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


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/30/2015) 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


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/22/2015) 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 throws first career shutout


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2015) Rockies starter Chris Rusin had his first career complete game, throwing a shutout against San Diego on Sunday. 

Rusin won for the first time since June 21, snapping a three-decision and nine-start winless streak. 

Rusin improved to 4-5 on the season. 


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


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/11/2015) 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


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/5/2015) 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.


Rockies SP Chris Rusin homers, gets rocked by Cardinals Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/30/2015) 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.

Padres, Rockies get rained out


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/19/2015) The Padres and Rockies were unable to finish their game on Sunday after a rain delay that lasted over two hours.

The game was called with the Rockies leading 1-0 in the top of the fifth inning. The teams will meet again for a make-up game on Sept. 10, a mutual day off for both clubs.

For the Padres, Ian Kennedy (4-9) will take the mound on Monday against the Giants. Rockies starting pitcher Chris Rusin (3-3) gets the nod to start against the Rangers on Monday.


Rockies SP Chris Rusin goes six innings on no-decision


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/9/2015) Rockies starting pitcher Chris Rusin was solid on Wednesday against the Angels. His only problem was -- like most of the league -- he struggled to contain Mike Trout.

Rusin made two mistake during his six innings of work, and both of them came as home runs on the end of Trout's bat. Rusin allowed just five hits and two earned runs while striking out and walking two batters.

Rusin (3-3) has a 4.13 ERA in 52 1/3 innings this season.


Rockies SP Chris Rusin pitches well in loss on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/3/2015) Rockies left-hander Chris Rusin was the victim of a pair of errors on Thursday night, leading to the Diamondbacks 8-1 victory. Rusin pitched six innings, allowing three runs (one earned) on six hits. He walked two and struck out six, as he lowered his ERA to 4.27.

Rusin (3-3) gave himself an early 1-0 lead when he drove home a run with a single in the fifth. But then he surrendered a solo home run to A.J. Pollock to leadoff the sixth inning.

Rusin then got the next two batters out, but walked Welington Castillo. Aaron Hill reached on an uncharacteristic error by Nolan Arenado. Then David Peralta cashed in with a two-run triple, accounting for the damage done to Rusin on the night. 

Still, this makes three consecutive starts of three earned runs or less for Rusin.


Rockies SP Chris Rustin allows 10 hits in no-decision on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/27/2015) Rockies left-hander Chris Rusin was knocked around for five runs (two earned) on 10 hits over 6 1/3 innings against the Giants on Saturday. Rustin walked one and struck out four, but was left with a no-decision int he 7-5 loss.

Rustin gave up three runs in the third inning, thanks in-part to an error and a two-run double by Buster Posey. Rustin then served up a solo home run to Matt Duffy in the fifth inning, leaving the Rockies with a 5-4 lead at the time.

But the wheels came off in the seventh. Rustin was lifted with a runner on and one out in the inning. But a walk and two doubles later, the Giants grabbed the 7-5 lead, and would hold on for the win.

"We gave them a couple extra outs one inning, but Russ did a great job -- really threw the ball well, commanded it, gave us some length," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said, per MLB.com. "He was battling all day. It's a tough lineup to get through multiple times. He certainly gave us a shot to win that game."

Rustin actually lowered his ERA to 4.69 in this one, though it still was not a very effective outing overall.


Rockies SP Chris Rusin throws six innings in win over Brewers


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/21/2015) Rockies starting pitcher Chris Rusin tossed six innings and picked up his third win of the year in Sunday's outing against the Brewers.

Rusin allowed seven hits and three earned runs but received plenty of run support in the 10-4 win. He threw just 84 pitches and struck out two batters before being pulled from the game.

Rusin (3-2) has a 5.03 ERA with 22 strikeouts and 11 walks in 34 innings of work this season.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Rusin, who gave up six earned runs his last time out, lasted four innings on Tuesday. He surrendered seven runs on nine hits, while walking two and striking out four. He needed 92 pitches to get through the four innings.

Rusin got beat up by Luis Valbuena, who touched him up for a solo home run in the second inning and a a three-run shot in the third inning.

Rockies SP Chris Rustin loses re-match with Marlins on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/11/2015) It was just last Saturday that Rockies starter Chris Rusin dominated the Marlins for seven innings in Colorado. Fast-forward to Thursday night in Miami, and this time it was the Marlins that got the last laugh.

Rusin struggled in the re-match on Thursday, allowing six runs on 11 hits over 5 1/3 innings. He walked two and struck out one, needing 105 pitches to complete his outing.

The left-hander got into early trouble when he gave up a three-run home run to Giancarlo Stanton in the first inning. The Marlins tacked on two more in the second, and Jeff Baker added one more on a solo home run in the fifth inning.

Rusin (2-1) had given up just four runs over three starts prior to Thursday. But after this poor performance, his ERA ballooned from 1.45 to 3.38.

"I just didn't hit my spots," Rusin said, per MLB.com. "The ball was up this time. Not like last time where I kept the ball down with movement. Today, I didn't. Left my pitches up, fell behind early, and I had to force myself to throw strikes. Got hurt with a couple of them, especially falling behind early and walking some guys in the first inning to get to Stanton. That's not what you want to do. I found that out."

He'll look to get back on track in his next start, scheduled for Tuesday against the Astros in Houston.

Rusin is scheduled to make his next start Thursday in a rematch with the Marlins in Miami.
