Jonathan Lucroy went 3-for-4 in a loss to the Giants on Wednesday.

All three hits were singles. It's his second three-hit game of the past four games, and Lucroy is now hitting .286/.392/.387 since he came over to the Rockies after disappointing with the Rangers. The only complaint you could possibly have is the lack of pop, but Colorado won't complain about that average and on-base percentage from a premium position.

Tyler Chatwood got the loss on Wednesday, giving up three runs over six innings against the Giants.

Chatwood was excellent against the Padres on Friday, and he wasn't terrible Wednesday; he just didn't have a chance against a surprisingly excellent Matt Moore. He struck out four and walked two. It's unlikely Chatwood would be a member of the Rockies playoff rotation, but he could be a part of their bullpen should the Rockies advance into a five or seven game series.His next start will come Monday against the Marlins.
Sep 20 - 6:48 PM

Carlos Gonzalez is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against San Francisco.

Gonzalez is crushing the ball (1.127 OPS over his last nine games) but Colorado has a lot of mouths to feed in the outfield. Ian Desmond gets the start in left, and Gerado Parra will be in right.
Sep 20 - 4:43 PM

Ian Desmond finished 2-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Tuesday's game in San Francisco.

Desmond posted just his second multi-hit game over the past 18 outings. He entered the game hitting .196 (9-for-46) with two RBI and 13 strikeouts in the month of September, but he has hit safely in five of the past six and might be showing signs of turning things around.
Sep 20 - 3:49 AM

Gerardo Parra finished 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI in Tuesday's road loss against the Giants.

Parra has back-to-back multi-hit games, and he is hitting .355 (11-for-31) with four doubles, a triple and three RBI over his past eight outings to raise his average three points just since Sept. 8.
Sep 20 - 3:46 AM

German Marquez allowed three earned runs, eight hits and a walk with five strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision at San Francisco.

It was Marquez's first quality start of September, as he entered 0-2 with a 6.59 ERA across his first three outings this month. He hasn't won since Aug. 18, and he appears to have hit the wall a while ago after pitching very effectively earlier in the season. He is only worth sticking with in deeper NL-only fantasy leagues down the stretch.
Sep 20 - 3:44 AM

Trevor Story went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI as the Rockies fell to the Padres on Sunday.

Story delivered a two-run double that capped off a three-run fourth inning to give the Rockies an early lead. That would wind up being their only offense in the game however. With the two-hit attack, Story is hitting .235/.307/.447 with 21 homers and 72 RBI.
Sep 17 - 8:42 PM

Jon Gray was outstanding in a no-decision against the Padres on Sunday, striking out seven over five scoreless innings.

Gray allowed just two hits and a walk on the afternoon. The 25-year-old hurler now sports a 3.75 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 99/29 K/BB ratio across 98 1/3 innings. He'll look to replicate this fine effort in a rematch against these same Padres in San Diego on Sunday.
Sep 17 - 8:39 PM

Jonathan Lucroy collected three singles with three runs scored and an RBI in Saturday's victory against the Padres.

Lucroy is on an extended hot streak, going 16-for-50 (.320) with seven RBI in 15 games dating back to Aug. 28, raising his average from .259 to .287. While he has been hot lately, his overall production since coming over to the Rockies has been a little disappointing giving his lack of power and the rarefied air of Denver.
Sep 17 - 1:01 AM

Carlos Gonzalez posted a pair of singles and a two-run home run with two runs scored in Saturday's victory against San Diego.

Gonzalez has really heated up down the stretch. He managed to hit just .221 with 13 doubles, six home runs and 22 RBI in 263 pre-All-Star break at-bats. However, in the second half he is hitting .307 with 16 doubles, seven homers and 32 RBI over just 176 at-bats.
Sep 17 - 12:57 AM

Pat Valaika made his one at-bat count on Saturday against San Diego, swatting a pinch-hit grand slam off of Cory Mazzoni.

Valaika doesn't get a chance to play every day, but when his number is called he answers the bell. He has 10 doubles, 11 homers and 34 RBI over across 170 at-bats over 102 games played.
Sep 17 - 12:53 AM

Charlie Blackmon finished 2-for-4 with a double, a three-run home run and four RBI in Saturday's win against the Padres.

Blackmon needed a big game for his fantasy owners, as he entered just 1-for-18 over his past five games and he hadn't had a game with more than one RBI since Aug. 26. Still, it has been another banner year for Blackmon, who has 35 homers, 93 RBI and a sparkling 1.010 OPS.
Sep 17 - 12:49 AM

Tyler Anderson allowed just two hits with two walks and three strikeouts over six scoreless innings in a victory against the Padres on Saturday.

Anderson has been outstanding in two appearances since returning from a knee injury, going 2-0 while allowing just three hits and two walks with seven strikeouts over 10 scoreless innings. He isn't listed for a start in the upcoming week, so he'll likely work in a long relief role.
Sep 17 - 12:45 AM

The Rockies are pushing back Chad Bettis' next start.

Bettis lasted just one-third of an inning while giving up five runs last time out, so the Rockies will give him some extra rest. Tyler Chatwood is expected to start Wednesday against the Giants while Bettis will return next Saturday against the Padres.
Sep 16 - 5:14 PM

Tyler Chatwood pitched 5 2/3 innings of one-run ball to beat the Padres at Coors Field on Friday.

Chatwood was yanked from the rotation in July because of his struggles at home -- he entered tonight 2-6 with a 6.25 ERA at Coors Field -- so this has to be a confidence booster. He was always one of the Rockies' five-best starters, and he'll almost certainly be in the rotation if the team advances to the NLDS. He'll be a streaming option next week with another start against the Padres, that one slated for San Diego.
