Juan Nicasio struck out nine and allowed just five hits over seven innings as the Rockies lost 2-1 to the Dodgers on Saturday night. The Rockies offense failed to break through against the Dodgers Aaron Harang, getting only four hits overall and failing to score in a critical third inning when the hits did come.

Josh Outman took the loss for the Rockies in his season debut, facing only James Loney in the eighth, he gave up a single and then sat to watch Matt Belisle let Loney around the rest of the way for the winning run. Tyler Colvin hit a solo home run in the seventh inning off of Harang for the Rockies only score.

The Rockies best and only chance for a rally came in the third inning when Wilin Rosario led off with a double and Jonathan Herrera added another later the same inning with no resulting runs. While that part's frustrating, the bigger issue for the Rockies would be that there was only one real scoring opportunity against a pitcher like Harang.
