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.

DJ LeMahieu went 1-for-4 with three strikeouts in Tuesday's loss to the Giants.

LeMahieu simply couldn't square up Matt Moore, though the same could be said for just about everybody on the Rockies. For the season, the 28-year-old second baseman is slashing .349/.418/.496 with 11 homers, 66 RBI and 11 steals over 550 at-bats. This has been a career-year for LeMahieu in a number of statistical categories, including home runs, RBI and batting average.
Sep 28 - 1:31 AM

German Marquez was hit hard in Tuesday's loss to the Giants, surrendering six runs on 12 hits over 4 1/3 innings.

Oh dear. The Giants scored solitary runs off Marquez in the first and third innings before finally busting through for a big frame in the fifth. Among the damage in the frame, back-to-back solo home runs by Buster Posey and Hunter Pence. Prior to Tuesday's meltdown, the 21-year-old right-hander had pitched well enough in his first taste of major league ball, allowing four runs on 10 hits over 10 1/3 innings. He remains a work-in-progress. As currently scheduled, Marquez will have one little sip of October air when he starts against the Brewers in Sunday's regular-season finale.

David Dahl clobbered a solo homer on Sunday as the Rockies fell to the Dodgers in Los Angeles.

Dahl's solo blast off of Dodgers' closer Kenley Jansen gave the Rockies a 3-2 lead in the ninth inning, but it would prove to be short-lived. The homer was Dahl's lone hit in four at-bats on the afternoon. He has acclimated himself well to big league pitching thus far, slashing .315/.357/.500 with seven homers and 23 RBI.

Tyler Anderson logged a quality start in a no-decision against the Dodgers on Sunday, surrendering two runs on 10 hits over 6 1/3 innings.

The left-hander walked two and struck out only one batter on the afternoon. The Dodgers scratched out a run against him in the third inning and then tied the score with Corey Seager's RBI triple in the seventh. Anderson has done a really nice job in the Rockies rotation this season, compiling a 3.54 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and a 99/28 K/BB ratio over 114 1/3 innings. He'll wrap up his season on Saturday against the Brewers.
Sep 25 - 8:12 PM

Chad Bettis was demolished for seven runs -- five earned -- over 4 2/3 innings in a loss to the Dodgers on Saturday.

He can't blame this one on Coors Field either. He struggled to throw strikes, walking four on 105 pitches in the short and ugly outing. He gave up eight hits and struck out three. Bettis gave up four runs in the second inning, two more in the fourth and was chased after giving up an RBI single to opposing pitcher Clayton Kershaw in the fifth. His record falls to 13-8 with a 4.92 ERA in 179 1/3 innings.
Sep 25 - 12:52 AM

Nolan Arenado went 2-for-3 in a lopsided loss to the Dodgers on Saturday.

The Rockies predictably couldn't get anything going against Clayton Kershaw. Both of Arenado's hits were singles. He is having another fantastic season. He is rocking a .294 batting average with 40 home runs, 129 RBI and 112 runs scored. He is still only 25 years old.
Sep 25 - 12:27 AM

Carlos Gonzalez is not in the Rockies' lineup Saturday against the Dodgers.

Gerardo Parra will fill in at right field and bat fifth. It's a convenient night for Gonzalez to take a breather, as he holds a .199 career average in 36 at-bats against Clayton Kershaw.
Sep 24 - 7:16 PM

DJ LeMahieu is not in the Rockies' lineup Saturday against the Dodgers.

He's just getting a routine day off. LeMahieu has had a career year for the Rockies and is on the cusp of winning his first batting title. Rookie Pat Valaika will draw the start at second base Saturday while batting seventh against Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw.
Sep 24 - 7:11 PM

Jon Gray fanned 10 while giving up four runs in four innings Friday in a loss to the Dodgers.

Gray is the fifth pitcher ever to strike out 10 while working four innings of less. All five of those outings have come since 2013. Along with the 10 K's, Gray have up two homers and three walks to the 19 batters he faced. He also hit a batter. It took him 106 pitches to get through those four innings. Considering his workload this year, he probably should have been pulled earlier.
Sep 24 - 2:48 AM

Nolan Arenado hit his 40th homer Friday against the Dodgers.

Arenado has 40 homers and 129 RBI right now after finishing with 42 homers and 130 RBI last year. Where he's grown as a player is in the walk department; he's taken 55 unintentional walks this year and finishing with just 21 in 2014.
Sep 24 - 2:45 AM

Gerardo Parra (illness) is not in the Rockies starting like for Friday's game against the Dodgers.

Parra was a late scratch from Thursday's lineup due to an illness. It's unclear if Friday's absence is related to him still feeling under the weather, or it's simply a product of the matchup against left-hander Scott Kazmir. He's still considered day-to-day.
Sep 23 - 6:46 PM

D.J. LeMahieu went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers.

LeMahieu connected for a solo shot off Brett Anderson with one out in the fifth inning. The tater was his 11th of the season. In addition, the 28-year-old second baseman is hitting .352/.422/.503 and has driven in 66 runs over 537 at-bats. He has put forth two-hit showings in three of his last four games.
Sep 23 - 1:14 AM

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.
Sep 23 - 1:09 AM

Gerardo Parra was scratched from the Rockies starting lineup on Thursday due to an illness.

Stephen Cardullo replaced him at first base and will bat seventh for the Rockies against Brett Anderson and the Dodgers on Thursday. Parra should be considered day-to-day.
