Rox can’t hold lead in Nicasio’s return to hill
By Thomas Hardin | HOUSTON -- Juan Nicasio's well-chronicled comeback story culminated with seven strong innings, but Sunday afternoon didn't end the way the Rockies envisioned. Third baseman Jordan Pacheco's throwing error with two outs in the eighth opened the door for the Astros to pull off a 3-2 victory at Minute Maid Park, and take the three-game, season-opening series. The Rockies will play their home opener Monday against the Giants.
