Tyler Chatwood crumbles in a wave of walks as Rockies reach a season-high losing skid in L.A.

LOS ANGELES — A quick hook spared Tyler Chatwood the indignity of a dubious personal record Saturday at Dodger Stadium. But the silent exchange between the pitcher and his manager howled of irritation. The Rockies’ 27-year-old veteran right-hander — the intended rock of a rotation aging in reverse with four rookies — walked eight batters. In barely more than three innings...

Jon Gray’s return from injury is just what the Colorado Rockies need

The Rockies don’t need a savior; they need Jon Gray. When news broke after the game on April 13 that Jon Gray’s injury wasn’t simply a nagging toe issue but a stress fracture in his foot, a deep, collective sigh rolled through Rockies’ nation.

Nolan Arenado’s cycle was 17th at Coors, tying Fenway’s record despite 83-year head start

The Colorado Rockies’ home park of Coors Field has long been known for its crazy ballpark effects favoring hitters, even after the 2002 installation of a humidor dialed it down a bit, and the latest example came with Rockies’ third baseman Nolan Arenado’s cycle Sunday (which ended with a dramatic walk-off home run to beat the San Francisco Giants). As @MLBStatOfTheDay tweeted...
