Juan NiCasio (1-0) hopes to find the pitching touch that he showed in his first start of the year when he went 7 innings while allowing just a solo HR in the Rockies' 12-2 win over Arizona. Andrew Cashner (1-1) on the other hand is hoping to build on his last start in which he almost threw the first no-hitter in Padres history.
NiCasio followed up his strong performance against Arizona with somewhat of a letdown, giving up 4 ER in 5 innings to the White Sox. The 27-year-old right-hander has posted an impressive ERA of 3.75 after soaring past 5.00 for the last two years. NiCasio had success against San Diego last year in two starts although he received no-decisions after allowing just 3 ER. Nick Hundley may get the start for the Padres as the catcher has gone 4 for 10 with a HR in his career against NiCasio.
San Diego's Andrew Cashner flirted with a no-hitter his last time out, allowing just a 6th inning single to Rajai Davis in the Padres 6-0 win over Detroit. Cashner had a career high 11 strikeout s in the game and lowered his season ERA to a microscopic 1.29.
The Rockies got to Cashner in 2013 though with the right- hander going 0- 2 in 3 starts. Cashner gave up 10 runs in 21 innings which amounted to a 4.29 ERA. DJ LeMahie u has led the charge with 5 hits in 10 AB against the pitcher while the San Diego roster has an overall average of .346 (28 for 81) versus Cashner.
