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.

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.

Ivan Nova was pulled after only five innings Monday because he was dealing with "arm fatigue," according to Yankees manager Joe Girardi.

It doesn't appear at this point that it might affect Nova's next scheduled start, but it's something worth noting nonetheless. Nova holds a 3.38 ERA over six starts since returning from Tommy John surgery, although he's struck out only 18 over 34 2/3 innings.

Kris Bryant delivered a walk-off two-run home run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning to help the Cubs overtake the Rockies on Monday.

Rafael Soriano blew the save in the top half of the ninth inning, allowing four runs to put the Cubs down 8-7. Kris Bryant picked up his teammate, victimizing Rockies closer John Axford for a two-run bomb to left-center. He hit an RBI single as part of a six-run fourth inning as well. The rookie has done well thus far, batting .254/.358/.453 with 14 home runs and 59 RBI.

Carlos Gonzalez homered twice in a 4-for-5 effort, but the Rockies lost to the Cubs on Monday.

Gonzalez started the scoring when he drilled a two-run home run to left-center off of Kyle Hendricks in the third inning. He helped the Rockies rally for a four-run ninth inning, drilling a go-ahead two-run home run in the ninth inning against Rafael Soriano. It wasn't a lead they would hold, however. Gonzalez has been on fire in July, racking up 10 multi-hit performances in 19 games. He has 20 home runs on the season with 51 RBI and a .278/.332/.520 triple-slash line.

Chris Capuano will start on Tuesday against the Rangers.

It will presumably just be a spot start. Capuano holds a 5.64 ERA and 1.55 WHIP over 15 appearances -- three starts -- this season and allowed four runs over an inning of work in his last game.
Jul 27 - 11:39 PM

Ivan Nova got the win after holding the Rangers to two runs in five innings, helping the Yankees to a 6-2 victory on Monday.

Both runs scored in the second inning on an RBI double to Elvis Andrus and an RBI single to Leonys Martin. Nova allowed five hits and two walks overall while striking out three. The right-hander has been solid in six starts since making his season debut on June 24, brandishing a 3.38 ERA with a 1.30 WHIP and an 18/12 K/BB ratio over 34 2/3 innings. Nova will take the mound in Chicago against the White Sox over the weekend.

Matt Harrison surrendered six runs in six innings, taking the loss on Monday versus the Yankees.

Didi Gregorius hit a two-run home run off of him in the third inning and Alex Rodriguez drilled a solo shot in the sixth. He then allowed a walk, a double, and a two-run single before exiting with no outs in the seventh. Overall, Harrison yielded six hits and a pair of walks while striking out two. He's allowed six runs in two of three starts since coming off of the disabled list. He'll try to rebound in his next start at home against the Giants.
Jul 27 - 11:34 PM

Didi Gregorius went 3-for-4 with a two-run single and a two-run home run as the Yankees downed the Rangers on Monday.

Gregorius tied the game at 2-2 in the third inning when he drilled a two-run home run off of Matt Harrison. He added insurance in the seventh inning with a two-run single. It's only the fifth multi-RBI game of the season for the shortstop, who has left Yankees fans pining for Derek Jeter as he's hitting .248/.297/.340 with five home runs and 25 RBI.
