Rockies reliever John Axford nails down second save
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/23/15) Getting a rare chance to nail down a victory, Rockies right-hander John Axford did just that Thursday against visiting San Diego.
Axford walked Yonder Alonso with one out, but struck out Will Venable and Alexi Amarista to make the one-run lead stand up and earn his second save.
He was subbing Thursday for closer Adam Ottavino, who has given up just one hit in 8 1/3 shutout innings this year, but was given the day off by Walt Weiss.
"I wanted to stay off Otto," Weiss told the Denver Post.

Rockies P John Axford (personal) may need longer medical leave
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(4/18/15) With Rockies pitcher John Axford's family medical emergency leave set to expire Sunday, manager Walt Weiss indicated Axford could need the leave extended beyond Sunday, reports MLB.com.
"That's something we have to deal with through the Commissioner's office if we felt it [an extension] is needed," Weiss said. "I'm still not sure on that yet."
Axford is on the family medical emergency leave after his son was bit by a rattle snake during spring training.
Rockies' LaTroy Hawkins removed from closer role
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/13/15) Rockies manager Walt Weiss said Monday that pitcher LaTroy Hawkins will get "a break" from closing duties, the Denver Post reports.
"We have decided to give 'Hawk a break in that role," manager Walt Weiss said before Monday's game. "We're just trying to give him a little bit of a breather for the time being."
Rafael Betancourt will be in line to get a save opportunity Monday if needed, but the team could also use Adam Ottavino, John Axford or Boone Logan in the role. Ottavino, who the manager cited specifically as one player who would be used in the role, is likely unavailable Monday after pitching Saturday and Sunday but has racked up seven strikeouts in 4 1/3 scoreless innings while allowing just one hit and one walk.
Axford was signed this offseason as potential insurance in the ninth inning, but he's away from the team due to a family medical emergency. Logan has tossed three perfect innings in three appearaces.
Rockies move RP John Axford (family leave) off active roster
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(4/12/15) The Rockies announced Sunday that they have moved reliever John Axford off their active roster as he deals with a family issue, replacing him with pitcher Scott Oberg, per the Denver Post.
Axford's 2-year-old son was bitten by a rattlesnake in Arizona during spring training, and complications have caused the boy to need to be flown to a specialist in Colorado. Axford, who picked up a save Thursday, will miss a minimun of three games and a maximum of seven games.
To make room for Oberg, the Rockies moved Charlie Culberson to the 60-day disabled list.
