You are probably more surprised at how bad the Rockies pitching has been. In this span of losing 10 out of their last 11 (and the one win was a 1-0 win), the Rockies pitching has been atrocious.
In that span, they are pitching to a 5.81 ERA. The other concerning number is that they are allowing 4.5 walks per nine innings.
They are, arguably, these three starts.
- Freeland: April 2 v. Tampa Bay (4 2/3 IP, 3 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 4 BB, 10 K) (this is a debatable one because it’s decent numbers besides the walks and innings)
- Gray: April 6 v. Dodgers (6 IP, 8 H, 5 R/ER, 2 BB, 4 K)
- Freeland: April 8 v. Atlanta (5 IP, 7 H, 7 R/ER, 4 BB, 3 K)
Each Freeland, Marquez, and Gray have made three starts thus far so, arguably, a third of their starts have been subpar. The main problem for Gray, as you probably know by now, is that he allows home runs … a lot. In fact, on Thursday, he extended his streak (the longest streak in Rockies history) of 15 consecutive games (dating back to July 31, 2018) of allowing at least one home run.
