Rockies remove John Axford as closer, going with committee
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

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."

Rockies RP John Axford gets burned by former club Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Rockies closer John Axford earned his fifth blown save of the season on Thursday, as he allowed the game-winning run to score in the bottom of the ninth in the 9-8 loss to the Cardinals. Axford gave up two runs on two hits while recording one out. He walked three batters, including one to force in the winning run. 

Axford has now blown each of his last four save opportunities, and has allowed eight earned runs over his last 3 2/3 innings, spanning five appearances.

Rockies SP Chris Rusin homers, gets rocked by Cardinals Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Rockies starter Chris Rusin got shelled by the Cardinals on Thursday. The left-hander allowed six runs on 10 hits over five innings. He didn't walk a batter and struck out five, and he did not factor in the decision as the Rockies lost 9-8 in walk-off fashion.

Rusin got off to a shaky start, allowing four runs through the first two innings, including a three-run homer by Matt Carpenter in the second. Carpenter got to Rusin again in the fifth, as he blasted a solo shot as part of a two-run inning. 

The young hurler did help his own cause in this one, as he went 2 for 2 at the plate, including his first career home run--a two-run shot in the fourth inning.

The Rockies' southpaw finishes July 0-2 with a 4.50 ERA over six appearances--five starts.
