DENVER (AP) - Rookie Juan Nicasio pitched seven strong innings and Dexter Fowler doubled, walked and scored twice in his return from a nearly month-long demotion to the minor leagues, leading the Colorado Rockies past the Milwaukee Brewers 4-0 Friday night.
Mark Ellis doubled twice and Todd Helton added a pair of RBI singles to help Colorado win for the fourth time in five games.
Nicasio (4-2) allowed four hits, walked none and struck out four in helping Colorado handcuff the Brewers, who dropped to a 16-31 on the road. Their road winning percentage of .340 is an NL low.
Matt Lindstrom and Huston Street finished off the shutout by pitching an inning apiece.
Chris Narveson (6-6) pitched nearly as well as his counterpart in a six-inning outing, allowing five hits and three runs.
