Chatwood (10-6) allowed just one run on three hits in seven innings Friday against the Mets. He walked four and struck out four in the win. Chatwood continued to be flawless on the road, extending his record to 6-0 away from Coors Field this season. Friday's second-inning home run given up to James Loney was the first Chatwood has allowed on the road in 2016. At home, the 26-year-old right-hander is 4-6 with a 5.69 ERA and seven home runs allowed. Unfortunately for Chatwood and his fantasy owners, his next start Thursday is at home against the Dodgers, so projecting another solid performance is questionable at best.
Chatwood struck out six and walked eight across five shutout innings Sunday versus the Braves, earning his ninth win of the season. It was an unconventional start for Chatwood, who only allowed one hit but was pulled after five frames due to his elevated pitch count. Chatwood had endured a couple of rough starts heading into Sunday, so it was a positive sign to see him bounce back at home, despite the slightly alarming command lack of command. He has generally been a stable member of the Rockies rotation this season and will take a 3.65 ERA into Friday's start at the Mets.
Chatwood (8-6) allowed seven runs on eight hits and two walks with one strikeout in just three innings in a loss Tuesday to the Rays. Another start at home, another drubbing. Chatwood has still given up at least three runs in all but one of his home starts. Chatwood's season continues to be a tale of two different pitchers. He has a brilliant 1.89 ERA on the road, but his home ERA is now up to 6.26.
Chatwood (8-5) gave up four earned runs on eight hits and three walks over five innings in Sunday's 10-3 loss to the Phillies. He struck out two. The 26-year-old pitched to contact, notching only five swinging strikes out of the 55 he was credited with on the afternoon. Chatwood was essentially singled to death during his time on the mound, as Cody Asche and Cameron Rupp drove in all four runs against him with RBI hits in the third and fifth innings. Four of Chatwood's five losses have come at Coors Field this season, and he's posted an ERA well over three runs higher at home as well. Despite the struggles, his overall 3.29 ERA is certainly admirable figure for a Rockies pitcher, and he'll look to set a new career high of nine victories in his first post-All-Star break start.
Chatwood allowed two runs (one earned) on three hits and four walks with four strikeouts in five innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the Giants. Chatwood's control was iffy, but otherwise he looked fine in his first start in return from the disabled list. His incredible run away from Coors Field continued, as he has now thrown at least five innings and allowed one earned run or fewer in all but one of his nine road starts this season. Unfortunately, he has allowed three earned runs or more in all but one of his starts at Coors Field.
