If its a shutout, you get the chance, but if you show signs of trouble, you are going to be taken out. Only if its a no no or perfect game will the manager stick with you until you pass out basically.
That and it is a close game, the Rockies can't afford to lose at this point of the season. I'm sure if it were 8-0 or some big lead that Hurdle would leave him in a bit longer to rest his bullpen.
