Dodgers Vs. Rockies: Juan Nicasio Looks To Send Colorado On 6-Game Winning Streak

The Colorado Rockies enter Saturday with a five-game winning streak in hand, mostly thanks to an offense that has scored at least seven runs in each game. This has been the longest winning streak for the team this season and a win on Saturday against the Los Angeles Dodgers can make up for the six-game losing streak the team has in May.

Juan Nicasio (2-2, 5.11 ERA) is looking for his first victory since April 30, when he happened to beat the Dodgers at Coors Field. He allowed just two runs in six innings for the 6-2 victory, but May was not as kind. In three of his five May starts, Nicasio gave up six runs each time. However, the last time he did that was on Monday against the Houston Astros. That was the start of this current winning streak, as the offense came through for the 9-7 victory.

Opposing Nicasio will be Aaron Harang (3-3, 4.14 ERA). Harang was on the mound against Nicasio during that April 30 contest, allowing five runs in 5.2 innings. Since then, Harang went 2-1 with a 2.67 ERA in 30 innings pitched. One of those starts was an eight-inning, one-run performance against the Rockies at Dodger Stadium. HE followed that up with seven shutout innings against the Padres.
