Giants' Parker injured crashing into left-field wall

Vegas Play of the Day: Rockies at Giants Jon Gray Exits Game vs. San Francisco Giants with Toe Injury

That's enough for me to take the Giants, even though they're 4-6 on the season.

Chatwood bounced back to retire 10 of the final 12 batters he faced, allowing only a seventh-inning single to Joe Panik and a ninth-inning walk to Denard Span.

Either way, the Colorado Rockies shortstop insisted Thursday night, it feels great. "Pitching at 95, 96, 97 (mph) is (Madison) Bumgarner".

Jarrett Parker, who sustained a broken right clavicle while crashing into the left-field wall to make a catch, appears headed for surgery.

The 28-year-old, hitting.143 in nine games this season, robbed Colorado's DJ LeMahieu of a potential extra-base hit in the Rockies' 5-0 win Saturday at San Francisco.

Gray left with a re-aggravated toe injury after allowing one hit in three scoreless innings. The Rockies are also 9-20 in their last 29 road games, are 0-6 in their last six games when playing the third game of a series, and are 0-4 in Chatwood's last four outings when he pitches coming off four days of rest. By that point a year ago, he had blasted seven in a historic rookie-season start. "'I hope you blow it, '" Chatwood recalled.

Gray was removed from a spring training game against the Giants on March 24 with a sore left big toe.

They scored four, six and eight runs in the three wins, but were held to a total of four runs in the three defeats. "You'd like to think tonight was going to happen". Colorado is the only team in baseball that has not had a day off yet. "There's no need to add any unneeded pressure on yourself".

Crawford's homer, his second of the season, gave the Giants a 4-0 lead, an ample cushion for Johnny Cueto.

"He was really down", the manager said. "Good work there in middle/long relief".

Colorado Rockies pitcher Tyler Chatwood, wearing No. 42 in tribute to Jackie Robinson, throws against the San Francisco Giants during the first inning of a baseball game in San Francisco, Saturday, April 15, 2017. "There have been many games like this one".

Senzatela (1-0) has allowed just two runs in his first two starts. He struck out two.

The Giants' top hitting prospect has exceeded expectations in his first week of Triple-A ball. Okert joins Ty Blach as the second left-hander in the Giants bullpen. Manager Bruce Bochy meant to platoon Parker and Williamson to best exploit their batting strengths, but the Giants will need a new left field strategy for the time being. Everybody is paying a little more attention to us.
