      Rockies SP Eddie Butler clobbered by Mets for 10th loss

      Rockies starter Eddie Butler arrived on the mound Thursday having lost four straight decisions. Wielding the bats against him were the torrid Mets. His bullpen was in shambles. One could have predicted the outcome - and one would have been right. Butler was mashed for six runs on seven hits in four innings, then the relievers were clobbered as well in a 12-3 rout. Butler, who walked one and fanned four, blew a 2-0 lead in the first inning on RBI doubles by David Murphy, Juan Uribe and Kelly Johnson. Another run-scoring double by Johnson and two-run homer by Curtis Granderson sent Butler to the showers and all but assured that his record would be lowered to 3-10. The right-hander has given up a whopping 29 earned runs in his last 30 1/3 innings to send his ERA skyrocketing to 5.90.

      Rockies SP Eddie Butler hurt by longball in loss on Wedesday

      Rockies rookie starter Eddie Butler pitched fairly well against the Cubs on Wednesday afternoon, but he was simply outpitched by the crafty veteran Jon Lester. Butler allowed three runs on five hits over five innings. He walked three and struck out four, needing 82 pitches (45 strikes) to get through the fifth in the 3-2 loss. Butler (3-7, 4.82 ERA) was bitten by the longball on Wednesday. He gave up a lead-off home run to Dexter Fowler in the first inning, and then allowed a two-run shot to Anthony Rizzo in the third to account for all the scoring the Cubs would have on the afternoon. "He got himself into some trouble but got big outs," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said, per MLB.com. "He threw the ball well. The home run by Anthony Rizzo got some help. The ball was going to right field today. But [Butler] did a nice job." The youngster has made two starts since coming back from the minor leagues. He has given up six earned runs over 11 innings in those outings. He has yet to more than six innings any start of his young career.

      Rockies SP Eddie Butler starting Sunday vs. Padres

      Rookie right-hander Eddie Butler will make his next start for the Rockies on Sunday against the Padres, according to the Denver Post. Butler made his last big-league start back on June 5, when he allowed six runs on 11 hits against the Marlins. He was sent down to Triple-A following that start, but his numbers with Albuquerque have not been all that impressive. Butler is 2-2 with a 6.27 ERA in six starts for the Isotopes. With the Rockies this year, Butler is 3-6 with a 4.80 ERA. However, removing that June 5 start brings his ERA down to more respectable 4.22. It is not known if this will be a spot start for Butler, or if he has earned a more perminent role in the rotation.
