Iannetta Hits 2 Homers, Helps Rockies Rout Cards
DENVER (AP) -- Chris Iannetta homered twice and drove in a career-high six runs and Juan Nicasio pitched seven solid innings in his major league debut as the scuffling Colorado Rockies routed the St. Louis Cardinals 15-4 on Saturday night.

The hard-throwing Nicasio (1-0) surrendered just six hits and one unearned run after being recalled from Double-A Tulsa to make a spot start.

Nicasio may have just made a compelling case to stick around a while longer as the Rockies tinker with their rotation in the wake of the season-ending elbow injury to Jorge De La Rosa.

The usually reliable Jaime Garcia (5-1) had a rough outing and the Rockies took full advantage to break out of their offensive funk by setting season highs for runs and hits (18).
