Best Rockies Pitching Perfomances at Coors? Most Dominate Games by Whole Team?

Friday night saw Tyler Chatwood throw 7 innings of 2 hit, 1 walk, 1 unearned run in just 88 pitches, followed by Chad Bettis and Matt Belisle throwing perfect innings in just 11 pitches each. Had Arenado not had a very poor error in the 5th which was followed by 2 solid singles and the unearned run, Tyler might have gone to the 6th without a hit allowed, and without a runner on first, maybe he throws differently. Regardless, what do you think is the best pitching performance by the Rockies at Coors in their history? Where does this one rate?

 

And the game was more than just the pitching. With great 2 out hitting, great bench play, and just flat dominating, I am wondering if this might be the most dominating team effort at home by the Rockies?

 

Your thoughts?  Which games would you nominate?

Dang, I was going to nominate Mark Bronson’s 4-hit CG shutout of the 102-60 Astros in his major league debut…but I see that it was in Houston. It was a great game and I remember how many times they kept showing his mother in the crowd. Too bad it was the only decent outing of his career.

I believe it was the seventh time in franchise history that the Rox pitchers threw two or less hits in a game at Coors Field.

Funny I thought the Brownson game was at home too. Guy didn’t have much of a career but for one night he was Roger Clemens.

Thing about last night is how effortless the whole thing was. And enjoyable!

I saw Sunny Kim pitch a 3-hit shutout in late September Sunday afternoon in 2005 at Coors — may have been the last home game of a lost season? That’s the most completely in command Rockies pitcher at Coors I’ve ever seen. Jamey Wright said “the best game I’ve ever seen pitched at Coors.” I thought maybe we’d found a gem in the “other Kim” (we also had the unfortunate Byung Hyun Kim as a starter episode that year.) But… Read more »

Dr. C., I think there was also a game in 2006 in Seattle (so obviously it doesn’t count in response to your question) where the immortal Josh Fogg — “Josh the Giant Slayer” — faced the minimum 27 batters over 9 innings. One of my favorite sabermetric lines (from Voros McCracken) is this: “Pretty much anyone can hit pretty much anything over 60 plate appearances.” Which explains a lot of the .400 starts we see every year. You could also… Read more »
