Rockies Blank Milwaukee, Marquez Winner
Thursday, August 27th, 2020
German Marquez of Colorado easily handled the Milwaukee Brewers, stopping them on 5 hits and chucking a complete-game 2-0 shutout.

"He really did a job on us," said Milwaukee manager Gary Jones. "He had good command of his pitches. He changed speeds well and confused us. We never could zero in on him, but he certainly zeroed in on us."

He finished the game with 9 strikeouts and 2 walks in a solid outing.

On the year Marquez has compiled a 9-9 mark with a 3.90 ERA.
