Guthrie needs to ‘step up’

‘If they kick me off the team today it wouldn’t surprise me’
Colorado Rockies pitcher Jeremy Guthrie wasn’t so good in his first start in the Arizona Desert, allowing seven runs on 11 hits in 3 1/3 innings against the Diamondbacks. “He is a guy we need, simply put. We have kids in this rotation, and the kids the two previous days stepped up and gave us tremendous performances. He has to realize that he has to step up. We need him in the fold,” Rockies manager Jim Tracy said.
Rockies rumpus

Arizona manager Kirk Gibson gave Justin Upton the night off and might not play him tonight to give the right fielder a mental break. Upton is hitting .243 with four hits in his last 24 at-bats, and Gibson said he is pressing as he tries to break out of the season-long slump. ... Rockies INF Jonathan Herrera, who has been on the DL since May 23 with a strained right hamstring, will begin his rehab assignment with Double-A Tulsa today. ... Arizona LHP Wade Miley, the starter tonight against Colorado, leads all rookies with six wins and a 2.72 ERA. Rockies LHP Josh Outman will make his second start after beginning the season with eight appearances out of the bullpen.
