2011 Colorado Rockies Game #47: Joe Saunders vs. Jhoulys Chacin

New, 564 comments

This is a game the Rockies *should* win. They are facing a winless lefty with way too many walks, way too few strikeouts, and a problem with home runs. He is one of just six MLB starters with a FIP and ERA over 5.00, and in his only career start at Coors Field, he was chased in the third inning after allowing seven runs (four earned). And this season, there was this:

Joe Saunders

The Rockies send out Jhoulys Chacin, the second head of their quiet two-headed monster this season. The right-hander is 3-1 in six career appearances with a 2.01 ERA against Arizona in his career. Both that ERA and wins mark is his best against any MLB with at least two appearances.
