Rockies Vs. Diamondbacks: Arizona Jump On Nicasio, Up 6-2 In Third

Juan Nicasio's first home start of the 2012 season was by no means comfortable, as the Arizona Diamondbacks took him for six runs in only 2.2 innings pitched on Friday night. What will sting the most for Nicasio is he had about as much to do with his own undoing than did the Snakes, whose five hits were equalled by the five walks issued by Nicasio.

After giving up two runs in the first inning and blanking Arizona in the second, Nicasio lost all control in the third. After Jason Kubel struck out swinging, Justin Upton reached on a bunt single, which was followed by a Miguel Montero homer to right that made it 4-2 Diamondbacks. Nicasio then walked Chris Young, who advanced to third on a single from Paul Goldschmidt. That was followed by a Geoff Blum sacrifice fly to score Young and a Ryan Roberts double to right to score Blum and make it 6-2 Arizona.

And that would be all for Nicasio, who was relieved by Esmil Rogers, who induced a ground out from Willie Bloomquist to end the inning.
