Colorado Rockies starter Juan Nicasio will be looking to get his second win of the season when he faces the San Diego Padres, who will have Eric Stults on the mound.
Juan Nicasio didn't have a very good start last Wednesday when he faced the Chicago White Sox, but his offense was able to keep him from taking the loss. The right-hander was only able to go five innings in the start and gave up four earned runs on eight hits while striking out six and walking two.
No one on the Padres has had as much success against Nicasio as third baseman Chase Headley, who has six hits, including two home runs in 12 at-bats against him. Chris Denorfia only has two hits in 10 career at-bats against Nicasio, but one of those two hits was a home run.
Eric Stults may have lost his second game in as many starts, but he was actually pretty good against the Cleveland Indians. The lefty gave up just one earned run on five hits over 5.2 innings in that start, but his team wasn't able to give him any run support. Going into Tuesday's game against the Rockies, Stults has 5.59 ERA through nine innings pitched.
Stults, like most lefties in the National League, does not like facing Troy Tulowitzki. The Rockies shortstop has gone up against Stults 20 times in his career and has five hits and six walks in their matchups.
