Tyler Chatwood allowed three hits over eight scoreless innings and struck out nine Wednesday in beating the Giants.

Chatwood's season ends much like it started. The middle wasn't as pleasant, but he showed what he can do while healthy; he allowed one or no runs in 10 of his 27 starts. What he does need to demonstrate is that he can stay healthy; his 27 starts and 158 innings this season were new career highs.

Tyler Chatwood kept the Dodgers in check in Thursday's no-decision, allowing two runs on five hits over six innings.

Chatwood had some issues with his control in this one, as he walked four and threw just 57 of his 102 pitches for strikes. He pitched well enough for the win and exited with a 4-2 lead, but the Rockies bullpen imploded like an imperfectly made submarine after he left the game, surrendering five runs in the seventh inning and ultimately falling by a final score of 7-4. The 26-year-old right-hander will bring a 4.08 ERA and 1.41 WHIP into a road showdown with the Giants in his final start of the season.

Tyler Chatwood was hit hard for seven runs over five innings in a no-decision against the Padres on Friday.

Chatwood limited the Padres to one run in 6 2/3 innings in San Diego last weekend, but Coors Field wasn’t as kind to him. He gave up eight hits (including two homers) while walking a pair. He’s now 4-9 with a 6.12 ERA at home this season. Fortunately, his next start comes on the road against the Dodgers next week.

Tyler Chatwood pitched 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball and went 2-for-3 with a two-run triple to lead the Rockies to a 4-1 win over the Padres on Friday.

It was his first career triple and first extra-base hit of this season; he was 6-for-34 at the plate entering the night. Chatwood got the job done on the mound, too, as he typically has away from Coors Field this year. He's 11-9 with a 3.82 ERA, which includes a 7-1 mark and a 1.77 ERA in 11 road outings. He's 4-8 with a 5.67 ERA in 13 starts at home.

Tyler Chatwood got roughed up for six runs -- five earned -- in five innings of work in a loss to the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

He surrendered seven hits and one base-on-balls while fanning three. Most of the damage came in the third inning when he gave up a three-run double to Welington Castillo that was immediately followed by a two-run homer off the bat of Jake Lamb. Chatwood has been surprisingly effective this year despite the altitude, but most of his success came early in the year. He had a 3.29 ERA in the first half of the season and a 5.12 ERA in the second half. Overall he sits at 10-8 with a 3.94 ERA in 132 1/3 innings.

Rockies activated RHP Tyler Chatwood from the 15-day disabled list.

Tyler Chatwood (back) played catch on Saturday.

It's the first time he's thrown since he was placed on the disabled list last week with mid-back spasms. "I just played catch from 75 feet," Chatwood said. "I already feel a lot better, and the spasms have calmed down." Chatwood missed two starts earlier this season with a similar injury and is probably looking at a similar timetable this time around.

Rockies placed RHP Tyler Chatwood on the 15-day disabled list with an upper back injury.

Chatwood began experiencing upper back tightness during his last start Sunday against the Phillies, in which he yielded six earned runs over just four innings. The right-hander has been pretty good overall this year, holding a 3.75 ERA in 22 starts. It's tough news for a team trying to gain ground in the National League Wild Card race.

Tyler Chatwood experienced upper back tightness during Sunday's loss to the Phillies.

Chatwood labored through four innings in the ballgame. Walking five and giving up six hits. Depending on how he feels the next few days could determine if he's able to make his next start.

Tyler Chatwood allowed six earned runs over four innings Sunday in the Rockies' loss to the Phillies.

Chatwood walked five and gave up six hits, including a Jimmy Paredes home run in the bottom of the fourth inning. The right-hander now stands 10-8 with a 3.75 ERA and 1.39 WHIP through 22 starts this season. He has issued 58 walks in 127 1/3 innings.

Tyler Chatwood held the Rangers to two earned runs over 6 2/3 innings Tuesday but took a no-decision.

Colorado's bullpen allowed five runs to blow the lead for Chatwood and the Rockies' offense. Chatwood struck out eight, walked none, and scattered five hits over his 6 2/3 frames. He'll carry a 10-7 record and 3.58 ERA into his next start on the road against the Phillies.

Tyler Chatwood allowed four runs on nine hits over six innings in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers.

Chatwood struck out six and walked three on the evening, and a Corey Seager solo home run was among his nine hits allowed. Despite the subpar outing, Chatwood's numbers remain solid despite starting half his games at Coors, as the right-hander is 10-7 with a 3.63 ERA in 20 starts overall. His assignment doesn't get any easier Tuesday, though, when the Rangers come to town.

Tyler Chatwood spun seven innings of one-run ball in a 6-1 win over the Mets on Friday.

While he walked four batters, the only damage came on a solo homer from James Loney in the second inning. Perhaps Chatwood should change his nickname to Hawk or Animal, because he’s a Road Warrior. He now owns a 1.30 ERA through nine starts on the road this season. Not surprisingly, he hasn’t been nearly as effective at home, where he has a 5.69 ERA in 10 starts. He gets the Dodgers at Coors Field next week.

Tyler Chatwood walked eight batters but held the Braves scoreless over five innings Sunday for his ninth win of the season.

That pretty much sums up the current state of the Atlanta offense. Chatwood threw just 51 of his 97 pitches for strikes and put nine batters on base, but the Braves couldn't manage a run until the top of the seventh inning and fell 7-2. Chatwood stands 9-6 with a 3.65 ERA, 1.37 WHIP, and 66/46 K/BB ratio in 103 2/3 innings this season. He'll take on the Mets at home next.
