Rox put up 15, as Nicasio wins in debut…

Rookie Juan Nicasio making his major league debut tonight, came away with his first win after an impressive pitching performance. Nicasio went 7 innings allowing 1 run, 6 hits, 2 walks and 2 strikeouts on 88 pitches.

The offense woke up tonight with 15 runs on 18 hits. Six Rockies had multiple hits, led by Chris Iannetta’s 4 for 5 night with 2 homeruns and 6 RBIs. Ryan Spilborghs had a 4 RBI night going 3 for 4 at the plate. Now if you’ve been following this team at all this season,you would get too excited about this offensive explosion. At least not yet. It in now ways means that the team has found it’s offensive groove. We wont know that for a few more games, once and if they are able to be more consistent on the offensive side and string together a few wins. Dont get me wrong, the offense tonight was outstanding and a treat to see, especially for players who so far this season have underachieved at the plate, like Iannetta, Tulo and Spilly to name a few. The Rockies can begin to change their misfortunes at the plate starting with tomorrow’s rubber match which features Jhoulys Chacin(5-3, 3.09) going against Kyle Lohse(6-2, 2.06)
