Jhoulys Chacin showed once again what he can be when he's the strike throwing machine we saw coming up through the minors. The efficient Chacin pitched a full seven innings, throwing just his allotted 75 pitches, 53 of them for strikes, and allowed just one run to the Padres while the Rockies offense backed him up in a 9-1 victory. Chacin gave up just five hits and two walks, while striking out four. His one damaging mistake was a home run given up to Will Venable.

Tyler Colvin doubled, homered and drove in three, and Dexter Fowler hit an insurance grand slam to lead the Rockies offense. For Colvin, the hits extended a six game streak, and he also has nine RBI in the last week. Josh Rutledge had a three hit night for the Rockies, who had 13 hits overall and evened the series with the Padres.

Matt Belisle and Carlos Torres each pitched scoreless innings in relief of Chacin.
