    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Apr 16, 2014
    Juan Nicasio pitched six solid innings and the Colorado Rockies recorded a rare road victory with a 3-2 win over the San Diego Padres on Tuesday night. Nicasio limited the light-hitting Padres to two runs on six hits. Starting pitcher Juan Nicasio overcame a rough first inning and clawed through six frames, and a nail-biting bullpen effort made a one-run lead hold up as the Rockies beat the Padres, 3-2, at Petco Park in front of 18,012. The Rockies haven't won many close games, but they've had a lot of practice. It paid off Tuesday night. The right-hander allowed hits to San Diego's first four batters in the first inning as the Padres took a 2-0 lead. The Rockies' scoring stopped after Wilin Rosario singled in the go-ahead run in the fifth on a two-out, bases-loaded infield hit. "You know what you're going to get when you're playing in the National League West, so you come into the year mentally prepared for that numbers don't lie," Hawkins said.
