|Tyler Chatwood looks rough|
Chatwood has physical talent but he's not a major-league pitcher, at least not now. That was known to those who payed attention to his body of work in both the majors (7.62 ERA in 13 innings) and Triple-A (5.79 ERA in 37 1/3 innings) earlier this season.
On Sunday, Chatwood threw just 49 percent (38-of-77) of his pitches for strikes in allowing four walks and three runs in 3 1/3 innings.
Of course, he fits in with a pitching staff that proved to be an excellent host to the visiting San Francisco Giants, serving up 35 runs in the three-game series.
|Matt McBride hitting early in Rockies' career|
McBride, who hit for .354 with 36 doubles and 10 homers for Colorado Springs, has struck out three times so he will soon have to learn to make more contact, to at least make the defense field the ball. For now, the outfielder is off to a hot start.
