Tyler Chatwood dominated the Cubs in Sunday's start to the tune of seven shutout innings with seven strikeouts and just one walk. He earned his second win of the season.

The right-hander was shelled at Coors Field in his last start, but Sunday's excellent performance dropped his road ERA to 0.68 through two outings. The 26-year-old doesn't profile as an exceptional strikeout pitcher, so perspective owners should not expect returns similar to Sunday's in that regard, but his two walks through three outings indicate that his control is his biggest weapon at the moment. He will look to build off of this performance versus the Dodgers next Sunday.
