Arizona Fall League 2012: Tyler Chatwood gets no-decision in extra-innings win

Kyle Terada-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Three Rockies pitchers and two position players saw time in fall league action on Monday.

Tyler Chatwood, one of the Colorado Rockies' top pitching prospects, struck out five in Monday's start as his Salt River Rafters defeated the Phoenix Desert Dogs, 4-2, in 10 innings in the Arizona Fall League.

Chatwood pitched 3-2/3 innings, giving up three walks and the only two runs Phoenix would score on the afternoon. The 22-year-old righty pitched 64 innings for the Rockies in 2012, with a 5.43 ERA.

Outfielder Kent Matthes was 1-4 from the plate while scoring one run and drawing a walk. Matthes is hitting .267 in the AFL after hitting .214 in double-A Tulsa during the regular season. Catcher Lars Davis was also in action, driving in one run, but striking out three times on a hitless day.

After Chatwood gave up two runs to start the game, Rockies prospects Cory Riordan and Coty Woods pitched the final three innings, giving up no hits while striking out one. Woods claimed the win, shutting down Phoenix in the bottom of the tenth inning.

Salt River, the AFL team featuring Rockies prospects, is 4-2 on the season and will play Phoenix again tomorrow night at 6:35 p.m. MT.
