MILWAUKEE, June 23 (UPI) -- Shawn Chacon worked in and out of a jam in the ninth inning Wednesday night as Colorado held on for a 3-2 victory over Milwaukee.
A converted starter, Chacon has struggled in his first season as the Rockies' closer and entered this game with an 0-5 record, an 8.38 ERA and six blown saves in 30 appearances.
Earlier this week, Chacon met with Manager Clint Hurdle regarding his status and received a vote of confidence.
Hurdle's move paid off as Overbay hit a fly ball to shallow left field before Brady Clark popped out, securing Chacon's 14th save.
Milwaukee also left the bases loaded in the eighth, when pinch-hitter Brooks Kieschnick fouled out.
