Indians' RHP Perez throws well in loss to Rockies

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) - Chris Perez pitched a perfect inning in his spring debut for Cleveland as the Colorado Rockies beat an Indians split squad 6-3 Thursday.

Perez, out since February with a strained left oblique, said he feels better than when he was an AL All-Star last year. Perez revealed for the first time that he hurt his arm last spring.

Juan Nicasio allowed two runs and four hits over 5 2-3 innings, striking out six.

Troy Tulowitzki had three hits and Chris Nelson a two-run double for Colorado.

Minor leaguer Beau Mills hit two homers and Michael Brantley added another for Cleveland.

Indians starter Derek Lowe allowed two runs over three innings.
