      Rockies pitcher Chris Rusin receives loss Saturday

      Rockies pitcher Chris Rusin took the loss Saturday despite a quality start, giving up three runs on five hits and two walks over six innings while striking out four. All three runs came on solo homers, not a good showing for a Rockies pitcher on the road, but otherwise Rusin wasn't bad. He'll finish the season with a 5.33 ERA, and his home/road splits are almost identical so that figure doesn't look like a Coors Field mirage. He'll likely still be in the mix for a rotation spot next season, though.

      Rockies SP Chris Rusin gets plenty of run support in win Sunday

      Rockies starting pitcher Chris Rusin (6-9) picked up the victory Sunday, giving up four runs (three earned) on eight hits and three walks, while striking out three batters in a 12-5 victory over the Dodgers. Rusin didn't need to be stellar as his team cobbled together six runs through the first four innings. However, he's now allowed at least three runs in his last seven appearances dating back to Aug. 22. The 28-year-old has had a rough season this year, posting a 5.37 ERA and 1.62 WHIP through 125 2/3 innings.

      Rockies SP Chris Rusin gets rocked in loss to Pirates on Tuesday

      Rockies starter Chris Rusin took his ninth loss Tuesday against Pittsburgh as he allowed six runs on eight hits and four walks over four innings. He struck out two. Rusin has actually been worse on the road than at Coors Field this year, even though his home ERA is now up to 5.31 in 11 games (10 starts). Still, he's serving up a 5.46 ERA in 11 road games (again, 10 starts) and hitters are batting .320/.373/.536 off him in 272 plate appearances. In this case, it isn't Coors, it's Rusin. His ERA is up to 5.39.

      Rockies SP Chris Rusin so-so Tuesday against Dodgers

      Rockies starter Chris Rusin allowed three earned runs on five hits and two walks over six innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the Dodgers. He struck out three. Rusin has allowed at least three runs in each of his last five starts and has seen his ERA jump from 3.99 to 5.11 in that span. The rest of the Rockies' remaining games are either at home or at Arizona, both tough parks for pitchers. Rusin's road ERA (5.46) is actually worse than his Coors Field ERA (4.74), but neither is desirable.

      Rockies SP Chris Rusin tosses second complete game at Coors

      Rockies left-hander Chris Rusin didn't just beat the Giants on Thursday night. He made history. Rusin became the first Colorado pitcher to toss two complete games at Coors Field in the same season since Aaron Cook in 2008. He allowed three runs on six hits with one walk and five strikeouts. He threw 69 of 103 pitches for strikes. Oddly, two of the three runs he allowed came off the bat of opposing pitcher Ryan Vogelsong, who took him yard in the third. Rusin has four quality starts over his last five outings and has lowered his ERA to 4.78, which is not bad considering he gave up 11 runs in two innings in a start two weeks ago.

      Rockies SP Chris Rusin finds groove too late in loss to Pirates

      Mediocre was not good enough for Rockies starter Chris Rusin on Saturday night. It rarely is against Pittsburgh these days. Rusin surrendered three runs on five hits and three walks in six innings in lowering his record to 4-7. He struck out three. A three-run homer by Aramis Ramirez in the first got Rusin off to a terrible start, but he settled in thereafter. He retired eight of the next nine batters and allowed just two hits the rest of the way. Rusin rebounded nicely from his last start, when he gave up 11 runs in only two innings against the Mets.

      Rockies' Chris Rusin endures horrific start vs. Mets on Saturday

      Rockies starter Chris Rusin got hammered by the Mets on Saturday. The young left-hander lasted just two-plus innings, as he allowed a whopping 11 runs on 12 hits, including an eight-run third inning, en route to the 14-9 loss. Rusin (4-6) saw his ERA jump from 3.99 to 4.97 with the disastrous outing. The Mets hit him early and often, and he just wasn't able to overcome the barrage of offense. It was a step backwards for Rusin, who fired a complete-game shutout his last time out.

      Rockies' Chris Rusin takes tough-luck loss against Mets on Tuesday

      Rockies left-hander Chris Rusin was hit hard, but ultimately put together a solid pitching line against the Mets on Tuesday. Rusin allowed just one run on eight hits over six innings of work. He walked one and struck out five, but was overmatched by Matt Harvey, who blanked the Rockies for eight innings in the 4-0 Rockies loss. Rusin (3-5, 4.43) ERA was matching zeroes with Harvey until he allowed a run to cross in the sixth inning. This was Rusin's first quality start since July 20. He had posted a 7.80 ERA over his previous three starts entering play on Tuesday.

      Mound misery continues for Rockies SP Chris Rusin

      The strong early-summer run of Rockies starter Chris Rusin is becoming a distant memory. He continued his recent struggles Wednesday against Seattle. Rusin yielded three runs on eight hits in five innings to take a no-decision. He walked three and struck out three. At least his problems were limited to one inning - a miserable fourth in which he gave up four consecutive hits, including run-scoring singles by Robinson Cano and Franklin Gutierrez. Pitcher Taijuan Walker added an RBI double as the Mariners batted around. Rusin has given up 13 runs on a whopping 28 hits in his last 15 innings pitched. His ERA now sits at 4.66 after he had dropped it to a respectable 3.88.
