He allowed 31 hits, including just three home runs, while holding opposing hitters to a .177 average and a .514 OPS.“I think pitch-to-pitch adjustments, that’s the biggest thing,” said Rockies catcher Tony Wolters, who has been behind the plate recently with Marquez. “He’ll like not feel good on one of them and he’ll know exactly what it is. He’s not going to have four, five, six pitches in a row where it’s, ‘What the heck is going on?’ He needs to stay with his routine, keep knowing his major keys — stay tall, his direction and tempo — knowing how to get out of the bad feelings and just (continue) executing.”Marquez now throws a two-seam fastball with movement in addition to a four-seam fastball that touches 98 mph.

That start snapped a streak of nine straight starts in which Rodriguez allowed two or fewer runs.He leads major league rookie pitchers with a 2.47 ERA and is tied for fourth among NL rookies with six wins and ranks second with an opponent’s batting average of .207.“It’s a little different mindset,” Rodriguez said, harkening back to late May, when he joined the Giants here. “You’ve been around for three months already, so you kind of have an idea of what to expect.”Rodriguez has been a godsend for the Giants, who have lost pitchers Johnny Cueto and Jeff Samardzija to injuries and were without ace Madison Bumragner until June.Rodriguez began his career in the Minnesota organization and left the Twins to sign with the Giants as a minor league free agent last winter; hence what he has done for the Giants comes as a surprise, at least to those outside the organization.“I guess so,” Rodriguez said. “I wasn’t on nobody’s radar. I was stuck in Double-A with the Twins. But that’s the good thing about this game is that every year’s different. Every day’s different.“My mentality going into the offseason was just to weigh my options and see what happens Carlos Baerga Jersey , whatever team decides to pick me up and see what opportunity they want to give me.
