Player Notes
John Axford blew the save in Monday's loss to the Cubs, serving up a walk-off two-run home run to Kris Bryant with two outs in the ninth inning.

Advice: The Rockies had stormed for four runs against Rafael Soriano to take an 8-7 lead, but Axford couldn't hold it. He allowed a one-out single to Dexter Fowler, then Bryant hit a walk-off two-run home run to left-center with two outs. It's his fourth blown save of the season and his third in his last four appearances. He has allowed runs in each of those four outings. Axford is 16-for-20 in save chances overall with a 3.90 ERA and a 29/16 K/BB ratio in 30 innings.

John Axford blew a save Friday after giving up a solo homer to Joey Votto.

Advice: Axford has now allowed four runs on four hits and five walks in 2 2/3 innings over his last three appearances, which includes two blown saves. And two wins, by the way. The 32-year-old has looked like a potential trade chip for Colorado, but his recent performances could turn teams away.

John Axford blew the save but got the win as the Rockies walked off 8-7 winners versus the Rangers on Monday.

Advice: Axford issued a leadoff walk to Leonys Martin, then watched Adrian Beltre double him home with two outs in the ninth inning to tie the game up at 7-7. The right-hander was happy to see Ben Paulsen drive home the walk-off run in the bottom half of the inning. Axford has otherwise been reliable in the ninth inning for the Rockies this season, brandishing a 2.60 ERA with a 25/13 K/BB ratio in 27 2/3 innings while converting the save in 16 of 18 opportunities. The floundering Rockies could trade Axford in the days leading up to the July 31 trade deadline. Depending on where he would end up, Axford's value could be helped or hurt, so he's someone to watch closely in the next week and a half.
