Rockies beat Brewers 7-3

Published On: Apr 03 2013 11:05:08 PM CDT

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 two of three 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.

Wily Peralta (0-1) gave up six hits and four runs over five and a third innings.

Rickie Weeks paced the Brewers offense with three hits including his first home run of the season.

The Brewers have an off day on Thursday before beginning a weekend series with the Arizona Diamondbacks at Miller Park Friday night.
