Game Wrap: Rockies 4, White Sox 1: Rox beat Sox, Nicasio poxes bats

Justin Edmonds

Juan Nicasio threw five innings of no-hit, no-run baseball and the Rockies cruised to a 4-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox.

Juan Nicasio was good today. Very good.

I need to keep covering Juan Nicasio games because every time I do he brings it. Today he posted a line of 5.0 IP, 0 H, 0 R, and a whopping 7 Ks, bringing his fake ERA to 2.86

The Rockies offense got going in the first when Drew Stubbs started the game with a double off of Chris Sale. As notorious Rockies optimist, RockyMountainWay91 put it, "what to do with Drew Stubbs. We have so many decent outfielders."

Second baseman DJ LeMahieu must have spent some time this off season reading us know-it-alls at Purple Row writing about his lack of offense. He singled in Stubbs as part of a 3-4 performance that also included a triple, bringing his average to a robust .356.

It was nice to see Michael Cuddyer get in on the action as his bat has been pretty quiet this Spring. He singled in LeMahieu and would later plate Charlie Culberson in the fifth inning with a double,

Jordan Pacheco hit his first home run of the Spring today, for whatever that is worth.

The White Sox did manage to scratch out a run against Chat Bettis in the sixth but were otherwise held mostly silent. The grabbed only three hits on the afternoon.

Corey Dickerson doubled in his only at-bat of the day. Did someone say something about a lot of decent outfielders? He is now hitting .370 which is a good average in the spring, or summer, or winter, or in college. Doesn't necessarily translate to anything, but hitting .370 is hard anywhere.
