Ricky Nolasco and the Florida Marlins took game one of today's doubleheader (or in other words, the game seen by almost nobody) 4-1. Nolasco (2-0) went eight innings and struck out nine, giving up only an Ian Stewart RBI single in the fourth (seven hits total). Otherwise, it was Operation Shutdown for the Rockies' offense, with Chris Iannetta putting out a particularly poor effort with three punchouts. The Fish were also helped by solo home runs from Dan Uggla and Brett Carroll early on.
Greg Smith (1-2) took the loss, going five innings and giving up four runs on eight hits. Which isn't terrible from your fifth starter, but the offense wasn't up to the task today. Manny Corpas provided a bright note for Colorado though, pitching three scoreless, hitless innings of relief--continuing his nice start to 2010.
8 - 9
A depressing graph:
Played Well in a Losing Effort: Corpas (.089 WPA), Todd Helton (.088)
Not So Much: G. Smith (-.144), Carlos Gonzalez (-.104), Iannetta (-.098)
