Juan Nicasio recorded his first win following last year’s season-ending neck injury, throwing 6 1/3 innings, leading the Colorado Rockies (6-6) to an 8-4 win over the San Diego Padres (3-10) at Coors Field. The Rockies, who went 5-4 in their first homestand of the season, hit the road for a weekend series that starts tomorrow night in Milwaukee.

Nicasio struck out five and yielded four runs on seven hits. He also threw strikes on 65 of his 99 pitches and didn’t walk a batter. In his last start, his first at Coors Field since suffering a broken neck when hit by a line drive, he walked a career-high five and lasted just 2 2/3 innings in a no-decision against the D-backs on Friday.

Official: Wednesday’s Box Score.

“The last start, I had a lot of walks,” Nicasio said. “I told everybody I didn’t feel the ball in my hand the last time. Today, I felt good.”

Tickets are available for the Rockies next home game at Coors Field on April 27th vs. the NY Mets, and can be purchased by calling (800) 388-ROCK, or click here.
