"He was really down", the manager said.
In all, Cueto allowed two runs on six hits, with one walk and six strikeouts.
Chatwood (1-2), who had the best ERA (0.69) of all pitchers with two more starts at AT&T Park last season, was better than ever in his first 2017 visit. He has a triple and two RBIs on the year, but will be sidelined for the foreseeable future.
It's clear that Bruce Bochy values versatility on defense, and the Giants are making sure their top prospects are comfortable fielding multiple positions. "You go out there and do your job". But we came up short. Moore, meanwhile, allowed a single run on just three hits while striking out five batters during Monday's win over the Diamondbacks. Yet Friday's announcement that Jon Gray would be out of action for at least a month meant that the bullpen-to-be-nicknamed-later might be leaned on even more heavily this month. He struck out eight. He's going to miss some time.
"All you can do it control what you can control", Bumgarner said.
"You think about those moments when you start playing baseball", he said. Colorado is the only team in baseball that has not had a day off yet. "There's no need to be adding any unneeded pressure on yourself".More news: Bucks to face Raptors in Game 1 of the NBA Playoffs
Mark Reynolds had two hits and scored twice to lead the Rockies offense.
In the second inning Thursday, Gray fielded a high chopper from the Giants' Eduardo Nunez.
Shortstop Brandon Crawford was not in the starting lineup for the Giants after driving to Los Angeles on Wednesday night with his wife, Jalynne, to join her family after the death of her oldest sister.
"The first two outings I didn't feel like I threw the ball bad, but I gave up homers that killed me", Chatwood said.
Rusin (1-0) and three fellow relievers teamed to limit the Giants to four hits the rest of the way, with closer Greg Holland surviving a bases-loaded jam in a scoreless ninth for his sixth save. The injury occurred when Parker crashed into the left field wall on a fourth-inning catch, forcing him to leave the game.
The Giants will aim for a series split tomorrow afternoon with a fourth game by the bay. Bochy said he's optimistic Posey will be able to return April 18 when he comes off the disabled list. "Honestly, I've been saying I'm ready to play but (trainers) said it can feel good but it still might not be healed.". He went 10-10 with a 4.61 ERA in 29 starts previous year, though his FIP (3.60) was almost a full run lower than his ERA, per Baseball Reference.
