Rockies Release Starting Pitcher Jhoulys Chacin

Rockies Release Starting Pitcher Jhoulys Chacin Jason Wise/MLB Photos via Getty Images(SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.) -- In a move that has surprised many around Major League Baseball, the Colorado Rockies have released starting pitcher Jhoulys Chacin. "It's a tough day," manager Walt Weiss said. "A tough day for us, for me having to have that conversation with Jhoulys, who has been a warrior for us." At one point during his career, Chacin was the Rockies' top starting pitcher, but his performance has declined in recent seasons. Limited to just 11 starts in 2014, Chacin went just 1-7 with a 5.40 ERA, which was the worst mark of his career. "We just felt like Jhoulys was behind a few of the other guys," Weiss added. The Rockies were hoping to see the Chacin of old during spring training, but that didn't happen. He posted a 6.52 ERA in four Cactus League Starts. In six seasons with the Rockies, Chacin went 38-48 with a 3.78 ERA. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Rockies Reward Pitcher Jorge De La Rosa with Contract Extension

Rockies Reward Pitcher Jorge De La Rosa with Contract Extension Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Colorado Rockies were not about to let starting pitcher Jorge De La Rosa hit free agency as the two sides have agreed on contract extension. De La Rosa's new deal is for two years and will pay him $25 million. The 33-year-old De La Rosa has been with the Rockies since 2008 and he has proven to be a solid, reliable starting pitcher during his time with the team. Last season, De La Rosa had arguably the best season of his 11-year career as he went 16-6 with a 3.49 ERA. This season, he hasn't had quite as much success as he's 13-10 with a 4.26 ERA in 28 starts. The Rockies are a pitching starved franchise. They rank near the top in most offensive categories in Major League Baseball, but dead last in Major League Baseball in team ERA. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Dickerson’s Heroics Lead Rockies to Walk-Off Win

Dickerson’s Heroics Lead Rockies to Walk-Off Win Rob Carr/Getty Images(DENVER) -- Corey Dickerson hit a solo home run in the bottom of the ninth, tying the game at 4-4, and drove in the winning run in the 13th as Colorado beat Miami 5-4 on Saturday night. It's the sixth walk-off win of the season for the Rockies (51-77). "Last night, bases loaded, same guy and I swung first pitch on a sinker and grounded out," Dickerson said of the hit that came off Sam Dyson, who bested him on Friday. "I kind of wanted to see a pitch and I wanted to get a pitch up. He threw a ball down like last night, and I think he hung a changeup or a slider up and in." It was a back-and-forth affair that saw four lead changes. The Marlins (64-64) took a 1-0 third inning lead on a Giancarlo Stanton double before the Rockies scored three runs in the bottom half of the frame. Brandon Byrnes gave Colorado the lead with a two-run homer after the tying run came home on a double-play ball. Miami later tied the game in the fifth before taking a lead in the top of the ninth thanks to Adeiny Hechavarria's RBI single. Closer Steve Cishek blew his fourth save of the year when Dickerson launched a 455-foot blast to the third deck before sealing the deal in the 13th.

Rockies Sweep Doubleheader with Reds in Dramatic Fashion

Rockies Sweep Doubleheader with Reds in Dramatic Fashion Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(DENVER) -- On a day where Todd Helton had his number 17 retired, the first player to receive the honor in franchise history, the Colorado Rockies swept a doubleheader against Cincinnati in dramatic fashion. Colorado (49-75) took game one by a 10-9 final before winning the nightcap 10-5. The Rockies Trailed 9-5 heading into the bottom of the ninth in the first contest but rallied to score five runs in the inning. Aroldis Chapman walked four consecutive batters to start the inning before J.J. Hoover replaced him. Wilin Rosario's sacrifice fly made it a 9-7 game with one out and two on. Following a Charlie Blackmon fly out, Drew Stubbs took a 1-0 pitch and hammered it to deep center for a walk-off, three-run home run against his former team. Rex Brothers (4-5) got the win while Hoover (1-9) was saddled with the loss. Colorado's dramatics carried over into the second game where they again came from behind. The Reds (61-63) led 5-2 at the seventh inning stretch, but the Rockies scored three runs to knot things up. They took the lead in the eighth on Corey Dickerson's two-run double and added to it with a two-base hit from Michael Cuddyer. Cuddyer's double was his fourth hit of the game and completed his second ever cycle. The outfielder tripled in the first, homered in the fifth, and singled in the seventh before the eighth inning triple. Cuddyer became the seventh Rockies player ever to hit for the cycle, and the first since Carlos Gonzalez in 2010 against the Chicago Cubs. His first cycle came as a member of the Minnesota Twins against Milwaukee in 2009. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio  

Johnny Cueto First to 15 Wins

Johnny Cueto First to 15 Wins Jason Wise/MLB Photos via Getty Images(DENVER) -- Kris Negron singled home Ramon Santiago in the top of the ninth inning to give Cincinnati a 3-2 lead over Colorado, and make Johnny Cueto the first 15-game winner in the Major Leagues. Cueto (15-6) pitched a full eighth innings and is now 7-0 since his last loss back on July 2. It did not start off well for Cueto or the Reds (61-61) as Nolan Arenado hit a solo home run in the bottom of the first to give the Rockies (47-75) an early lead. Cincinnati countered with runs in the third and fourth, taking the lead on a Santiago RBI single in the top of the fourth. That would last until Corey Dickerson doubled in the sixth to plate Justin Morneau and tie the game at 2-2. Cueto continued to keep his team in the ballgame using a devastating combination of his cutter and four-seam fastball. The righty allowed just six hits in the outing with six strikeouts, helping the Reds snap a three-game losing streak.  After Negron gave Cincinnati the lead in the top of the ninth, Aroldis Chapman picked up his 26th save in 28 tries.  Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Rockies Starting Pitcher Brett Anderson Out for the Rest of the Season Robert Binder/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The injuries continue to pile up for the Colorado Rockies. The latest injury to hit the team is starting pitcher Brett Anderson, who will miss the remainder of the 2014 season to repair a disk in his lower back. He will undergo surgery to fix the issue, and will sit out to rest of the year. This a tough break for Anderson, who was enjoying success in his first season with the Rockies. He had spent the first five seasons of his career with the Oakland Athletics. Despite his talent, Anderson has had trouble staying on the field due to health. The year 2009, his rookie season, was the only season the 26-year-old Anderson was able to make at least 30 starts. Aside from his rookie year, Anderson has never been able to make more than 19 starts in a season. In eight starts this season, Anderson went 1-3 with a 2.91 era and a 1.32 WHIP. Despite the injury, Anderson is expected to be ready for spring training. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio 

Troy Tulowitzki Is Tired of Losing

Troy Tulowitzki Is Tired of Losing Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki has begun to take swings as he makes his return to the lineup. Tulowitzki was hurt after running out for a ground ball last month in Pittsburgh and has seen his team fall to last in the National League. The Rockies have dropped their last nine out of ten games. "I think that's why I came out numerous times and said I want to win," Tulowitzki told the Denver Post on Wednesday. "It doesn't mean I want out of here. It means I'm sick and tired of losing." Before the injury, Tulowitzki was putting up fantastic numbers leading baseball in batting average (.340) and on-base percentage (.432) while scoring 71 runs, hitting 21 homers and knocking in 52 runs. "Something needs to change. Hopefully that comes fairly quickly," Tulowitzki continued. "You can't force it. But at the same time, we're all frustrated with this year -- especially me." "I don't see any quit," Tulowitzki added. "They come out here and play hard every single day. We've had some deficits we've overcome. And I think we would have (team) meetings if we didn't sense that. We're playing hard. And (manager) Walt (Weiss) has said the same thing." Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Rockies Shortstop Troy Tulowitzki Wants to Play for a Contender Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki is in the midst of an MVP caliber season. In his prime, Tulowitzki has expressed his desire to play for a contending team, whether that's with the Rockies or not. Entering Sunday, Tulowitzki leads the National League in batting average at .350 and is second in home runs at 18. Now in his ninth season, Tulowitzki doesn't want to become like his former teammate, Todd Helton. “In Todd Helton, there’s someone who’s easy to look at his career here and how it played out. I have the utmost respect for Todd, but at the same time, I don’t want to be the next in line as somebody who was here for a long time and didn’t have a chance to win every single year,” said Tulowitzki. “He played in a couple postseason games and went to one World Series. But that’s not me. I want to be somewhere where there’s a chance to be in the playoffs every single year.” Tulowitzki has spent his entire career with the Rockies.

Kershaw’s Scoreless Streak up to 36 innings

Kershaw’s Scoreless Streak up to 36 innings Dustin Bradford/Getty Images(DENVER, Colo.) -- Clayton Kershaw continued his torrid performance on the mound by throwing eight shutout innings on Friday night in Colorado. The southpaw has now extended his career-high scoreless innings streak to 36 in a row. "You don't ever want to give up a run," Kershaw casually said. "I guess that's the goal." The Dodger ace gave up just two hits in a 9-0 rout of the Rockies. He was supplied with more than enough offense as Los Angeles score three runs in the first inning. Yasiel Puig opened the scoring with a two-run homer in the first.  Kershaw last allowed in the third inning at Arizona on June 13. The Major League record, 59 consecutive scoreless inning,  is held by former Dodger Orel Hershiser. Of the 36 scoreless innings tossed by Kershaw, he has thrown 17 of those frames against the Rockies.  Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Kershaw No-Hits Rockies

Kershaw No-Hits Rockies Victor Decolongon/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Clayton Kershaw can add another feather to his cap: the 26-year-old Los Angeles Dodgers left-hander no-hit the Colorado Rockies Wednesday night, as the Dodgers blanked the Rockies 8-0. Kershaw, who already is a two-time Cy Young Award winner, struck out a career-high 15 while walking none. He becomes the first pitcher ever to strikeout that many batters without allowing a walk. The Dodgers' ace almost had the perfect game. In the seventh inning shortstop Hanley Ramirez fielded a Corey Dickerson grounder and threw wide to first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, allowing Dickerson to get on base. The play was ruled a throwing error and was the only blemish in Kershaw's 107 pitch masterpiece. While Dickerson was the only man to get on base, he also ended the game when he struck out swinging sending the crowd at Dodger Stadium wild. "To get to do it in front of this crowd with how excited they were, and how into it they were is pretty special," Kershaw said. The no-hitter is the second of the season for the Dodgers. Josh Beckett threw one in Philadelphia on May 25. It's the first time since 1956 two Dodgers pitchers threw a no-hitter in the same season. "I am so amazed," Kershaw said. "Beckett told me he was going to teach me how to do that, so I have Josh to thank." Kershaw's no-hitter is the 22nd in Dodgers history. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio
