      Rockies RP Justin Miller suffers blown save in loss to D-Backs Thursday

      Rockies reliever Justin Miller was charged with a blown save and his third loss of the season after yielding four runs while recording just two outs in Wednesday's 8-6 loss to the Diamondbacks. The Rockies entered the bottom of the seventh inning clinging to a two-run lead, but after retiring the first two batters with relative ease, Miller imploded. He first gave up an inside-the-park homer by Phil Gosselin, then surrendered an infield single, a base hit, and a two-run double, in succession before getting the yank. The poor outing was quite uncharacteristic for Miller, who gave up just one run and two hits while striking out 18 batters over 12 innings in September. The Rockies will likely write off Thursday's blowup as an aberration and continue to deploy him in the late innings.

      Rockies remove John Axford as closer, going with committee

      The Rockies have made a change in the back-end of their bullpen. Manager Walt Weiss has removed John Axford from the closer's role, after he record his fifth blown save of the season, and fourth in a row on Thursday. "I had a conversation with John a little earlier and I told him I was going to get him out of that ninth inning for a little bit and let him catch his breath," Weiss said Friday, per The Denver Post. Axford, who once saved 46 games in a season, got off to a blazing start in 2015. He had converted each of his first 12 save opportunities and gave up just one earned run over his first 20 appearances. But he has struggled lately, posting a whopping 12.15 ERA over his past nine outings. "I'm not so bullheaded as to say that I want to pitch in the ninth inning and that's how it has to be," Axford said. "I have pitched in other innings and I've had success in other innings. A lot of my success has come in the ninth, but that's also where some of the pain comes. "Stepping away definitely could be beneficial. It's worked before for me. It worked in 2012." Weiss indicated he will likely go with a closer-by-committee approach, with the likes of Rafael Betancourt, Tommy Kahnle and Justin Miller as potential ninth-inning options. "We have a few different options down there, so it will probably come down match-ups and who is available," Weiss said. "So there will be a few different guys throwing at the end."
