Rockies Silence Giants

COL 5  SF 0
Matt Moore didn't have it this afternoon in San Francisco but it mattered little as Rockies starter Tyler Chatwood most certainly did and he kept the Giants quiet. In the 6th Chris Marrero got a single with two outs, that was a big moment as Chatwood had retired the first 17, mostly on weak ground balls. Joe Panik led off the 7th with a single, and Denard Span walked to open the 9th but that was it. Chatwood gets his first career 9-inning complete game and first career shutout. He stifled the Giants last September in Game 158 with 8 shutout innings and only three hits allowed. Chatwood, it should be noted, is a double TJS survivor. Nolan Arenado, naturally, had three hits including a homer. The final line on Moore was 10 hits and five runs in 5-2/3 IP. On the bright side Neil Ramirez had a good outing in relief (four batters, two strikeouts) and both George Kontos and rookie Ty Blach pitched scoreless frames.

Jeff Samardzija gets the call on Easter Sunday at 1:05.



p.s. Jarrett Parker made a great play in LF but injured himself, breaking his clavicle. Tough blow for the club, the outfield situation was already uncertain, we'll see who gets the call.

Chris Marrero, subbing for Parker, got the first Giants hit. Although you don't want to see anyone hurt, it would be something to see Marrero take this opportunity and make left field his.
