Nicasio, Rockies beat Brewers 7-3

MILWAUKEE (AP) -

Juan Nicasio pitched six effective innings for his first victory in almost a year while Wilin Rosario, Michael Cuddyer and Dexter Fowler homered to lift the Colorado Rockies over the Milwaukee Brewers 7-3 on Wednesday night.

The Rockies took 2 of 3 under new manager Walt Weiss in the season-opening series at Miller Park.

Nicasio (1-0) allowed two runs and seven hits for his first win since last April 30, when he beat the Los Angeles Dodgers. Winless in the next five starts, he sustained a season-ending knee injury on June 2.
