Worth noting

• The last team to win more than seven straight home games to start their season was the Dodgers in 2009, when they won their first 13 home games. The Rockies were 7-0 at home entering Saturday.

• Reid Brignac started at third base on Saturday. It was his fifth start of the season and third at third base.

• Chacin's 1.46 ERA is the third-lowest in franchise history for a pitcher in his first four starts of the season. Ubaldo Jimenez had a 0.95 ERA in 2010 and Shawn Chacon had a 0.98 ERA in 2003 after four starts, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
