Four innings of one-run ball from Tyler Chatwood to earn the win!
His season ERA: 2.86
Standing O for Chatwood. Comeback stories are fun. Cishek takes over
Big tip of the cap to Tyler Chatwood tonight.
Standing ovation for Chatwood as he's taken out of this ballgame.
He currently has a 2.86 ERA on the season and a 1.82 ERA in 24.2 IP since April 7. That's the 3rd time he's pitched at least 4 innings this year - twice in relief and once in that spot start.
Theo Epstein on Tyler Chatwood's turnaround for #Cubs: "He deserves the credit, not us. Instead of crawling into a hole and pouting with the way last year went, he went home and decided to fix it."
CUBS WIN! Rizzo, Almora (grand slam), and Baez all hit HRs. Chatwood locks down the game. The Cubs will go for the series win tomorrow & at the least they tied it with the win tonight. They improve to 29-18 on the season. 🔥
It's certainly #ComebackSZN for a lot of Cubs this year, but who has the best redemption arc thus far?
EXTREME props to Tyler Chatwood. He came to Chicago with a big contract and struggled terribly and lost his starter spot. A lot of guys don’t recover from that! And he’s been GOOD from the pen. One of the only arms I trust. Plus high socks.
Ridiculous 97mph fastball from Tyler Chatwood.
Is Tyler Chatwood... good?
While Tyler Chatwood was the main pitching hero, give some credit to Cole Hamels. In terms of stuff he had nothing tonight, but he still at least kept the Cubs in the game.
Chatwood may have had a shitty year last season, but he has saved our ass a shit load this season. #Cubs
Despite the HR allowed to McCutchen, Tyler Chatwood has worked his ERA to 2.86 tonight. #Cubs
Cubs 8, Phillies 4
Absolute bombs by Rizzo, Almora, and Baez and Chatwood the hero in relief. That was fun #EverybodyIn
I think the complete change of look from the SP to the long reliever in both the Darvish-Monty game not long ago and the Hamels-Chatwood game today. One goes from a hard throwing control seeking RHP to a more command centered LHP. Opposite today
#TheBIGSUPDATE Joe Maddon may have found something in Tyler Chatwood under the long relief act. He received a standing O after another nice outing from the pen tonight. "It was really all about Chatwood. He made that game possible. When he's throwing strikes he can do anything."
Tyler Chatwood with a 2.86 ERA to start the season
Can we get a big round of applause for Tyler Chatwood? The dude has figured. It. Out. So happy for him 🔥 https://t.co/QX0Jp0GJZL
Tyler Chatwood Revenge Season is my favorite part of 2019. Purest storyline. A future I can believe in. #Cubs
Pelo bullpen Chatwood e Cishek deram conta do recado e seguraram sem sustos a boa vantagem conquistada. No bastão, além dos três heróis capitalizadores da noite, Schwarber e Bryant merecem menção com rebatidas múltiplas. Grande vitória, grande virada! Que timaço! FLY THE W! https://t.co/WMgG400mip
Wasn't able to watch the game earlier, but definitely here for Tyler Chatwood, Bullpen Ace.
We really need to appreciate how amazing Tyler Chatwood was for 4 crucial innings of this game. #Cubs

It's so good to see Tyler Chatwood come back as the dude. So happy for him, he obviously worked really hard
Proud claps: fun game to watch! Rizzo and Javy get a clap for bombs. But the two big claps go to Almora for a granny and Chatwood (yes chatwood) for great work out of the pen! 29th win. #cubswin #EverybodyIn #gocubsgo #flythew #proudclap #rudy #cubstalk
@NBCSChicago @LenKasper @CubsJoeMadd
chatwood has looked pretty good the past few weeks. Seems like he’s hitting his spots more...he’s definitely getting outs...I just can’t get on the chatwood band wagon though. His mannerisms r still just too odd. He doesn’t look confident.
Chatwood went from being booed off the field every game last year to getting an ovation on his exit today. Really happy for him.
Tyler Chatwood gets third win in relief
Is it weird that I want Chatwood to be the Cubs closer at this point of the year?
The Mariners started the season in April 8-1 then a reversal of bad fortune. 15- 28 . Last place . Meanwhile the Cubs started like they were shell shocked at the relief pitching 1-6 now at 29-18 28-12 over their last 30 games and from worst to first . Chatwood long or spot start
Chatwood balled out tonight. Props to him. Keep that shit up.
vs Phillies highlights @JayAndDan
Completely skip Almora's grand slam so you can say Tyler Cole Chatwood 5 times. What a complete farce of a sports cast
I don't think you can do this hashtag at this juncture without mentioning Chatwood
Chatwood regressing from hot garbage status is certainly the most surprising to me. Bryant's return is the most important.
Chatwood has been a savior in long relief this year!
Well Hamels was going to be taken out of the game but Joe didn't want to use a PH w/ 2 outs and No One On in Bottom of 4th
He was going to let Chatwood finish if he had a clean inning but the 1st guy got on so he took him out
Willy or Q IMO. Q showing why he was traded for as a top 20 arm in the game in 2017. Willy showing that MVP potential like 2017
KB was hurt
Kintzler just had basically a rough 2nd half
Almora hasn’t been amazing this year. Currently league average or so
Chatwood close 2nd IMO
I’m here for this Tyler Chatwood comeback
