Game Wrap: Rockies 5, Giants 0

The Rockies finally solved AT&T Park in impressive fashion Friday night, shutting out the Giants 5-0. Tyler Chatwood was phenomenal and Michael Cuddyer provided a huge boost in his return from the DL.

It was a dominating game in every fashion for the Rockies. They scored two runs in the first inning on an opposite field double from Michael Cuddyer and never looked back.

Tyler Chatwood delivered yet another impressive performance, holding the Giants to just four hits in six scoreless innings of work. His ERA now sits at 1.90 and he is making a legitimate claim to stay in the Rockies rotation long term. Outman and Belisle both worked perfect innings and Lopez finished it off to preserve the shutout.

Cuddyer led the offensive charge as he delivered three RBIs, including a solo home run in the sixth, his eighth of the year. Carlos Gonzalez hit his 12th of the year and D.J. LeMahieu had an RBI single.

The Rockies played well defensively highlighted by several dazzling plays from Nolan Arenado. Arenado has played tremendous defense since being called up and tonight was arguably his best game in that category.

A great win for the Rockies tonight and one that they can hopefully build on tomorrow.
