised left big toe.

A day after losing Jon Gray to the disabled list, Chatwood reminded people exactly what he can bring to the table.

Giants: C Buster Posey is lifting weights and doing some cardio workouts as he recovers from concussion symptoms.

Gray is viewed as a key cog in Colorado's effort to get back to the postseason for the first time since 2009.

"You know you're all in when you make a play like that."
It is the worst start to a season for Bumgarner, a four-time All-Star, since he went 0-6 in his first eight starts in 2011.

Chatwood (1-2) struck out four and walked one, lowering his ERA from 6.35 ERA to 3.54.

Tyler Chatwood pitched 5 2/3 flawless innings before Chris Marrero's single and finished with a two-hitter for the Colorado Rockies in his first big league shutout, a 5-0 win over the San Francisco Giants on Saturday. Needing only 4 strikeouts in 9 innings, the Rockie right-hander relied nearly exclusively on ground balls in the early going to work his way to win number one on the season, 5-0 at AT&T Park.
