DENVER -- Rockies starter Jhoulys Chacin was pulled from Friday night's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks with left oblique stiffness after throwing his 100th pitch, becoming the first Colorado pitcher to reach that number since last June.
The last time a Colorado starter reached the 100 mark in pitches was June 12, a stretch of 117 games, according to STATS. It was the longest string in the majors since records started being kept by STATS in 1988. Before the Rockies' streak, the longest string of starters not throwing 100 pitches in a game was held by Washington, which went 33 games from Aug. 31, 2011, to April 10, 2012.
