Cueto pitches 7 innings as Giants beat Rockies 8-2

Cueto pitches 7 innings as Giants beat Rockies 8-2

For now, it's unclear if Gray will miss more than one or two starts - the Rockies haven't called up another starting pitcher yet, instead opting to add another relief arm in Shane Carle. Cueto won his sixth straight decision against the Rockies.

The Venezuelan had done nothing in spring training to indicate such a brilliant start to his major-league career was coming. The Rockies right-hander carried a ideal game into the sixth inning before polishing off a two-hitter. Chatwood pitched his first shutout and second complete game. Carlos Blackmon and DJ LeMahieu combined to go 3-for-8 on Friday with two strikeouts. Raisel Iglesias (1-0) allowed one run in two innings as manager Bryan Price used five relievers after Finnegan's early departure. "Honestly, I've been saying I'm ready to play but (trainers) said it can feel good but it still might not be healed.".

Rockies: Tyler Anderson starts the second game of the four-game series in San Francisco. He cruised, throwing just 93 pitches (62 for strikes) through eight innings of work. "I'm definitely frustrated, I made a couple of bad pitches out there but I don't know if it's necessarily because of that", he said. When he was pulled, the thought was that he had tweaked the toe injury that he had suffered during the spring, but Harding notes that it is in fact a "navicular stress fracture" that has landed Gray in a walking boot.

Marquez has tossed a total of two innings with Triple-A Albuquerque this season and those both came in relief on April 10, although he is listed on the team's website as the starter for today's game against Tacoma. OF Gerardo Parra was placed on three-day paternity leave. UP NEXT Rockies: RHP Tyler Chatwood is searching for his first win after going 0-2 with a 6.35 ERA in his first two starts.

Giants: C Buster Posey is lifting weights and doing some cardio workouts as he recovers from concussion symptoms.

According to manager Bruce Bochy, the surgery won't end Parker's season, but it will sideline him for eight weeks. Last season's 2-0 win orchestrated by Chatwood in San Francisco on September 29 not only put the Rockies into the victory column but also assured Chatwood of a Rockies-record 1.69 road ERA in 2016. He went 10-10 with a 4.61 ERA in 29 starts a year ago, though his FIP (3.60) was almost a full run lower than his ERA, per Baseball Reference.
