Guthrie fails to get decision in 17-8 Rockies victory

    Former Orioles pitcher Jeremy Guthrie suffered from chronic non-support when he was in Baltmore and led the major leagues in losses two of the past three seasons, but Jeremy showed again on Wednesday night at Coors Field why he sometimes was his own worst enemy.

    Guthrie was staked to a 6-0 lead -- against Giants ace Tim Lincecum, no less -- but could not get out of the fourth inning in his home debut for the Colorado Rockies. The Giants scored seven times in the fourth to take the lead, but the Rockies went on to score a 17-8 victory.

    Jeremy's line: 3 1/3 innings, six earned runs, nine hits, two walks, one strikeout.

    Fun fact: The Rockies have scored a total of 22 runs in Guthrie's first two starts and are 2-0 in those games. The Orioles needed 10 games (and until May 21) to score that many runs for him at the start of the 2011 season and won just three of those games.
