Bullpen completes sweep

Six pitchers allowed ten hits (eight singles and two doubles), one walk, and nary a run to beat the Rockies yesterday afternoon in Colorado. It was the eighth team shutout and their twelfth win in the month. I note that because they won only eleven games in July and ten in August.

The Giants also had ten hits with half coming from Joc Pederson (three singles) and Mike Yastrzemski (homer, double). The key stat is the four double plays turned, all of which ended innings. FNG RH Jharel Cotton (a recent waiver claim) pitched 2-2/3 to claim the lion's share of outs.
