|Tyler Chatwood made his case on Saturday.|
On Saturday night, the Rockies rode the wave of momentum to a 10-2 victory over their achilles heel, the San Francisco Giants. The Rockies got a strong performance from Tyler Chatwood on the mound, the same Tyler Chatwood who was impressive against the Dodgers before being sent out for more seasoning.
The small, flame-throwing right-hander did everything he needed to do to keep the pesky Giants at bay, and give his team a chance to score enough runs against Giants starter Tim Lincecum. Chatwood went 5-2/3 innings, giving up one run on seven hits. He walked four and struck out four. The Giants had plenty of base runners, but Chatwood was able to slam the door shut when he needed to.
Maybe the most impressive part of the start for Chatwood was that he wasn't extremely sharp. He didn't have the command that he did in Los Angeles, yet, he still was able to limit the Giants to just one run.
