SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Drew Pomeranz went four innings in his third straight start and has yet to complete seven innings this season. The rest of the Colorado starting rotation can share the blame, too.
Drew Pomeranz (1-7) gave up four runs and five hits in the Rockies' 9-3 loss to the San Francisco Giants on Saturday.
"I was struggling to keep the ball down," Pomeranz said. "I was missing up and out mostly. I want to pitch well every time out but I made bad pitches and they put good swings on my bad pitches."
The Rockies starters have pitched four innings or fewer a major league high 33 times.
Pomeranz, 0-4 in his last six starts, struck out three and didn't walk a batter.
"Fastball command. It wasn't there," Rockies manager Jim Tracy said. "He got into bad counts and mislocated pitches. It boils down to gaining an understanding of your delivery and your capability to repeat it. And if it does get out of sync, can you fix yourself in midstream."
