Strong Start for Nicasio Not Enough as Rockies Fall 2-1 to Dodgers

Pitching off, offense on. Pitching on, offense off. The Colorado Rockies (13-19) are looking for ways to flip both switches ‘on’ at the same time. Rockies’ right-hander Juan Nicasio got little run support last night, and saw his team lose to the Los Angeles Dodgers (22-11) 2-1. The final game of the series is this afternoon at 2:10 MT in Dodger Stadium (TV: Root Sports).

Juan Nicasio went seven innings and fanned nine, a high for the Rockies this season. Also Tyler Colvin, continuing his case for increased time in the starting lineup, homered in the seventh for the Rockies’ only run. But the homer was one of just four Rockies hits.

“We have to do better offensively when we get pitching like that,” Rockies manager Jim Tracy said.

Official: Saturday’s Box Score.

The Rockies dropped to 5-9 on the road and 1-4 on the current eight-game NL West road trip. Other than a six-run, 13-hit performance in Wednesday’s victory over the Padres, the Rockies have scored just seven runs. This time there weren’t many fly balls, because Harang (2-2) forced 11 ground-ball outs in eight innings.

Tickets are available for the Rockies next home game at Coors Field on Wednesday, May 16th vs. the Arizona Diamondbacks, and can be purchased by calling (800) 388-ROCK, or click here.
