Player Notes
John Axford struck out one over a perfect inning while recording a save in Wednesday's win over the Reds.

Advice: He struck out Brandon Phillips and also got a flyout and groundout to preserve the two-run victory. Axford has been surprisingly effective for the Rockies, nailing down all eight of his save chances while posting a 0.75 ERA. He's allowed just two hits over his last seven appearances.

John Axford collected his sixth save of the year Saturday as the Rockies beat the Giants 5-3 in the second half of a doubleheader at Coors Field.

Advice: Axford gave up a leadoff single to Gregor Blanco, but that's all the damage the Giants could muster down two in the ninth. Axford has been pretty steady all season and is now running away with the Rockies' ninth-inning gig. He's obviously a must-own in all standard fantasy leagues, even as the closer on a bad Colorado team.

Wed, May 27 Rotoworld
John Axford disposed of the Phillies in a scoreless ninth inning, earning his fifth save as the Rockies eked out a 6-5 victory on Tuesday.

Advice: Axford got ground outs from Cesar Hernandez and Ben Revere before getting Freddy Galvis to fly out to center to end the game. The lowly Rockies have won only three games dating back to April 28, so Axford has seen few save chances. He's 5-for-5 with a 1.13 ERA and a 7/4 K/BB ratio in eight innings.
